School talk


(I love my new Nelly top! What do you think?)

Hey there my lovely readers!

This post is dedicated to my school, since you are asking me a lot about it. I just started, so please don't 
expect that I can write a full book about it, but I'll write the most important things down for you :-)

So here I go: I study at the Amsterdam Fashion Institute (AMFI). You can choose between 3 courses: 
Fashion and - Branding or Management or Design. I chose for the course Fashion & Branding. It's a 4
 year long education where I'm going to learn about trend forecasting, magazines, photoshop, photo 
shoots, communication, retail concepts, styling, campaigns & a lot more! I'm really excited.

The first semester (half a year) is really basic and I do the same projects as Design and Management 
students. Really cool! The three projects every student has to do are: design a Style book (a whole book 
dedicated to an icon or time period), a Prototype (design a dress with several sewing techniques) & 
make an Inspiration book (everything that inspires you).

I just succesfully finished my Style book. Every student received a subject from the teacher for their 
Style book. Mine was the Ottomans. I didn't like it at all, but when I look back I'm quite satisfied. (same 
story as my hair basically. Okay stay focused!) In the end I had to deliver two products; a research 
book: all kinds of pictures, assignments & interesting stuff about the Ottomans and a Style book: the 
modern translation in a few pages & words inspired by your research book. 

Now I'm busy with my second project: Prototype. In one week time I had to sew 10 types of dresses
 with the gathering technique. I first had to gain some inspiration by making a collage on a big spread. 
After that I had to do sew the dresses on a little mannequin. After I designed the dresses I had to take
 pictures, draw them & write down why I did what I did. I also had to look for fabrics and make 
pictures of my outfit (this is a thing I do daily, so no big deal hihi). 
It's nice to do stuff like that & I only go to school 2 days a week, but now you probably understand 
why I'm so busy all the time!

The second semester is different for every student, here you specify the course you chose. For more
 information/details you can check the AMFI website here. Let me know if you have any more 
questions guys!

  16. Very happy with this post because I just signed in for this study so I could use some references! I do have a question tho, because you say you only go to school 2 days a week. Are you attempting the fulltime study?

    Oh and I love your blog!
