Faith

Visuals are being looked upon as if they were icons. Images have become the symbols of our current era, increasing their influence tremendously. Living in uncertain times, with no idea of what the future holds for us, we need to start believing again. Introducing you to “Faith”, Fashion & Visual Culture x byAMFI invites you to challenge your own perception of believing and to rediscover faith in yourself and in the world through photography and the process from idea to image.

byAMFI Cutting Blue - April 2014_beeldamfiNL-final small

CUTTING BLUE

Localized food trends seem to concern more people nowadays. Why do we all emphasize on eating healthily, but still close our eyes to wearing healthily? The denim industry today is not any different from the fast consuming meat industry; yet still our hunger for fast denim is increasing.

byAMFI welcomes you to Cutting Blue, a local denim butcher. We want to make you aware of where your denim comes from, how it is produced and what ingredients it contains. As denim lovers, we can make the choice to buy healthy denim, creating an understanding that choosing healthy doesn’t only apply to what you eat, but also to what you wear.

Individuals SSBY21-2

SSby21 showroom

S/S14BY21iNDiViDUALS rediscovers the boundaries of individual freedom. Each individual takes his own path. We accept the struggle we face. We try, we fail, we try harder; we grow stronger. In the collection every individual of this generation is accentuated trough special dyeing and painting techniques. We are breaking new ground.

Curio Stories current concept

Curio Stories

Our hunger for inspiration causes us to fill the byAMFI store with infinite treasures; a collection of meaningful objects, snapshots of people’s lives, eccentricities and joyful experiences. Art is mixed with science, old with new, man-made with natural.

byAMFI invites you to our contemporary cabinet of curiosities that is full of remarkable objects we borrowed from dear friends and colleagues. You can purchase items of designers still undiscovered and get inspired by the extraordinary work of Cora Verhoog, Ineke Vijn, and Idiots.

ELEMENT-concept

ELEMENT showroom

The current concept of byAMFI focuses on iNDiViDUALS’ latest collection ELEMENT, presented at the Opening night of Amsterdam Fashion Week. Even though it’s a showroom, visitors can see, feel and try on the collection before it will go into production. Quite a unique experience! At the same time samples of last year’s collection DUALS are on sale at byAMFI.

The Incubator

The Incubator

The Incubator concept is about the mysterious and inspiring world of  future fashion; exploring smart fibers and fabrics and the influence of technology on fashion.

First of August

First of August

byAMFI meets the world of First of August (FoA), a blog created by Karlijn Boersma on August 1st, 2010. First of August is raw documentation of artistic life. Karlijn Boersma searches for the true identity of individuals based on their interest and activities.

TIGER

TIGER DRAGON SLAYERS from the Underworld

ANT-overview-store

ANT fashion magazine

ANT fashion magazine celebrates personal passions of creative talents and features the pleasantly obsessed. ANT fashion magazine focuses on the international fashion scene and devotees of independent fashion magazines worldwide. A world of creative talent and their slightly neurotic urge of creating is being examined

10x10

10×10

iNDiViDUALS opens Fashion Week Downtown, the public programme of the Amsterdam Fashion Week, with the installation ’10×10′, based on ten iconic elements that characterize the brand.

divine madness

Devine Madness

Strong opposites dominate this concept. Each image tells a different story; divine butterflies, raw meat elevated into jewellery, pressed fruit on a tender girl’s face and elegant moss growing out of a pair of trousers. All images are created byAMFI students following the Fashion & Visual Culture programme; exploring the boundaries of fashion photography.

souvenir

Souvenir

Souvenir brings back to childhood memories. The concept is inspired by Martine Johanna’s art and current illustrations. Symbols and organic shapes, but also fashion and art, the planet, life, love and death, are sources of inspiration to Martine Johanna, also teaching at AMFI.

odd

ODD Magazine

Odd is a personal magazine that focuses on the lives of international fashion professionals. Based on the six degrees of separation theory, the magazine explores six connections between seven people’s lives and styles. These seven key people are the core for a magazine about fashion and photography inspired by personal stories about creative life –  in a little bit of an odd style.

The store

The STORE

THE STORE W10,40m x L11,25m x H2,96m, four walls, floor and a ceiling, 35m3 filled with oxygen and dreams. THE STORE grasps things people love and puts them together in the net of its concepts. THE STORE thinks in colours that don’t yet exist, and creates forms that don’t limit.

somedreamof

SOME DREAM OF RUNNING AWAY

Ever dreamt of running away to the circus? The iNDiViDUALS Spring/Summer 2011 collection is all about capturing the essence of lightness. A sensation of being launched from a cloud-high trapeze. Finding safety in dangerous altitudes, while leaving all inhibitions behind. For a moment everything is possible.

satara

Satara/Groeikas

During the first period the sustainable fashion label and non-profit organisation Satara is the main focus of this concept. Satara stimulates underprivileged women in India to become socially and financially independent. The collection of Satara is designed by Design graduates Lotte Biermasz, Sofie Claes and Tuija Mantyla. In the second period the concept evolves into ‘Groeikas’ in which collaborations and sustainability come together. The interior and assortment keep growing constantly.

peek a blue

Peek-A-Blue Peek

A Blue creates an environment in which indigo gives a surreal feeling to the world of an inspired fashion student. A shaped student room with endless incentives and surprises; a room which breaths passion and energy. The creation of jeans products with each its own story. Think of one-of-a-kind jeans designed by AMFI students and jewellery inspired by jeans.
