Fashion Summer Courses
Is your future in fashion? Find out by joining one of our 2-week summer-school fashion courses and change your life. Get a taste of fashion and create your own fashion portfolio in 2 weeks.
If we will evaluate your portfolio as exceptional, we will offer you a place into our Foundation Diploma in Fashion or a BA (Hons) degree for September 2025 and you will by-pass the admission procedures. This only applies to the Fashion Design Portfolio Development summer course and the Fashion Business Portfolio Development summer course.
You already have a passion for fashion and now you can go beyond the glamour and discover what fashion really means to you. These step-by-step courses will ease you gently into the world of Fashion Design and Fashion Business. Both overlapping and hands-on, you will meet other like-minded young fashion enthusiasts so you can share and inspire each other.
Both courses include an introduction to the fashion industry with key professional insights. Our experienced teaching staff will help you tap into your creativity and give you plenty practical know-how to design, develop and showcase your creativity in your own capsule collection. In Fashion Design the emphasis is on illustration, design and textiles with a follow-up pattern cutting option.
If you would rather combine creative flair with business sense then the Fashion Business course will immerse you in the worlds of marketing strategy, branding, styling (including a professional photoshoot) and communication including social media plans.
We also offer a 2-week course in Sustainable Pattern Cutting & Construction that can be taken alone or in combination with the Fashion Design Portfolio Development summer course or the Fashion Business Portfolio Development summer course.
Classes are small, personal and in English. Hallmarks of our innovative and friendly Amsterdam Fashion Academy.
