New Fashion Narratives at the 14th edition of FASHIONCLASH Festival
A review part 1 – The 14th edition of the international and interdisciplinary FASHIONCLASH Festival took place from 25 – 27 November 2022 in Maastricht (The Netherlands).And it was nice to come home and see the future of fashion and art.
During this three-day hybrid (on- & offline program) festival, a new generation of designers and performing artists from all over the world are given the opportunity to show their work to a broad (inter)national audience. My favourite part of the outstanding event was: the New Fashion Narratives exhibitions.
New Fashion Narratives #1 An exhibition curated by Glamcult and FASHIONCLASH
The New Fashion Narratives exhibition at Bureau Europa is an international selection of designers curated by FASHIONCLASH in collaboration with Glamcult, a progressive fashion, art and music platform from the Netherlands.
New Fashion Narratives stands for the current generation of designers and artists who see fashion as their mission. They explore the boundaries of their discipline, question social systems and specifically the fashion industry. With their works, they move between the interdisciplinary domains of fashion, social design, and visual arts and investigate the relationship with the user/consumer.
This exhibition program introduces contemporary themes and innovative projects, creating and showing new narratives for fashion.
Participants: Art Collective BCHMNN, Mehdi Mashayekhi, LABELEDBY., OUR SHIFT, Aurélie Defez, DOMINIK, Dara Benno, SUFI, Pablo Salvador Willemars, ZOLI, Denzel Veerkamp, Luca Berger, House of rubber, SCHEPERS BOSMAN
The New Fashion Narratives exhibition at Marres consists of a multidisciplinary selection of both young and established talent with a link to the Netherlands.
FASHIONCLASH signals a growing need among Dutch designers to contribute to a healthier fashion sector and a better world. This critical, research-minded and hybrid generation of fashion makers engage themselves in the transformative role of fashion in relation to social issues and propose alternative fashion practices and narratives.
Participants: Teresa van Twuijver & Studio de Maan, Extended, Lena Winterink, Bobbine Berden Design, Wei-Chi Su, Antoine Peters, Space For Fiction (SFF), Guerline Kamp, Atelier Dasha Tsapenko
