The Fashion Dialogue: 
a CLASH of VALUES

SUNDAY 17 JUNE 2018 | 2:00 - 3:30 PM
LAB-GEBOUW | MAASTRICHT

Free admission. Registration necessary >

# NOTE 16 June: Please know seat availability is limited and we have almost reached our maximum capacity. We will do our utmost best to include as many people as possible (who have not registered yet).

Join us and our internationally-renowned guests José Teunissen, Adam Peacock, Dai Rees, Ben Wubs, Mariangela Lavanga, Maaike de Haardt & Susanne Vegter during this unique conversation about the current and future role that fashion plays in individuals' lives, our society and today's economy.

The Fashion Dialogue is part of [re]Framework of MIND FASHION in collaboration with FASHIONCLASH and takes place during the 10th edition of FASHIONCLASH Festival 'Fashion My Religion' (15 - 17 June 2018, Maastricht).

I am, therefore I wear

Scepticism and optimism intermingle in our communication and social interactions with each other and the surrounding world. Boundaries between technology and human experience are blurring, and there is no longer a one-size-fits-all approach to understand or predict why and how people act, believe or dress the way they do. Within this complex and transforming world it seems more pertinent than ever that fashion is placed in a context that forces you to question its true value. Therefore, The Fashion Dialogue will challenge, cross, connect and rewrite borders, systems, disciplines, definitions and beliefs, revealing a Fashion DNA that is made out of more than threads of fabrics. The conversation aims to address that fashion exists beyond static garments, catwalks, labels, stores and closets. 

Take part and discuss together with us the values behind the clothes we design, produce, wear and dispose of. Make sure you register on time as there are limited seats available!

Revealing the values
behind the clothes [we wear].

The Fashion Dialogue offers the stage to a multi-disciplinary [re]framework and voice for fashion by opening up a dialogue between experts in - among others - Fashion Design & Technology, Cultural Economics, Arts, Religion, Business History, Higher Education, and the Fashion Industry. 

Different visions, different values, different systems, different questions; will they clash or are we [humans] searching for the same solutions and like-minded answers?
