Bringing the denim industry together while keeping people apart
The annual Kingpins Show, a trade event for denim industry professionals, has moved its next gathering online due to the coronavirus (COVID-19). Redubbed Kingpins 24, it focuses on the fall/winter 2021 season and takes place on 22 and 23 April.
With a selection of livestreams of interviews, panels, discussions and content from exhibitors, the event will also feature chances to interact with other professionals. Presentations will focus on corporate social responsibility and sustainability. Registration – which allows access to on-demand content and livestreams – is free.
For $35, attendees can also sign up for a Denim Dudes trend forecasting session, which will air several times each day.
Helping the fashion world during difficult times
In a statement to the press, Andrew Olah, founder of Kingpins, said that, “We, as a whole, are resilient, resourceful and optimistic…We believe Kingpins24 can give our global industry a chance to connect and share information.”
Continuing, he added that Kingpins hopes to be “a conduit for the denim world during these difficult times” when people find themselves “at home far away from our normal world.”
