Welcome to Amsterdam International Fashion Week January 2008
|AIFW aims to become an international platform for Dutch fashion, New Luxury brands, breakthrough talent and commercial success. Started out only 4 years ago with a modest 3 catwalk shows, Amsterdam Fashion Week has taken an incredible leap. During the 8th edition of Amsterdam International Fashion Week, over 100 designers and labels take to catwalk across town this week.
On schedule this edition is a vibrant mix of fresh new talents, ambitious breakthrough designers and established brands. AIFW presents couture as well as ready-to-wear and street wear collections, both men’s and women’s.
The essence and raison d’être of every fashion week are the catwalk shows.
Buyers, press, stylists and other professional stakeholders are invited to see what – according the showing designers - are the new looks for next season. An entire new collection and season’s work squeezed together into twenty minutes of magic.
The Official Schedule shows are held mainly at the AIFW venue on the culture park Westergasfabriek. A number of designers show at an alternative location, such as their own sales showroom, a trade fair or chosen venue.
Most catwalk shows are accessible by invitation only. Amsterdam Fashion Week’s program expands every single edition. Recently, a number of events have been added, where also the public is able to be part and enjoy the magic of fashion shows. Be sure to check out the public program of the Amsterdam Fashion Week
