Tenue de Nîmes’ Rene in Jury for Global Denim Awards
Last month Rene was asked to be one of the jury members of the Global Denim Awards
in Amsterdam. Together with industry legends Jason Denham and Adriano Goldschmied, Rene was asked to select the winner of the 2014 Global Denim Awards. The denim award show was held during this fall’s Kingpins
denim show in the new home of Amsterdam’s Jean School
at the spectacular ‘De Hallen’ building.
Rene and the rest of the team had to evaluate the work of 6 designers who had been collaborating with 6 international denim mills. The main objective for the designers and their team was to explore the possibilities of denim in the future. The great thing was that basically none of the designers had a lot of experience in denim and therefore could have an unbiassed look at modern denim design. The collections were shown during a denim catwalk show on October 29th and the jury pointed out Jonathan Christopher as the winner of this first award show.
We were very proud to have Rene on board of this exciting initiative and we thought it would be nice to show some of the highlights of the day for those of you who missed it! We hope to see you all at the next Kingpins show and of course the Global Denim Awards in April next year! Pictures Team Peter Stigter
