Will Varnam aka @rugged_style recaps the activities and events of the 2018 edition of the Amsterdam Denim Days festival. From getting your hands blue to meeting the Instagram denim community in real life, this is what you missed out on if you didn’t go.
I’ve known Piero Turk for years, but I never really heard his story. We sat down at Munich Fabric Start’s Bluezone show in September to discuss how he ended up in denim, and how denim’s has changed since he did.
During Amsterdam Denim Days 2018, Benzak Denim Developers celebrated their 5-year anniversary. The day after the party, we got a tour of the new BDD studio.
Instagrammer Koen Kuik has become my go-to guy for tips and tricks about the popular social media platform. At Bluezone in Munich, he shared some of his knowledge. Watch the video to learn how you can become more successful on Instagram.
At the Bluezone show in September, Wouter Munnichs and I sat down with Simon Giuliani from Candiani Denim to discuss how consumers can help make denim more sustainable. Watch the video interview to learn what you can do.
Wouter Munnichs and I go back several years. We both blog and teach about denim. In a new series of video interviews from the Bluezone denim trade show, we share the stories of some of the coolest people in ‘the blue world.’ But first, let’s hear Wouter’s own story.
At the show back in January, I asked 10 denim influential insiders of the business of denim why Bluezone is a must-visit show in a series of video interviews. Find out what they have to say.
If you know a bit about Iron Heart, the name Padmore will ring a bell. Outside of Japan, the face of the brand has always been Giles Padmore. A year and a half ago, his son Alex stepped up as general manager.
I met Alex at Selvedge Run to talk about his background and why the Iron Heart is never going to follow any fast fashion trends.
During Selvedge Run in Berlin earlier this summer, I sat down with Ben Woodhouse, the guy behind the Clobber Calm universe, to talk about his idea for offering better customer service when you’re shopping for raws online with the Clobber Call.
I met Ruedi Karrer aka the Swiss Jeans Freak at Selvedge Run in Berlin to talk about his vision for the Jeans Museum and how to bring it to life. You can watch the conversation in this video.
