The Denim Directory
Denim Dudes launched their season fabric report, The Denim Directory, for the denim industry. This report is focussed on trends of the Spring Summer 2022 season, from fibers, fabirc to finish. Trend insights and forecasts and the last developments from the top denim mills around the world are included.
Amy Leverton About The Denim Directory
“We have decided to make this report open to all, with a ‘pay what you can’ option,” says Amy Leverton, Founder of Denim Dudes. “At a time like this, we want all companies, large and small, struggling or buoyant, to have the most current and in-depth information out there in order to make the smartest and most sustainable choices. With this report, we aim to close the physical gap between us, through information sharing and transparency.”
“2020 has significantly changed the resources and level of inspiration designers have at their disposal to shape and inform their collections,” said Leverton. “Trade shows, fashion weeks, showroom visits and inspiration trips have all been cancelled due to COVID. Plus, design teams have thinned – leading to a time-deficit among designers with increased duties and reduced time for exploring offerings from mills. With The Denim Directory, we are able to use our specific skill set and industry access to create a report that fills in the gaps for designers in a way we never have before.”
90 Pages Full Of Inspiration
The Denim Directory contains 90 pages on denim inspiration. It captures around 400 fabric qualities from more than 40 contributors. It includes offerings from mills, manufacturers, chemical companies and the surrounding supply chain. Also, it includes 35 detailed profile pages on each contributor, showcasing an edit of their seasonal highlights and contact details. mills include such as AGI, Bossa, Tejidos Royo, ISKO, Cone, Orta, Arvind, Calik and many more.
The Denim Directory is for the first time free for download. But, they have added a ‘pay what you want’ option, and 10% of proceeds will be donated to Fashion Revolution to pay that kindness forward.
