ModaLisboa - Lisboa Fashion Week - Boundless

ModaLisboa - Lisboa Fashion Week - Boundless edition took place from 9 - 12 March.

Sangue Novo (New Blood) is a platform for young Portuguese designers who get the opportunity to show their work within a collective fashion show. Eight Portuguese designers where selected to show their collections. At the end of the show several awards are presented.
Winner of Sangue Novo/FASHIONCLASH Prize this edition was Rita Afonso, who convinced with her relevant story and playful collection 'I AM A VASE, BUT I SCREAM'.

"The collection “I am a vase, but I scream” intends to pay homage to all women in history that had to use their voices and scream for their rights. Specially those that wanted to be artists and were only allowed to practice the so called minor arts. 
 Clarisse Lispector once said: "If I have to be an object, let me be one that screams". The collection screams for the still nature paintings, the weaving art and for all the fruits and vases that replaced the breasts, the legs and the naked bodies of the major arts."

João Oliveira won the ModaLisboa prize. He was the winner of FASHIONCLASH prize during October 2016 edition. With his innovative new collection 'Society' he show great potential.
“Society” explores the conduct of individuals in the most varied contemporary landscapes, facing the technological audacity. The collection interprets the historic and the emotional charge behind each provided feedback – support, heaviness, indifference and attachment. The oversized silhouette is an analogy of the journey and a metaphor for the accrued burden. And the layering breaks down the topic elements: the road, the people and their attitude. “Society” combines a streetwear approach with details influenced by workwear. 

As part of their prize, both Rita Afonso and João Oliveira will show their collection during FASHIONCLASH Festival 2017.

Other talented designers who presented their collection where Carolina Machado, Liliana Afonso, Rita Carvalho, Micaela Sapinho, Alexandre Pereira and Mariana Laurência.

Furthermore during ModaLisboa, there where shows from emerging and established designers such as Nuno Gama, Away to Mars, David Ferreira, Ricardo Andrez, Duarte, Valentim Quaresma and Patrick de Padua.

Collaborative Unit Project: Introducing Isabelle Violet Thibault & Eleftheria Karipidi

BLOG #2: Introducing Isabelle Violet Thibault & Eleftheria Karipidi


FASHIONCLASH in collaboration with students of University of the Arts London (UAL) – London College of Fashion

During the Collaborative Unit Project (February – June 2017) FASHIONCLASH works closely with students of the University of the Arts London (UAL), London College of Fashion on the topic ‘Fashion makes Sense’, this year’s FASHIONCLASH Festival theme. Students Caroline Zaidan, Isabelle Violet Thibault, Susanne James and Eleftheria Karipidi are challenged to research the engagement between fashion and the body/senses and they need to engage with the public on the issue: How can fashion (designers, consumers, and the industry) nowadays truly connect with the body and human beings instead of being just a simple aesthetic of a symbolic phenomenon?

Martijn van Strien, Post Couture Collective

Jeffrey Heiligers
How do designers nowadays experience the connection between the body and the design process? Are designers aware of the importance of the senses and emotions in the way people dress, and how they attach value and significance to clothing?
As part of the ‘Fashion makes Sense’ research Dutch designers Martijn van Strien and Jeffrey Heiligers are interviewed by the students to gain insight on the ‘designer’ point of view on this subject.
How are they thinking about the body while they are designing? What is their design approach in terms of the body shape and size? And how do they approach the emotional and sensory experiences of the body and clothes?

We will of course keep you posted on the outcome. 
Now it’s time to meet team members Isabelle and Eleftheria!

Modetopstukken in de OBA Liefhebbers van fashion, kostuum en accessoires opgelet: ter inspiratie, ter informatie, om te genieten en om je te stimuleren om zelf aan de slag te gaan om iets te maken is van 17 maart t/m 31 mei 2017 Modemuze te gast in de OBA. Een tentoonstelling mét een uitgebreid en divers programma. De nieuwe tentoonstelling Modemuze@OBA opent donderdag 16 maart de deuren in de Centrale OBA.

