In 2018 State of Fashion joined forces with fashion platforms FASHIONCLASH and M-ODE for Taskforce Fashion, commissioned by the Creative Industries Fund NL. In co-creation with Dutch fashion talent and in dialogue with other industries and sectors, we investigate the transformative role of fashion in relation to social challenges. The first pilot - Fashion after Flood - was financially supported by, among others, the municipalities of Arnhem, Amsterdam and Maastricht, and Waternet and the Rijn & IJssel water board. In 2020 we started a second experiment, Residency for Responsible Fashion, in collaboration with the municipalities of Maastricht, Rotterdam and Tilburg.
State of Fashion is the secretary of this fashion coalition.
