Denim extravaganza ‘New York Denim Days’ returned to the fashion hub for its second edition on September 22nd and 23rd. Held at the Metropolitan Pavilion, the denim show was organised by Modefabriek in association with Kingpins Show, and fashion staffing & consultancy, HTNK.
The two-day indigo-soaked event had interactive displays, indigo dyeing, new denim designers as well as established brands and denim mills, vintage, and workshops.
Numerous brands, say around 75 exhibitors, presented innovative denim products at the show. Austrian fibre manufacturer, Lenzing also showcased Tencel-made denim at the event. “We are pleased to be returning to New York Denim Days as a sponsor and bringing ‘Tencel Feels So Right’ to consumers,” said Tricia Carey, Tencel’s Director of Global Business Development, adding, “It is amazing to see denim enthusiasts discover how trees are made into jeans and feel the comfort of Tencel Denim.”
At the show, women’s fashion brand Madewell came up with its ‘Blue Jeans Go Green’ initiative, in which visitors were invited to reprocess their old pairs of denim in return for US $ 20 for a new pair.
Apart, Atelier and Repairs, Candiani Denim, Denim Prive, Hudson Jeans, Rising Sun – Artistic Milliners, Studio One Eighty-Nine, Supima Cotton, Swonne, Tonello, Trico Field, and more were among the exhibitors.
The NY Denim Days also conducted sessions on key topics such as ‘The Evolution of Denim + A Peek at the Future’.
