During the Amsterdam Denim Days I organised a denim expo. For this expo I used the private collection from denim designer Jason Denham. Jason is the founder of the Amsterdam based Denham brand and has an extremely huge and rare collection. Jason collected the items within his long career where he travelled a lot to the U.S.A. and Japan for inspiration. One of his best items were displayed to show the visitors of the Blueprint event a bit of his collection. The Blueprint event was a big success, so can’t wait till next year for #3. Below some highlights. Thanks for your support Jason!
