The concept of 'Lichting' is simple: the best academy graduates of one year in 1 central catwalk show. 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.
HTNK’s Mariette Hoitink is the host of the evening and moderator of the panel discussion.
