In 2003/2004 I was the visual editor of the jubilee book Academy Arnhem 50 Years in Fashion: an overview and retrospective of 50 years fashion department.
 
In 1953 the legendary Elly Lamaker founded within the Academy of Fine Arts Arnhem the department for Fashion Design and Fashion Illustration. With only a handful of students and little by way of resources Fashion Design had to proof itself on all levels: in relation to the fashion industry and the already existing and comparable courses abroad.
In 2003 the department existed 50 years, and to celebrate this occasion an exhibition was held in the Arnhem’ Museum of Modern Art, “Mode Ode”, in the summer of 2004. Simultaneously the book “Academy Arnhem 50 Years in Fashion” was launched.
