FASHIONCLASH - clash project 2016

Fashionshow will be held at the:
SAM-Décorfabriek, situated at the Meerssenerweg 215, Maastricht
The Clash Project show starts at 22:00.


Since the beginning of Fashionclash in 2009, Clash Project each year invites 10 young artists and designers to translate their work into a wearable piece for the catwalk. Participants from different art and design disciplines are challenged to transfer their practice, both materially and conceptually, to a different medium. It is an invitation to come out of the comfort zone, to play and experiment.

Confronting us with the 'vegetal otherness' that we are used living with and at the same time hold a distance to.

Autumn symposium Textielcommissie: Le*der

During the Autumn symposium of the Textielcommissie at the 'Rijksdienst voor Cultureel Erfgoed' I give a lecture about my vegetal tanning project.

"Of het gaat om ganzenleer, vissenleer, hertenleer, koeienmaag, of ‘gewoon’ leer van het varken of rund, vanwege zijn duurzaamheid staat leer volop in de belangstelling. Het veelzijdige karakter van leer maakt dat designers en kunstenaars de onbegrensde mogelijkheden van leer exploreren en laten zien welke prachtige producten ermee te vervaardigen zijn. Op 12 november 2015 besteedt de aandacht aan de diversiteit van leer, de bewerking ervan en de toepassing in kleding, accessoires en interieur."
