The 9th edition of FASHIONCLASH Festival took place earlier this month in Maastricht with over 150 emerging designers presented.

The unique four-day fashion festival (June 29 – July 2) exceeded all expectations with the unique works of over 150 young designers and artists from all over the world.

An international audience was treated with extraordinary fashion shows, crossover theatre and dance performances, the Clash Project and the Fashion Makes Sense LAB especially composed for this edition. This LAB included expositions, a designer market, workshops and fashion talks. Moreover, the long expected opening of the new incubator, the Forza Fashion House Maastricht was a part of this year’s edition.

FASHIONCLASH Festival provided a unique opportunity to stimulate your senses, to get inspired by the world of fashion, to meet new upcoming international fashion talents and obviously to enjoy the fashion city of Maastricht.
