A vibrant fashion hub

The Amsterdam Metropolitan Area is a vibrant fashion hub that is presently home to more than a hundred fashion houses and designers. Thanks to its strategic location, the area is also an important logistics centre for the distribution of fashion items. This combination of creative excellence and logistic superiority acts as a magnet to many international companies in the fashion industry.

Amsterdam is regarded as a global village due to the uniquely intimate nature of this modern metropolis. With an environment where everything is accessible by foot or by bike, people enjoy living and working in the city. The costs of living here are lower than in cities such as London, Paris or Stockholm and, apart from London, Amsterdam is considered the only European city in which you can work fully in English.
