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 second semester of this academic year from February 2017 to June 2017. Please check this calendar regularly since it is updated on a weekly basis.

Our fashion community already has more than 1,500 members, a fantastic and friendly group of fashion aficionados. We have met many of you but sadly have not yet been able to meet or welcome all of you at our academy.

SATURDAY JUNE 3, 2017
meet up – diy upcyling workshop from 2 pm – 4.30 pm
During our DIY upcycling workshop we will teach you how to reshape and customize that old garment into something new and fresh!
Do you have a piece of old clothing that is out of fashion? Do you want to rejuvenate that piece of clothing in the back of the wardrobe? Well why don’t you bring it along to our meet up and explore the possibilities of upcycling your old clothing.
This Saturday afternoon it is all about fixing, creating, colours, pretty things, innovation, sowing, cutting, pimping, glittering, designing or learning any of the latter!
Don’t worry if you think you don’t have any experience. It’s all about individual style and experimentation, no experience required, so come, enjoy the creative fun and help us to show how slow fashion can really make a difference.
For all the people who weren’t able to join our meetups in the evenings, this time we scheduled a meetup on a Saturday afternoon. There will be free drink and nibbles for all who attend and an opportunity to meet and mingle with other likeminded people. Workshop is for free.
