Spot On Fashion Maastricht by FASHIONCLASH

FASHIONCLASH Spot On! ‘Fashion Maastricht’ pop-up exhibition at VVV Maastricht

In the weekend of 28 and 29 November the Dinghuis, historical building in Maastricht known as the VVV Maastricht, temporarily served as a pop-up museum for designers linked to the city of Maastricht.

Continuing the successful 'Fashion Maastricht' in Chengdu China, FASHIONCLASH is presenting the second exhibition focusing on designers that are linked to Maastricht by origin or education.
The presented work stands out for its textile and material research, innovative tailoring or the conceptual approach. This exhibition gives a glimpse of authentic ideas offered by a new generation of visionaries that are shaping the new history of Maastricht, a city with a long tradition of arts and crafts and known for its sense of style, quality of life and dynamic cul- tural scene. Most of the featured designers are alumni of MAFAD, the Maastricht Academy of Fine Arts and Design. Among them you can see pieces of designers that are successfully emerging and work of the latest generation of fashion design graduates.

Participants: Anna Gregor, Bluedenîmes, Danielle Vroemen, Ebby Port, Edmeé Jongen, Gabriel Guevara, Jessie Beurskens, Joelle Boers x Sofya Samareva, Julia Aumann, Julia Schmitz, Marsha Kessels, Maarten van Mulken, Lotte Milder, Linda Friesen, Linda Maissan, Marlou Breuls, Mieke Kockelkorn, Mona Steinhaeusser, Minou Lejeune, Reinder Schmidt, Renate Cuiper, Strikks, Verena Klein and Sem Shayne.

Exhibition is curated by FASHIONCLASH.

Hashtag Smile

Ebby Port represented FASHIONCLASH at FashionPhilosophy Fashion Week Poland in Łódz

Column by Tim Prins (Studio Stad)

After quick check-in at the Double Tree Hilton Hotel Laurens and I dive into the domain of FashionPhilosophy Poland, Łódź. He gives me a quick update on compact communication, show scheduling, media badges and FASHIONCLASH ‘hashtagging'. You know ‘serious stuff’. First show? Here we go.

The music roars. Our stomachs resonate with the heavy bass. Shows are alike and up tempo. The style is hard, almost physical and so are the collections. On the front row we join the experts from Kaltblut Magazine, ModaLisboa and Dash Magazine. For four days we only exist as an audience lingering in between shows, markets, dinners and coffee breaks.

On the second day Ebby Port arrives, FASHIONCLASH’s latest promise. She is invited to show her work. Her designs differ from the masculinity of the Polish trend by being juvenile. In the morning we assist her with the fitting and immerse ourselves in the real life of the show, the reality of the stress, the hard work and not to forget: the excitement.

It is time to choose her models. They stand in line bare and clean. The beauty of youth has such potential. Suddenly fashion revealed its true form, it comes alive.

Only 15 minutes before her show and we are all backstage. Not as experts, but as Marcel, Tiago, Laurens and Tim. We want to feel the anticipation, let it get under our skin. Translators yell, dresses fly and shoes hurt. The final match of clothes is made. Ebby instructs the models: “I want ‘happy’, but not Mariah Carey. Be frisky and enjoy the clothes.”

Her collection doesn’t want to be heavy. Color is not a detail of the designs, but an element worn by the models. The garment is eccentric, but leaves space for character. Green eyes accessorize the look. Slits accentuate the wearer’s flair. Her last piece, a beautiful green dress with silkscreen print, exhibits the strong, voluptuous woman underneath. It all comes together on the catwalk. FashionPhilosophy Fashionweek Poland inhales her work.

She returns with praise, interviews and a future photoshoot. On Facebook Philippe Pourhashemi sums it up nicely: #SMILE.
