The debut of the event in 2014 featured designers with no previous experience in denim, along with some of the top mills throughout the world. The runway at last year’s event, sponsored by sustainable cotton program e3, featured innovative collections of denim outfits from designers from such countries as Italy, Turkey and England. Denims and Jeans reported that the debut runway show featured use of “clean fabrics, modern designs, mixed patterns…and standout stitches.”
