FASHIONCLASH Maastricht 2011
This was the third edition of FASHIONCLASH Maastricht!
Last weekend in Maastricht was all about FASHIONCLASH event!
What began three years ago as a spontaneous dream of initiators to be able to show their own work has now become an international platform for young talent. SAMdecorfabriek, new location was a perfect location for this edition. Audience and participants responded very surprised.
The third edition of the international fashion event FASHIONCLASH Maastricht was successful. Sold out shows, international audience, and plenty of talent in many reactions such as 'inspiring' and 'surprising'.
The event opened Friday evening with the Fashion Procession project, which one-week in advance already walked through the streets of Maastricht. Especially for the opening the Toni and Guy hairstylists created miters. M.A.C Cosmetics again created stunning looks. FASHIONCLASH looks back on three years successful partnership with the wonderful team at MAC Cosmetics.
Again, the Clash Project premiered with some spectacular moments such as the creation of Niek Pulles, Valentin Loellmann and closing "pie" outfit of Sue Doeksen.
