I'm super proud & excited to be selected to take part in this year's FASHIONCLASH Festival! The 4-day festival program with Fashion Shows, Exhibitions, Performances, Designer Market, Fashion Talks, Awards and Parties gives more than 150 designers and artists from all over the world the opportunity to show their work to a diverse international audience and industry professionals.
I will be launching my very 1st collection of printed silk scarves at the FASHIONCLASH Festival Designer Market. Very exciting! The first scarf samples are being produced as we speak. In the next couple of months I'll be keeping you posted about the process, so stay tuned. My online shop will launch around the same time, so please subscribe to the newsletter (on the right) to get first access and special discounts.

The 8th edition of the festival is curated around the theme of HERITAGE, consisting of a theme related and general programme. The festival is a reflection of what is going on within the international fashion scene in the new generation of designers; imagination of the zeitgeist of contemporary fashion design through the eyes of the new generation of designers and artists. FASHIONCLASH Festival is a unique opportunity to discover new talent and to get inspired by the art of fashion.
FASHIONCLASH believes that the art of fashion can stimulate critical debate about controversial issues in our society. By researching and questioning ‘fashion’ we learn to understand the psychology of human behaviour and its role in undermining stereotypes. The central question being asked, “How can we develop the fashion industry to improve well-being and equality?”. With themes such as “Age / Art of Aging” (FCF 2014), “Gender” (FCF 2015) and “Heritage” (FCF 2016) we create narratives that rise above the superficial definition of the word “Fashion”.
FASHIONCLASH Festival is accessible to everyone. Most of the program is accessible for free, to attend the Fashion Shows there is a ticket sale starting beginning of May.
The international and interdisciplinary fashion festival takes place June 30 – July 3 in Maastricht (The Netherlands).
