This year we celebrate our 20th anniversary, and as part of the festivities we have invited students from Dutch academies for a workshop making Fashion GIFs like a pro. A GIFt from us to the next generation of fashion talents!

For this workshop by Fleur van Maarschalkerwaart from @studioultradeluxe and DFF’s founding director Angelique Westerhof, we’ve opened up our amazing archive as material for the students to make Fashion GIFs with. Scroll down and meet all the students.

“I really enjoyed the GIF workshop.
Being able to make Fashion GIFs will help me give a joyful boost to my future website.

This was also the perfect opportunity to meet other young designers and to be able to take a look into DFF.”
