GLOBAL DENIM AWARDS MADE POSSIBLE BY E3 COTTON

Global Denim Awards links progressive design with technical innovation by partnering 11 emerging fashion designers with 11 of the most progressive denim mills worldwide. In two years Global Denim Awards has almost doubled its number of participants and has become the world’s premier platform for the future of denim design, innovation, sustainability and craftsmanship. Global Denim Awards is an initiative of HTNK, Kingpins Show & House of Denim, made possible by e3 cotton. Global Denim Awards coincides with the Amsterdam edition of the Kingpins Show.

Participants


Emerging designers from all over the world were selected and paired with one premier and progressive denim mill each. They are given the opportunity to visit their designated mill to develop an in-depth understanding of fibre, fabric, wash and denim development. Armed with these new skills as well as their mill’s best fabrications, each designer develops a capsule collection of five total looks, including treatments and washes, which will be presented on the runway.

Jury


The 11 collections that result from the collaborations between selected mills and designers, will be judged by a jury of international denim experts on the overall look, the innovative nature of the design, and the creative use of denim. The winning designer will receive a €10,000 award. An additional award goes to the mill with the most innovative fabric.
