‘Students demand departure of director and senior lecturer in fashion training AMFI’

Students of the Amsterdam Fashion Institute (AMFI) and the student union ASVA are demanding the departure of the current director and associate professor of the fashion course, the NRC writes on the basis of a statement. According to the students, the departure of the two is necessary to ensure safety on the course.

The fashion course has been in the news several times since last year. In the summer of 2020, reports of racism in the training were already released. After a publication about the transgressive behavior of fashion entrepreneur and former AMFI student Martijn N., several messages were posted on social media about the unsafe learning and working environment at AMFI. RTLZ then spoke to some thirty students who indicated that they experienced constant stress on the course and that they were often publicly slated or were used during their time at AMFI.

AMFI subsequently initiated an investigation and a task force. On the update page of the training you can read that the investigation of an external party has started. Discussions with various parties have now started, after which an analysis is being made. It is not yet known when the investigation report will be ready, according to the message.

NRC reports that earlier this week, students published a list of changes needed to increase safety in the study program. In the statement that the newspaper now holds, the students report that they have no confidence that the reforms and a cultural change can be achieved with the current administration at the helm.
