Kingpins held an event in Colombia on January 24, 2023.
Called Noche de Experiencia, the event included a panel-style conversation with several key denim suppliers discussing Kingpins’ role as a trade show and networking platform. The in-depth conversation focused on Kingpins’ ethos and its efforts to foster a more responsible denim industry and how Latin America can be part of this mission.Attendees could explore installations of several Kingpins initiatives, including Kingpins Trend, Most Sustainable Product, One Denim; and the Taste of Kingpins shop offering mostly indigo merchandise.
The Circle Book #3 was also presented.The show also featured live music, as well as videos from recent Kingpins shows in Amsterdam and New York. The hope was to foster connections with South American denim lovers and jeans suppliers who share Kingpins’ values. Latin America is increasingly the focus of denim industry initiatives as the sourcing map shifts away from China.Kingpins’ goal is to connect the global denim community and inspire everyone to continually pioneer best practices for people and the planet. Kingpins had had a long-held dream to expand its reach to Latin America, explore new business opportunities, and Kingpins Noche de Experiencia was a significant step in that direction.
