fashion fest

Weekend of Global Cultures is a platform to showcase new works created by creative artistes (dancers, musicians, choreographers, writers) inspired by the collections of the NMVW around the theme of Belonging.

The 2016 fashion fest was a co-creation between MAFB and the Research Center for Material Culture – of the Tropenmuseum, Afrika Museum and Museum Volkenkunde. The fashion fest staged a battlefield for creativity and accommodated 62 talents between 18 and 40 years old that operated within the following disciplines: fashion design, hairstyling, make-up and modelling.

This year's theme was: Fashion then and now: Intercultural inspiration’.
