The concept of 'Lichting' is simple: the best academy graduates of one year in 1 central catwalk show. In the audience are the most important people for the next step in their careers: fashion journalists and influential stylists, ready to spot the next big thing; CEO's and design managers on the look-out for talent; and the all-important players-behind-the-scenes, all eager to see what the nation's academies have brought forth this year.
Lichting was founded in 2007 to bridge the gap between the academies and students on the one side and the talent-hungry fashion industry on the other. Lichting brings together the very best of each of Holland's 7 fashion academies.
Lichting is a collaboration of HTNK, FashionWeek Nederland and Het Nieuwe Instituut.
