Today it was announced that the first New York Denim Days will be held from September 30 to October 1, 2017. Set to bow at the Metropolitan Pavilion - 125 West 18th Street – New York Denim Days will aim to connect denim insiders, designers and brands with denim consumers in a two-day festival.
“The energy and inspiration we all get from the successful and influential Amsterdam Denim Days is immense. We can’t wait to launch an all-American version for style-setting, indigo-devoted New Yorkers,” said Lucel van den Hoeven, founder of Amsterdam Denim Days.
The schedule of events will include interactive displays and workshops from brands, designers and denim mills alongside in-store events, a vintage denim market, parties and panels – all geared to give consumers access to their denim heroes and heritage brands and connect brands, designers and members of the denim supply chain to their end customers.
“As a collaborator in Amsterdam Denim Days, I have had the great pleasure to see an incredible concept resonate with an audience and grow each season. We believe that denim lovers stateside are ready for a denim festival of their own,” said Andrew Olah, founder of the Kingpins Show, the seminal denim supply chain show, and co-founder of New York Denim Days. “There is so much passion for denim here, so many great resources, personalities and craftsmen that will help us make New York Denim Days a must-attend event for the denim community.”
The complete New York Denim Days schedule will be announced shortly.
