FASHIONCLASH is an international fashion platform for the new generation of designers. Its goal is to connect developing gifted people from different arts and cultures. It has been cooperating with DSM since 2014 when it introduced itself by means of its own selection of young Dutch with a flair for fashion design. Conversely, Czech designers well represented their work at the Maastricht festival in June 2015.

The theme of this year of the FASHIONCLASH festival has been Gender. Men’s and unisex collections were strongly represented in the fashion shows portfolio, male and unisex models walked the catwalk. Men’s fashion has so far been on the sidetrack in the Czech fashion arena. DSM curators thus let themselves inspired and invited men’s fashion designers Jivika Biervliet and Dusty Thomas to Prague. Manon Boertien will accompany them with her dream women’s cloth collection.

Who will be the Czech designer approached by FASHIONCLASH curators Nawie Kuiper and Branko Popovic for 2016?
