Op vrijdag 7 september presenteren 14 vers afgestudeerde mode-ontwerpers, aan zeven verschillende Nederlandse mode- en kunstacademies, zich in één centrale catwalkshow: “Lichting” 2018. Tijdens Amsterdam Fashion Week is het de bedoeling dat de pers en mode professionals kennis kunnen maken met (voor zover ze dat al niet hadden gedaan in Juni tijdens de eindexamen-shows) het werk van deze groep ontwerpers, die geselecteerd zijn binnen de opleidingen.
De winnaar van Lichting 2018 ontvangt een geldprijs van €10.000,-, dit jaar beschikbaar gesteld door de Meester Koetsier Foundation. Voorheen waren de Nederlandse bedrijven G-Star en V&D zo aardig om dit project financiëel te steunen.
Alle en meer informatie is te vinden op de site lichting.nl
