AMFI is the largest fashion institute in the Netherlands, with our team of 100 expert fashion lecturers, we coach over 1250 students each year on all aspects of fashion. We guide students to become changemakers who actively contribute to necessary changes in different disciplines in the fashion ecosystem by responsibly connecting industry and user needs at various levels. AMFI is the only fashion institute in the Netherlands that covers the entire fashion chain.
AMFI offers a future-oriented curriculum with three graduation specialisations: Fashion & Branding, Fashion & Business and Development and Fashion & Design. These graduation specialisations represent the three main departments within the fashion business. But they do not stand alone. AMFI distinguishes itself through an interdisciplinary approach, that is part of the curriculum. During the interdisciplinary study programs, students from the various graduation specialisations work together from a shared knowledge foundation to develop entrepreneurial skills and ditto attitude.
Located in the heart of the creative capital Amsterdam, AMFI is part of the Faculty of Digital Media and Creative Industries. With an educational focus on digitalisation, sustainability and inclusivity, AMFI is at the forefront of digital fashion design and sustainable, inclusive fashion. The Amsterdam metropolitan region supports circular system change in the textile sector and encourages various initiatives aimed at establishing new fashion ecosystems in consultation with industry, government and education. AMFI is involved in these initiatives.
