AMFI is located along the Amstel river on the Mauritskade. The historic building once housed the Amstel Brewery and maintains many of its monumental features. Part of the Amstelcampus, our students also have classes in the nearby Benno Premselahuis and Kohnstammhuis. The Amsterdam University of Applied Sciences (AUAS) is within bicycling distance of the historic city center, as well as popular places such as De Pijp, the Vondelpark and the Westergasfabriek.
Students come to study fashion at AMFI from over 54 countries across the world. The majority of the student population is Dutch, but over half of these students participate in the International variants of the Design, Management and Branding programmes. In the second year several students on exchange join your class. Many projects focus on using your individual talents and skills to work in a team.
From denim, to sustainability, pattern drawing, virtual design, concepting, textiles, new technologies, branding, sourcing, fashion identities, research, visual culture, and many more – the expertise of our lecturers in their respective fields is broad and deep. Many lecturers are actively working in the fashion industry and maintain professional connections for guest lectures, internships and special collaborations.
