Fashion My Religion
Prior to the panel discussion, Prof. Maaike de Haardt will put the spotlight on the interaction between religion, culture and gender, addressing to what extent religious or spiritual motives, questions and dimensions can be recognised in human activities and forms of expression (from cooking to fashion). 

The Validation Junky
Artist, designer and consultant Adam Peacock will elaborate more on his vision behind The Validation Junky, an experimental lens upon the complexities of contemporary digital consumer culture, underlining also that it is possible to design products and services within a commercial realm that celebrate identity, not diminish it.

FASHIONCLASH Festival 2018

The Fashion Dialogue is part of FASHIONCLASH Festival 2018 - 'Fashion my Religion', that takes place from 15 - 17 June in Maastricht. During the three-day festival more than 150 promising designers, (performing) artists will present their work. With the 10th anniversary of the festival, FASHIONCLASH aims to empower, use and celebrate the strength of fashion by sending out the message to ,designers, the industry and the audience to look at the immaterial value of fashion as an artistic discipline. To use fashion as an instrument to contribute in the debates related to ecological, human- and social issues in our society. Fashion as a second skin tells your environment what relationship you want to have with it and simultaneously shows you what your heart beats for.

“Everyone is an icon – that reflects the divine in you. You are an incarnation, bringing divine into the material world.”
