During the 6th edition of FASHIONCLASH Festival several local designers presented their work. With 'local' we consider designer from the Euregio Meuse Rhein and lot only designer based in the region but also MAFAD academy alumni or designer born and raised in the region.
To strengthen the regional 'fashion' network and community we have initiated FAB Fashion Across Borders two years ago. FAB is a cooperation with Fashion Museum Hasselt and Designmetropole Aachen.
Next to FAB and FASHIONCLASH another important player in MAFAD, Maastricht Academy of Fine Arts and Design. Majority of local designers are MAFAD alumni.
During the 6th edition of the festival MAFAD fashion graduates presented their collections and also the talented 3rd year students (ABOUT 11) where on display in the fashion show programme.
Furthermore it is very important that Maastricht has various academies, such as the renowned Toneelacademie Maastricht (drama school Maastricht). Each edition students and alumni of the drama academy are participating with 'fashion' related performances.
At the moment city of Maastricht is developing a policy around the concept of 'Mode Maastricht' (Fashion Maastricht). We have always believed in Maastricht's potential but it has to be about supporting the new generation of talents. That is the priority.
So, who are the local/regional talents? Here is a brief overview of some of them.
