In its eighteenth edition, the magazine of the Amsterdam Fashion Institute uses the concept of the party dress as a vehicle to start a conversation about important topics within the fashion industry that lie beneath the surface, in desperate need of becoming visible. Such issues include the lack of knowledge regarding diversity and inclusivity, the urge to label, and industries trying to tick boxes for commercial gain. The magazine consists of three phases and creates an open discussion on the outdated views on stereotypes and stigmas within fashion. The next generation of fashion professionals offer different perspectives in an effort to rouse change makers in the industry.
