The festival gives them the opportunity to show their work. The works shown, are related through a clear link with fashion such as textile, photography, video, jewellery, performance, dance, accessories etc. The festival programme is accessible for everyone and has become a unique opportunity to discover new talents and get inspired by fashion in the widest sense of the word.
