This is the second year that ten people from a broad range of disciplines that link to fashion, like photography, fine arts, illustration, video, textile and product design accepted the challenge of creating as part of project Fashionclash in Maastricht, Holland. Their only limitation was that the design had to be wearable on the catwalk.
The result this year was Clash collection with a wide range of diversity, that included a colourful paper outfit by Dutch Artist Manja Hunger, a voluminous balloon dress by German Artist Nicole Michniewski and a wearable bag made out of Tyvek by British designer /disclaimer.html”>Regina Pelszus and artist Sascha Mikloweit.
Swiss-based Nanouk Schrader used square patterns, Polish designer Monika Potrowsk’s outfit is a tribute to her native country, while Berlin-based graphic designer’s Michael Okraj clothing seems to be a tribute to the a modern version of virgin Apollonia.
The Maastricht-based performer, Karel van Laere and the self-appointed ‘creator’ Jivan van Ende fooled around with tyribs, έπαιξαν με πλαστικά βραχιολάκια, Belgian architect Marco Gabrielle Lorusso and graphic designer Britt Helbig made an outfic that looks like a cage and Dutch product designer Jo Meesters combined his nostalgia to grandma’s blankets with his idea of supersized items. Clsosing this multidimensional circle, Italian design group Dissociate knitted an conceptual outfit.
Fashionclash aims to create a platform where ‘young’ designers/artists can present their work to a diverse international audience.
