Vanessa Counaert and Cédric Vanhoeck with the award
On March the 20th, Resortecs has been awarded with its Smart Stitch Innovation. The Co-Founder from Resortecs, Cédric Vanhoeck was a participant at the FASHIONCLASH Festival 2017.

The Global Change Award is an innovation challenge initiated by the non-profit H&M Foundation. The Global Change Award is one of the world’s biggest challenges for early stage innovation and the first such initiative in the fashion industry. 

Cédric Vanhoeck says about the award: ‘’thanks to this award, we’ll get additional means to evolve our first working prototype to the next level. We are now just a stitch away from conscious fashion!’’

As 1 of the 5 winners of the prestigious Global Change Award, we are looking forward to the global accelerator program together with H&M Foundation, KTH Innovation, Accenture and Fjord.

The Resortecs shoe
The Resortecs stitching is engineered to enable labour-poor and cost efficient disassembly of products into reusable product components as apposed to a mix of shredded material. Resortecs is working on a fully dismantle-able and therefore recyclable shoe. The shoe will be named JOAN – the most circular shoe.

MOAM collective international

Thursday evening 8 March 2018 MOAM collective international powered by Zalando showed her first international collection. 
The runway show took place in a monumental canal house at the Herengracht in Amsterdam. 

The 450 invitees, including the (international) coaches, press and VIP’s, were divided over eight rooms, each room named after one of the cities where the designers were graduated. Iconic supermodel Pat Cleveland and her daughter Anna Cleveland walked the show. Besides being an inspiration to the designers, they embody MOAM’s credo: connecting young talent to iconic names from the fashion industry. 

Martijn Nekoui about the show: 

“Working together with Frans Ankoné on this very first international MOAM-project has been a dream come true. We’re super proud of this collection and the new generation of MOAM designers.”

Rita Sá - Sangue Novo FASHIONCLASH winner

Rita Sá is the winner of Sangue Novo / FASHIONCLASH Festival Award at ModaLisboa - Lisbon Fashion Week.

She will join  Filipe Augusto (winner of October 2017 edition) and present her collection at Fashion My Religion! the 10th edition of FASHIONCLASH Festival, June 15-17.


“If you have a glass ceiling, don´t throw rocks in the air” is the motto for the collection “Telhados de Vidro”, which describes the game played by those who desperately try to be something they are not; masked hypocrites who feel the need of ostentation in a “make-believe” world. Attacking others for problems that they also have, the individuals who make the collection choose to believe that it is better to be a false somebody than a real nobody.

Forming a grading concept from the first to the last look, the collection presents its first individual who seems to be impervious to anything around him and not afraid of showing he is vulnerable or weak. The second individual is clearly uncomfortable with this idea and tries his best to show his superiority, even if it means trying to be someone who is not.

From this point on, every individual tries to impose his superiority upon his predecessor, trying hard to hide all his/her weaknesses in an illusion game where nothing is what it seems to be, manipulating the truth and revealing only what is pleasant to the eye.
However, what is shown has no real utility and therefore is essentially futile. As we continue, there seems to be a lot of difficulties in controlling the flamboyance created within these individuals and as a result, instead of matching the silhouettes continuous growth, they drop suddenly. New volumes are now supported by small details that still prevail and the vulnerabilities that were hidden until now are completely exposed. The blue colour in the collection references the use of plastic bags, creating the idea of something that is disposable.
