The Kunsthal exhibition is part of a competition that is organised for fashion- and design students in the slipstream of Rotterdam European Youth Capital 2009 (Your World). The best fashion designs will be selected by a professional jury (including jury member Marianne Verkerk - ‘Hollands Next Top Model'). A shortlist of the exhibition participants will be selected for a Fashion Show in Your Space/ Hilton Hotel Rotterdam and the winner will be rewarded with the WTC Fashion Award (2500 euro).
The goal is to encourage young fashion professionals and to give stage to their talents.
Six participants are selected to exhibit their work in the Kunsthal:
Swinda van Dijk
Itske van Deursen
Ferial de Groot
Hester van der Stoep
Ontfront (Tomas Overtoom and Liza Koifman)
