New York Denim Days Festival

#HipNJ at the New York Denim Days Festival

#HipNJ spent the weekend in the Big Apple at the New York Denim Days Festival

This two-day, indigo-soaked affair featured some of the top brands in denim, new designers, vintage good and musical performances by country sensation and vintage purveyor Nikki Lane.

Title Sponsor TENCEL™ branded fibers by Lenzing was on site with interactive displays and shop-in-shops stocked with a selection of garments using its fiber from top brands, including 3X1, Mavi, Reformation, Godfather of Denim and more.

Some of the many highlights included:

  • A Denim Talks speaker series that featured a who’s who in the denim world. Speakers included “The Evolution of Denim + A Peek at the Future” with Jordan Nodarse of Reformation, Adriano Goldschmied of Genius group, Scott Morrison of 3×1 and Tricia Carey of TENCEL™; as well as an influencer panel with Lamont Howard, Kim Geronimo, Alexandra Machover, Sarah Funk and Bryan Griffin.
  • Denim Days featured on-site book signings and a chance to meet-and-greet with denim authors including Amy Leverton (Denim Dudes, Denim: Street Style, Vintage, Obsession), Andrew Luecke (COOL: Style, Sound and Subversion), Peter Van Rhoon (Book of Denim Vol. 2), Doug Gunn and Roy Lucket (Worn x Kingpins, The Vintage Showroom: An Archive of Menswear) and Nick Williams (Denim Branded: Jeanswear’s Evolving Design Details).
  • Cult-favorite brand Atelier & Repairs is an initiative to eliminate the world’s excess, one stitch at a time. They have a mission to not create anything new, but instead transform what already exists. At the 2018 Denim Days Festival, Atelier & Repairs challenged students of New York City’s Fashion High School to transform a $5 T-shirt into a garment of their own design. The winners were two young women from the high school, who received a mentorship by Atelier & Repairs creator Maurizo Donaldi.
  • Popular women’s fashion brand Madewell represented a “Blue Jeans Go Green” initiative, where guests were invited to recycle old pairs of denim in exchange for $20 toward a new pair.
  • Former New York Giants defensive end Michael Strahan continued his foray into the fashion industry with a new collection of denim, which celebrated its launch at New York Denim Days. M BY MICHAEL STRAHAN was inspired by the direction of casual fashion in the industry, and the line features quality products at an affordable price.
