New York Denim Days will be held from September 22 to 23. The second annual show returns with a two-day shopping event and speaker series. The event connects denim professionals, designers and brands with denim consumers and brings together denim lovers in a festival atmosphere with vintage markets, live music, demonstrations, hands-on workshops and activities for children.
The event is sponsored by Tencel. Denim made with Tencel fibers will be front and center at New York Denim Days. The Tencel branded booth will be stocked with denim by Mavi, 3×1, Reformation and Paulita Carlotta and an exclusive Denim Days T-shirt made with Tencel branded lyocell fibers.
Rivet too has partnered Tencel for a collection of men’s jeans to be launched at Denim Days. The Edit Denim x Rivet collection pays homage to Americas. Stretch fabrications are made with cotton, spandex and Tencel from the US, and Mexico’s Kaltex produced the fabrics and garments.
The collection is based on two essential fits—slim and straight—and six washes. Minimal, matte finish hardware and dyed-to-match trims enhance the jeans’ premium hand feel. Exhibitors include Candiani, Hudson, Madewell and garment finisher Tonello, who will present art by Holly Brown and Juan Manuel Gomez, using 100 per cent recycled dyes produced by Officia+39.
