What has the 2016 Marina van Damme Grant Receiver, Lidewij van Twillert, been up to?

The main goal for which she has used the grant is to better understand the fashion world. She has been able to conclude that there is lack of a scientific, precise approach to making suitable clothing. In order to further professionalize Mesh Lingerie, she has taken different studies and she intents to work together with a business coach from YES!Delft to make greater strides in developing her company.
