FASHIONCLASH presents Fashion My Religion! the 10th edition of the international & interdisciplinary fashion festival in Maastricht.

 

During this three-day festival over more than 100 emerging designers and (performing)artists from all over the world get the opportunity to show their work to a diverse, international audience. The program contains fashion shows, theatre and dance performances, awards and in context of the theme and 10th anniversary a 3-day program The Route will be curated: an inspiring pilgrimage past exhibitions, fashion talks, performances in the fashion city of Maastricht.

 

Specially for this edition several theme related projects will be presented such as ‘God is a Woman’ project, KOORKAPPEN Project (choir robes project), ICONS project and CLASH Project. In this projects designers and artists are invited to create new work and express their visions on ‘Fashion My Religion’.

 

The overarching theme of the festival is “Fashion My Religion!” (read ‘fashion’ as a verb), addressing one of the most current themes of the moment: religion. In particular pointing out to faith in relation to gender, sartorial matters and lifestyle. FASHIONCLASH challenges participants and visitors to investigate, expose or break through existing religious traditions and taboos through fashion. An apple to activism that hopefully inspires a new generation of fashion makers and fashion lovers to fulfill their own role within the society as meaningfully as possible. “Fashion My Religion!” places the designers, the industry and the audience in a clashing field; fashion vs religion or in other words, modernity and tradition. Can we rethink the way we see the values, norms and rules related to religions and create a more inclusive world, without proclaiming a value about religion?
