First of August is an Amsterdam-based fashion company of Karlijn Boersma. She graduated at the Amsterdam Fashion Institute and gained a Master degree in Cultural Sociology, with a strong focus on the relation between fashion and sociological trends.

First of August invites you to shop, learn and visit!
FoA is a subtle blend between elegance and ease. An evolving process without restriction to time and space. As a cultural sociologist FoA. designer Karlijn Boersma believes style is the result of someone’s identity and creativity.
Inspired by interactions, theories and moment’s out of her daily life, she develops collections for FoA. that fit to your personal style!

In our online store we sell clothes and accessories that are close to our personal taste and try to define a modern aesthetic style for the elegant, creative and enthusiastic urban men- and women. All our products are designed in Amsterdam and made with care in Europe.
First of August started as a blog on August first, 2010. The blog distinguishes itself from other blogs, because of the connection between a personal vision on style and sociological trends. People, style and trends are the key issues in our stories.
