Twice a year, in January and July, Fashion Week forms the centre-point of the Dutch fashion world, with a full schedule of catwalk shows, trade fairs, presentations, lectures and parties.
The show programme is on invitation and for professionals only. AIFW takes place at the former Gas Factories in Amsterdam’s ‘Westergas’ area. Young and established designers show their collections on the Amsterdam catwalk. Fashion Week DOWNTOWN consists of numerous public catwalk shows, parties, shop launches, lectures and expositions, all organized in collaboration with local museums, galleries, clubs and shops.
