On the 11th of September X BANK presented the exclusive Lichting
2018 exhibition, curated by Martien Mellema. Lichting is a spectacular catwalk show 
during Amsterdam Fashion Week, where 14 fashion graduates from the top
seven Dutch academies present their collection. For this exhibition we've asked fashion goddess Martien Mellema to curate seven looks from this year's participants.

Lichting is the debutant ball for the Dutch fashion industry and a celebration of talent and creativity.
This show build a bridge between the gap of students on one side and the talent-hungry fashion industry
on the other side. Lichting is an initiative by Amsterdam Fashion Week, the Meester Koetsier Foundation 
and HTNK fashion recruitment & consultancy. 

Martien Mellema, who curated this selection, has worked as a fashion editor for ELLE, ELLE girl, Glamour and as creative director for VOGUE and VOGUE MEN.

Among the curated selection were: Berend Brus, Jasmijn Taken, Jessica van Halteren, Maria van Steenoven, Nina Pen, Yaroslav Glazunov and ‘Sonia & Line Oet & Arngaard’.
