Blueprint, a new denim-based fabric trade show, will launch in New York in just over two weeks.
The new concept is created and run by Bill Curtin, owner of the New Jersey-based BPD Washhouse denim laundry, and will highlight fabric offerings for the fall 2016 season.

The international exhibitors list includes numerous denim mills such as Orta Anadolu and Calik (both from Turkey), IPU 142, d.b.a. ITOCHU Prominent USA, Raymond Uco (from India), Mount Vernon (from the USA), Grandtex, Tyfountex Creative Workshop and Eratex Manufacturing (all three from Indonesia) plus the trim manufacturer Wellfit-SotaStyle Group WSG Intl.

In addition, a small selection of local resources and patternmakers will exhibit. These include Manhattan-based companies NYC Factory Inc and Caroda and High Production and the New Jersey-based company Inez Inc.
Curtin has also invited jeanswear brands to show at Blueprint but the final list of them is still to be confirmed.
BPD Washhouse will also be on hand and will sponsor an interactive area with dry process equipment where visitors and exhibitors can learn and try denim finishing techniques such as handsanding, grinding and destruction. The event will also feature a vintage denim flea market, the proceeds from which will benefit #DenimDoingGood.

“Blueprint believes this fresh approach will engage the visitor like never before,” says Curtin who adds that the show will be “more boutique, more informative and more creative” than other fabric get-togethers.

Blueprint will take place Wednesday and Thursday June 24 and 25 from 9am to 6pm in Manhattan’s Meatpacking District at 22 Little West 12th Street. The closing party will be on Thursday from 6pm to 9pm.
