Amsterdam & Antwerp (FDES 280)

Spring: March 15 – 22, 2025

Fashion Study Aboard to Amsterdam and Antwerp. This course will introduce students to the international fashion market through a new lens.

Antwerp is frequently referred to as the origin of the “Antwerp Six” and has a long history in fashion. Six cutting-edge fashion designers made their debut in the 1980s and immediately became well-known around the world for their ground-breaking and avant-garde designs. Both cities are known for their sustainability efforts, including the Fashion for Good museum in Amsterdam that showcases the past, present, and future of sustainable fashion and highlights designers who are making sustainable fashion a reality.
