CLASH Project- FASHION FOR NON-FASHION DESIGNERS
The Clash project is now in its 2nd year. In 2010 we again asked 10 people from various disciplines to create an outfit.

The outcome was unpredictable as the brief was left deliberately open.
The only limitation was that the design had to be wearable on the catwalk.

Every participant has an unlikely and unique approach to designing a 'fashion' item, because of their different profession or origin.
This year's outfits have are a wide range of diversity: Dutch Artist Manja Hunger's paper outfit is the colourful highlight within the outfits, British designer Regina Pelszus & artist Sascha Mikloweit used Tyvek to create a wearable bag, German Artist Nicole Michniewski made a voluminous balloon belly, swiss-based Nanouk Schrader lost herself in squares, Polish designer Monika Potrowska's outfit is a tribute to her native country, while Berlin-based graphic designer's clothing seems to be a tribute to the a modern version of virgin Apollonia.

The Maastricht-based performer Karel van Laere and the self-appointed 'creator' Jivan van Ende fooled around with tyribs, Italian design group Dissociate knitted an conceptual outfit, Italian architect Marco Lorusso and graphic designer Britt Helbig literally caged the person in the outfit and Dutch product designer Jo Meesters combined his nostalgia to grandma's blankets with his idea of supersized items.
The purpose of FASHIONCLASH foundation is to create a ‘clash’ with ‘fashion’ as a starting point.

By organising fashion projects FASHIONCLASH aims to create a platform where ‘young’ designers/artists can present their work to a diverse international audience.

FASHIONCLASH shows fashion in the widest sense of the word.
A broad range of disciplines that link to fashion, like photography, fine arts, illustration, video, textile and product design are invited to take part in the projects.

One of the projects where all these goals are coming together is the fashion event ‘FASHIONCLASH Maastricht’ that for the first time took place in the summer of 2009.
