Over de onderneming
What I like is helping the young generation from a global overview. […] Visiting schools and talking to young businessowner to share my experience allows to demonstrate that even by starting from nothing, we can work in business and then in Fashion. I am a businessman at first, a sales representative who has done thousands of kilometers on the road. This experience allowed me to build myself and to become a multipurpose person with a complete vision learned on the job. This is all I want to handover; reality, something concrete.

Every two weeks, the camp team holds master classes, and all employees have access to them, regardless of their position. At American Vintage, there are no barriers between departments, and many employees have even changed jobs during their training.
