Our aim is to bring like-minded people together in an inspiring environment and make you aware of who we are and what we do. Everyone who wears clothes is involved with fashion and we want to take you beyond the glamour of the catwalk and help you learn more about fashion in an accessible and fun way. To this end we have compiled a new season of 4 day courses: introduction to the fashion world {Familiar with Fashion} and other fashion events. So do come along for a look, a chat and some refreshments.

Familiar with Fashion
The Amsterdam Fashion Academy is an international, English speaking, top-flight fashion school based in Amsterdam’s museum district. We are more than just a fashion academy providing excellent degree and foundation courses to students. We are also a social hub for the ever growing international community in the Netherlands and we play an important role in bringing people together and letting them enjoy each other’s company while finding out more about the world of fashion. This has led us to compile a short 4 day course: Introduction to the Fashion world, where you can learn in a light-hearted manner more about trend watching, fashion in the media, fashion marketing and promotion, fashion design, fashion textiles, fashion illustration, fashion styling and art history. During our information session on 8th October we will be presenting our course portfolio for the coming year. You don’t have to know much about fashion to participate, that’s our job! Just come along and we will take you beyond the superficial glitz and give you a better understanding of fashion which will enrich your life, how you look at yourself and the world around you. We look forward to meeting you.
