Who we are as boutique academy is not a marketing ploy, but an integral part of our vision. Our educational vision focuses on those students who do not feel at home in regular ‘mass’ education. The Amsterdam Fashion Academy is a unique, boutique academy: a veritable Valhalla for fashion mavericks. This small and intimate academy only has a limited number of places making each one precious. This means that those who study here are highly motivated and eager to liberate and develop their creative spirit. We have the highest quality of teaching staff who flourish in the informal and friendly atmosphere along with being given the time and space needed to nurture individual talent and creativity. They get the most out of students not just thanks to their knowledge and enthusiasm but by making learning personal and bespoke. There is a maximum intake of 12 students per year per course.
