ACTIVITIES SINCE 2000

In 2000 the Dutch Fashion Foundation (DFF) emerges out of a growing need for the development of a Dutch fashion climate.

Angélique Westerhof, co-creator and director of the master course Fashion Institute Arnhem, perceived that graduated fashion designers experienced difficulties in presenting collections on their own, starting their own label and creating a connection with the international fashion industry. She established the Dutch Fashion Foundation to activate a collective, self organizing Dutch fashion discipline.
