Amsterdam Fashion Academy is more than a top-flight fashion school. It has consciously chosen to be a hub of small-scale, personal, student-centred learning in a supportive environment. Not just for our full-time students but also for anyone interested in fashion who wants to broaden and deepen their knowledge. Whether you choose to attend a part-time course, short course or if you just want to attend a free MEETUP. You’re more than welcome.
In the calendar below you can find all the activities planned to take place at in the first semester of this academic year 2018-2019. Please check this calendar regularly since it is updated on a weekly basis.
Meetup + Fashion Exhibition
FASHION EXHIBITION AND MEETUP UNLEARNING TO LEARN: BUILD A BRAND NOT THAT IS FUTURE PROOF.
13th of December, 2018
6:00pm – 9:00 pm
The Amsterdam Fashion Academy is happy to invite you to visit its first world-inspired fashion exhibition on Thursday, the 13th of December 2018 from 6:00pm to 9:00pm. Simultaneously, a lecture about branding will be offered by the creative boutique agency Mamma Soup.
The exhibition and the lecture will be open to the public with no cost. Visitors will have the opportunity to meet students and lectures, beside exploring the works that the talented students have created during the last three months as part of the BA (Hons) Fashion Design, Fashion Foundation Diploma and Fast-Track Fashion Design & Business course.
23 students, coming from all corners of the world, chose to continue their studies and to gain professional skills in this private international fashion school situated in the heart of Amsterdam. The exhibition will include several pieces, such as jackets realised by the second-year BA (Hons) Fashion Design students, two dresses created by Emma and inspired by her childhood in Shanghai, two clothes by Tiffany, from Tokyo, inspired by a Parisian love story, a piece by Zhinia inspired by Iranian craftmanship and a piece from Olivia’s feminine collection inspired by Spanish culture and storytelling, among others.
We are programmed into a society of rights and wrongs. This directs us to make decisions and/or shy away from ideas constantly. This session will get you to challenge some ‘facts’ and opinions so you can get better at developing and creating communications and brands. Forget about the codes and rules and how things should be. Join us in order to know more and build a brand now that is future proof.
