Participants are designers like Aina Seerden, filmmaker Daniel van Hauten, artist Amy Whittle and designers Mandy Roos and Victoria Ledig.  


How can we use fashion to truly connect with our body instead of being just a simple aesthetic of symbolic phenomenon? How can we (re)connect with ourselves and the world through fashion? How can fashion (designer & industry) nowadays truly connect with the body and human-being? With “Sense” Fashionclash puts the focus on the senses and the sensory experience of fashion in a world that dominate the visual sensations. With “Fashion Makes Sense” we want to examine the relationship between fashion and the human body. Fashion as a means to connect yourself to the world and to enrich a bodily experience.
