The fashion department of ArtEZ Institute of the Arts was founded in 1953 and has had a very good reputation ever since, both at home and abroad.
Students and alumni from Arnhem are regularly among the winners of the much-coveted Dutch and international fashion awards. Designers educated in Arnhem are employed in all segments of the fashion branch. Well-known names like Viktor & Rolf, Alexander van Slobbe (SO by Alexander van Slobbe and Orson+Bodil), Lucas Ossendrijver (Lanvin Homme), Iris van Herpen, Piet Paris and Li Edelkoort once were students in their fashion department.
Every year, the ArtEZ fashion graduation show is the moment to spot the fashion talent of the future.
