Fashionclash is an International & Interdisciplinary fashion festival/platform with main focus on young emerging talents. They connects talent, various disciplines, cultures and a broad audience through the annual international fashion festival they organized ‘Fashionclash Maastricht’. 6th Edition is in the making and scheduled for 12 - 15th of June 2014.
The concept of ‘age’ is the theme of the 6th edition of the Fashionclash Festival. "Age is omnipresent in our society. It is a multi-layered concept and widely discussed. It seems that we could debate endlessly what aging means in the 21st century. (...) Have you ever considered, for example, how does your age translate to your actions and the way you express yourself? Often it is claimed that certain designs are representative of a certain age only, but is it really so? Equally, art and design provide a number of means to break down boundaries that are related to the stereotypes concerning age. Fashion is capable of discussing whether certain types of clothes are limited to a specific age or how age can be implemented in design."
