This year's edition of the Modefabriek was very special, as we introduced "True Colors" for the first time!

Afterwards, participants could introduce themselves and ask her any questions they had.
On Monday, Maurits van Lier from Summum was there to share with young professionals the insights of working at Summum, and the current professional threats and opportunities of working at Summum. Then, during the meet-and-greet session, participants could sit and talk to him personally about the brand.
