Minor Fashion & Editorial Branding

In this minor students work together to come up with and launch new fashion media brands. Students create everything: from concepts to the production of content – using writing, photo styling and art direction to translate a topic to multiple media channels. This excellence minor introduces students to every aspect of the publishing business; from brainstorming to production; from design to publication; from website to launch event. In the second half of the programme students become part of one of the newly created companies and work to share this new fashion media brand with the world. All products made are required to stand the test of the professional world of fashion publishing.

Fashion & Visual Culture

In the first phase of this minor students create new fashion photos based on inspiration by their favourite designer. In the next phase, students learn to make short fashion films. These films take as their inspiration young Dutch designers. At the end of the minor the photos will be exhibited in the byAMFI Statement Store and the films will be shown in Bioscoop Het Ketelhuis.
