SIGN UP FOR JEAN SCHOOL
3 YEAR COURSE
WHAT DOES THE EDUCATION LOOK LIKE?
You will get lessons on the history of denim, you will learn how the entire cycle is composited from drawing board to jeans in the stores, but you will also experience in which way the product is sold. You will be trained in both technical and practice-oriented subjects and you will then apply your knowledge to design assignments.
Thanks to the cooperation with House of Denim and HTNK Fashion recruitment & consultancy, Jean School has built an extensive and global network of companies in the denim industry where students can do an internship. During the 3 year course you have two internships in which you learn in a professional environment.
The Jean School education is given at two locations. Partly in the denim atelier of the ROC Amsterdam at the Europaboulevard in Amsterdam and partly in Denim City. Denim City is the first denim-innovation campus in the world and is located in De Hallen in Amsterdam-West. Here you will get lessons at, for example, the Blue lab that experiments with new and durable techniques to wash and to colour denim. A denim atelier is also situated here and you can go there every day to do some work.
