fashion fest 2019 x Museum Van Loon


‘Follow the Legacy’

This is how and why you sign up

We from fashion fest really want to invest in young upcoming talents and be able to give them the tools they need and deserve, to grow into a professional entrepreneur. Therefore all upcoming talents are expected to invest in themselves. MAFB, Museum Van Loon and leading international players will do the rest.

The required fee will contribute towards a masterclass session, catwalk training, private depot tours in Museum Van Loon and for the presentation during the catwalk final December 7 in Museum Van Loon. Throughout this process all upcoming talents will be carefully monitored and will be guided to get the most out of the collection, catwalk, hair and make-up visibility. Normally a similar catwalk show would cost around the 20.000 euro due to the necessary facilities such as the location, décor, music, seating plan, coaching, technical team, production team and what else is necessary to make your catwalk to a success.
