#LEARN Winter School Modefabriek

Modefabriek is much more than just two days of absorbing the latest collections, discovering brands and meeting new people. Modefabriek is ‘More Than Mode’: it is also a place to learn about important trends and tendencies, finding inspiration in unique individuals in the field, and acquiring essential knowledge for bringing out the best in your business. The #LEARN programme for 22 and 23 January is definitive, so mark your must-see MF Talks, Winter School Master Classes and Expert Sessions in your agenda!

MF Talks + Winter School + Expert

The Modefabriek lecture programme has expanded considerably over the past few years to become a complete #LEARN programme. Structural changes, such as digitalisation, Internet and the post-crisis retail situation, have unleashed an ambitious dynamic within our creative profession.

District D at Modefabriek is entirely dedicated to the theme LEARN / SHOP / EAT, and is the home of all of the #LEARN activities: MF Talks, Winter School and Expert.

The ‘More than Mode’ campaign has taken Modefabriek to the next level on several fronts. The same can be said of the shopping options this winter. In this edition, you will find the MORE DEPARTMENT STORE in District D – where all MF Talks and the Winter School are held and everyone comes together for good food. This is without a doubt the hottest shop in the Netherlands, even if only for two days: 22 & 23 January.

For the XXL MORE DEPARTMENT STORE, Modefabriek has surrounded itself with the best possible partners, who in turn have selected their favourite brands and products with the main theme of ‘Athleisure’. You will find the following shop-in-shops around the large lighted dance floor:

During Modefabriek will Van Gils launch its new Sneaker Suit Winter collection. The Tailored Sportswear line was developed in collaboration with DJ Dannic. The collection consists of slim cut suits, jackets, trousers and shirts, in stretch and jerseys. Garment dyed joggers combined with brushed shirts and unconstructed jackets gives the collection a modern and less formal look.

On Sunday during The Borrel, ‘Van Gils x Dannic’ will entertain the crowd with a performance by the DJ himself. He will be spinning his records from 19:30 to 20:30. A unique opportunity to meet this world-class DJ live!

NOTE! You’re all invited for The Borrel by showing your MF-badge. Limited availability.
