New! This summer it is possible to follow different workshops, hosted by different fashion designers to get an introduction in fashion design. These workshops are a great way to built up a portfolio if you are interested in following a fashion design education in the future.

Focus is on fashion design, experimenting with it and at De Steek the topics are always influenced by a sustainable background.
