19th Amsterdam Fashion Week announced its dates

The 19th edition of Amsterdam Fashion Week will take place from the 6th till the 16th of July 2013 and will comprise of four programmes: Downtown, the Catwalk Programme, Fashion LAB and the Business Programme.



This edition is dedicated to the development of talent and innovation and gives substance to the first and second of the three pillars of Amsterdam Fashion Week: Connect, Grow and Celebrate.

Besides attractive discounts and goodie bags (via VoucherCloud) from the participating entrepreneurs, eight inspiring pop-up catwalk shows will be organised on central locations, that are free to visit. On Saturday the 6th of July the spectacular party ‘Celebrate’, now a tradition, takes place in AIR. This party is organised in collaboration with the Night Mayor of Amsterdam and celebrates the connections between fashion and night life with a diverse programme by stylists, designers and artists.
