Fashionclash is founded in 2009 by a couple of friends and designers passionate about creating a fashion platform for young ‘fashion’ talents. The aim of Fashionclash, is to create a clash with fashion as a starting point. ‘Clash’ stands for an inspiring encounter of different designers, disciplines, cultures and audiences. The company aims to present fashion in relation to a broad range of disciplines linked to fashion. With this concept as a starting point, Fashionclash initiates and organizes interdisciplinary projects and events. One of the projects is the international fashion event Fashionclash Maastricht’. The event has become a unique platform for upcoming national and international talents. Since 2006 over 600 talents coming from 30 different countries have joined the event.
