AMFI is currently the largest fashion institute in the Netherlands. More than 100 lecturers teach more than 1100 students about all aspects of the fashion world. AMFI is also the only fashion institute in the Netherlands that covers the entire fashion chain. This ensures our students to have a broad perspective of the fashion industry. They choose to specialise in either Fashion & Design, Fashion & Management or Fashion & Branding. AMFI offers all its programmes in Dutch as well as in English. Students graduate with a Bachelor Degree in Fashion Technology.

AMFI chooses to see fashion in both industry and culture. This perspective extends the scope of fashion to the full process of design creating, production, distribution and communication. Our education considers the industrial practices of the fashion industry. This perspective covers all facets of fashion as idea, object and image and reconciles the paradox between commerce and culture.
