For those who missed FASHIONCLASH Maastricht 2012 – the international and interdisciplinary fashion platform for young talents – just scroll down this post for a selection of images spotted over June 8-10 , when the Dutch city of Maastricht turned into one of the most fashionable districts in Europe.
Celebrating the 4th edition, FASHIONCLASH foundation reconfirmed the original purpose:
(…) to create a ‘clash’ with ‘fashion’ as a starting point. By organising fashion projects FASHIONCLASH aims to create a platform where ‘young’ designers/artists can present their work to a diverse international audience. FASHIONCLASH shows fashion in the widest sense of the word. A broad range of disciplines that link to fashion, like photography, fine arts, illustration, video, textile and product design are invited to take part in the projects.

Currently exhibiting at Maison&Objet fair in Paris, Alexa Lixfeld is a Hamburg-based German designer who sometimes loves mixing her design knowledge with fashion. Afterall, she used to be a model herself before graduating at Design Academy of Eindhoven in the Netherlands…
Now she runs a studio where all the production is non-industrial, non-standard, non-exploitative.
Her Spring 2012 collection includes the Cashmere blankets and shawls “manufactured from 100% finest Cashmere, hand woven and individually dyed. As a result, each piece has its own, unique pattern”.
Every single piece of the collection is individually crafted in Nepal and – last but not least- thanks to a cruelty free process: no animals are harmed throughout the whole production.

French artist Daniel Buren, best known for his stripes often integrating in site specific visual and architectural spaces, is the name chosen to sign Hermès new limited edition carres, currently on show at Villa Panza – one of the amazing FAI Fondo Ambiente Italiano‘s properties.
If Hermès is not new at wearable art projects, FAI has always welcome crossing-arts projects. What a perfect partership then for a challenging new exhibition mixing fashion, photography and contemporary art.
A selection of silk printed photo shootings by Daniel Buren, featuring Southern Italy landscapes and corners – from Mediterranean glimpses to baroque domes – all dating back to the 50’s, framed by vertical stripes are the pattern of 365 one-off new Hermès carres.
Among these, 24 are now the core of the exhibition: Photos – Souvenirs au carré Daniel Buren – including also one artist video interview and 39 b/w photos – at Villa Panza’s former mews in Varese.
Villa Panza, Varese, Italy Oct. 21st – Dec. 28th 2011
When you come to Jewellery Design with a strong background in Fine Arts, the result is usually amazing…! And that’s the case of Linnie Mclarty http://www.linniemclarty.com – a UK based designartist – who, besides creating sculptural wearables, works ethically and responsibly.
“She’s one of the first licensees of certified fair-trade, ecological gold, from which 15% of the bullion price is guaranteed to go towards ensuring a fair wage for the miners as well as funding the development of schools, healthcare, fresh water and mid-wives in the mining dependant villages. No chemicals are used in the extraction of the ore, and no child-labour is involved”
Her new works will be on show at London Jewellery Week, the UK’s biggest and brightest jewellery festival opening just Today!

Nora Rochel www.nora-rochel.de is already a name that sounds a bit familiar to DOY’s followers. She is a German jewels & porcelain designer, who has recentely decided to go 100% ethic supporting fairtrade gold and silver: *…Since April 2011, I have been using fair-trade gold and silver from www.ecoandina.org and gemstones of www.brazilgems.de. From now on, all new pieces will be made out of fair-trade materials*
Her new creations will be on show at Eunique Arts and Craft Fair that – with more than 350 exhibitors – is Germany’s largest trade fair for applied arts & design, and represents a superb response to the growing general interest in exceptional products, unique design and small-scale hand-made product series.
