H+F Fashion Award

The H+F Fashion Award is given every two years to the most promising designer working at the boundary of fashion and art.

The award is linked to H+F Fashion on the Edge, a project to collect fashion that borders on art, which was founded in 2006 by Han Nefkens with the Centraal Museum Utrecht. An overview exhibition on the same theme, The Art of Fashion, is being assembled for the Museum Boijmans Van Beuningen in Rotterdam.
Judith Clark, a curator and researcher at the London College of Fashion, and José Teunissen, a fashion design lecturer at ArtEZ, work with Nefkens on the H+F Award and H+F Fashion on the Edge.

Han Nefkens
Writer Han Nefkens, born in 1954 in Rotterdam, began to amass a collection of international contemporary art in 2000. His own life and development are decisive factors in the choices he makes as a collector. Because Nefkens seeks to share his vision with a larger audience, almost all his acquisitions are housed immediately after purchase in various Dutch museums, where they will continue to be cared for.