Modemuze brengt pareltjes van kostuums en accessoires uit het hele land samen in Amsterdam. Maar liefst twaalf Nederlandse musea openden hun depots en presenteren zowel historische kleding als wel hedendaagse outfits van jonge ontwerpers.
Van een loodzware Fong Leng-jurk tot een achttiende-eeuwse tas: op de tentoonstelling Modemuze@OBA hangen en liggen de meest uiteenlopende kledingstukken en accessoires uit musea als het Amsterdam Museum, Centraal Museum Utrecht en Paleis Het Loo.

Unieke kans
De tentoonstelling is ingericht door Modemuze; het online platform voor mode- en vier eeuwen kostuumgeschiedenis. Projectleider Mila Ernst vindt de tentoonstelling een buitenkans voor de echte modeliefhebber: "Textielcollecties kun je niet permanent exposeren. Door licht beschadigen de stukken snel. Maar voor deze tentoonstelling openen de diverse musea wel hun depots voor publiek. Eeuwenoude modecollecties en eigentijdse outfits zijn nu van dichtbij te bekijken. Van theatercollecties van Shakespeare tot een bijzondere tas uit het depot van Tassenmuseum Hendrikje."


www.modemuze.nl is een initiatief van het Amsterdam Museum, Centraal Museum Utrecht, Fries Museum Leeuwarden, Gemeentemuseum Den Haag, Museum Rotterdam, Paleis het Loo en het Rijksmuseum Amsterdam. Nieuwe partners die zich hebben aangesloten zijn: Tassenmuseum Hendrikje, Textielmuseum Tilburg, het Nationaal Museum van Wereldculturen, Nederlands Openluchtmuseum en de Theatercollectie Bijzondere Collecties UvA.


“FASHIONCLASH 2017: Future of Fashion” 

24 March – 23 April 2017, in Chengdu, China

In March and April of this year, Maastricht-based interdisciplinary fashion platform FASHIONCLASH, jointly with Chinese partners Punch Me, Cross Lab and Dutch-Chinese organization About Asia will introduce “FASHIONCLASH 2017: Future of Fashion” in Chengdu.
After a successful first exhibition of FASHIONCLASH in China (2015), as part of an exchange programme between the cities of Maastricht (Netherlands) and Chengdu (Sichuan, China), FASHIONCLASH now presents a larger, more comprehensive, and complete story at the newly opened “Future Center” in downtown Chengdu from 24 March until 23 April.

‘Future of Fashion’ is a multidisciplinary exhibition composed out of work of more than 30 emerging designers and artists from The Netherlands and Flanders. The exhibition represents a broad spectrum of fashion design aesthetics, visions and various approaches to fashion. The presented work stands out for its concept, experimental material and textile, innovative shapes and tailoring. In addition to fashion the exhibition features screenings of interdisciplinary fashion films and performances. Among the participants there are award winning designers like Marlou Breuls and Nikki Duijst, avant-garde designers’ collective Das Leben Am Haverkamp and promising theatre makers like Lotte Milder and Milou van Duijnhoven. The selection of participants is an eclectic mix of designers that graduated from the top schools such as AMFI, ArtEZ Arnhem, MAFAD, KABK, Royal Academy of Fine Arts Antwerp and Theatre Academy Maastricht.
FASHIONCLASH gathered a team of theatre performers that will bring the exhibition alive. Studio Dennis Vanderbroeck created an overall concept that serves as a platform to connect the physical space of the exhibition with performance space and engage interactions with the audience.

In collaboration with the Chinese cultural initiative Punch Group and their cultural festival “PunchMe Art Festival”, FASHIONCLASH meets west China for the second time. The exhibition will be staged in ‘Future Center’, an unfinished raw space within a building that perfectly fits the spirit of the new generation designers and artists who are redefining the future with their visions. ‘Future of Fashion’ creations will temporarily find their home in this space and inspire the audience of the potential that lays ahead. Anything is possible! Like in a labyrinth FASHIONCLASH invites visitors to wander and get lost in imagination of the future fashion makers. The Chinese showcases of FASHIONCLASH are developed and initiated in close collaboration with About Asia; a Dutch-Chinese promoter of cultural and creative industries in west China.
