Last night, SI hosted a big party at Frankfurt's Gibson Club to celebrate today's release of the 250th issue of Sportswear International Magazine. With more than 200 invited guests from the denim industry, good drinks, lots of nice conversations and plenty of good live music, the Sportswear team (and hopefully everyone else!) enjoyed a really fun evening in casual atmosphere.

After welcome drinks and starters, greeting words were given by Holger Knapp, Executive Director of Deutscher Fachverlag, Sabine Kühnl, Editor-in-Chief at Sportswear International and Dirk Lehmann, Publishing Director Sportswear International. The audience was then entertained by a Denim Talk between Marco Lucietti (Isko), Federica Albiero (Invista) and SI editor Maria Cristina Pavarini and after that learned a lot of fun facts about 250 issues of Sportswear International Magazine in an amusing video made by the SI team.

From around 8 pm, the upper bar of Frankfurt's popular Gibson Club filled up quickly with the invited guests. Flying food, champagne, beer and longdrinks cared for the physical well-being of the guests, while the sounds of the Gibson's who played on the ground floor put the people up to dancing.
With people such as Richard Walshe (Fred Perry), Alexander Hass (Lee), Matthias Herrmann (Wrangler), Panos Sofianos (Tejidos Royo), Dr. Emin Cezairli (Mavi), Mark Schäfer (Camel Active) and many, many more, the faces of the European denim world were united with the complete international SI team.

Thanks to everyone who came to celebrate with us, thanks to our sponsoring partners Isko and Lycra and thanks to all the people in the back who made this happen!
It was an awesome night!
