From Brazil to Korea and from India to Italy: the first students of the new Master Fashion Enterprise Creation, come from all over the world. Geleyn Meijer (dean FDMCI) welcomed the aspiring entrepreneurs to the University of Applied Sciences last Monday, September the 5th: “It’s a fantastic step you made, and we are proud to have you here”.

Last Friday the students already met each other, the staff, AMFI and the AUAS. In the next two years they will work on their business plan and its implementation the two coming years. Their workplace is “StudioHvA”, a creative hub that offers plenty of room for knowledge sharing and interaction. Interesting detail: the Fashion Enterprise Creation students are the first fulltime master students of the HvA.

The business plans range from nano-technology integrated into fabrics and materials, to the use of artists and performers in the development of collections. During the Master there will be collaborations with real companies and sponsors. The ultimate goal is to establish innovative and profitable businesses.

The students already have clear visions regarding their business plan: An Italian student sees opportunities in innovative fashion, accessible and fitted for every occasion: “I want to make something different but something wearable”.

Apart from their nationality their backgrounds are quite diverse as well: only a few have completed a Bachelor’s degree in the fashion industry. Studies vary from business, communication, marketing and physics to chemistry. With this mix of backgrounds and nationalities there is no doubt that unique projects will originate.

Lisette is a member of the lectorship Fashion Research & Technology and next to her teaching work with students and researchers, leads the coordination of research using 3D body scanning techniques.

Using 3D body scans allows us to virtually model how garments fit and move. Lisette and her team are continuing work to virtually measure and model how the properties of fabric affect the fit of a garment.

Watch the segment starting at 10:00 into the episode.

MOAM Amsterdam, the fashion collective for young talent, developed the Hema holiday collection together with Martijn Nekoui. His team included Joanne de Hoop from the Amsterdam Fashion Institute (HvA).

MOAM Amsterdam x HEMA Wintercollectie 2015

MOAM x Hema collection designers: Joanne de Hoop (AMFI), Christa van der Meer (KABK, Den Haag), Martijn Nekoui, Aniek Zinken (ArtEZ, Arnhem).

‘We hebben goed geluisterd naar de consument,’ zegt Joanne de Hoop (24). ‘Zwart is by far het meest gewild, dus dat werd de basis. Daar hebben we wat warme winterkleuren aan toegevoegd.’ In de rokken en broeken zit verder veel stretch, zodat de knoop niet open hoeft bij het uitbuiken na het kerstdiner. Ook is gekozen voor stoffen die gemakkelijk te wassen zijn. Het vest is prima met een spijkerbroek te combineren, zodat het kledingstuk ook ná kerst nog gedragen kan worden – precies zoals de Hema-vrouw het wenst.

‘We listened to the consumers well’, says Joanne de Hoop (24). ‘Black is by far the most wanted, so that became the basis. We added some warm winter colours to that.’ In the skirts and the trousers there is plenty of stretch, so that after Christmas dinner you won’t need to unbutton. We chose for fabrics that are easy to wash. The sweater is easy to combine with jeans, so you can also wear it after the holidays – just as the Hema-woman likes it.
