Amsterdam has been heralded as the world capital of denim – people come here from all corners of the earth for inspiration on casual style. In the heart of the city, AMFI has built a reputation for educating students who have over time become the industry’s best. In the spirit of showcasing our accumulated creative ‘jeanius’ and celebrating our talented alumni in this golden age of indigo we present: Masters of Denim.
The photographs have been made by Justine Tjallinks, recognisable by their unique visual style.

Justine graduated from AMFI cum laude in Fashion & Branding in 2010. The portrait series is styled by Lisa Dymph Megens, a Fashion & Branding graduate of 2012.
