The Start Of Glenn’s Denim
Glenn’s Denim is a denim brand founded by Glenn Liburd in New York, USA. After 30-years of experience in making clothes and denim, he started last year at an age of 62 his denim brand Glenn’s Denim. With his brand, he’s using all the experiences that he learned working behind the scenes designing, cutting, and sewing for others. His brand is made in partnership with Daniel and Brenna Lewis, founders of Brooklyn-based tailoring brand Brooklyn Tailors.
The Inspiration Of Glenn’s Denim
The styles within Glenn’s Denim collection take their cue from the subcultures of New York City, particularly that of the 1970s and ’80s when the gritty, troubled city was the breeding ground for radical new music, art, and culture. Punk was emerging on the Bowery. Hip Hop was making waves in Harlem. And, a new avant-garde of artists was emerging in Soho lofts.
Denim was so often the uniform of choice for this diverse group of young innovators and rebels, it was a perfect blank canvas to express oneself. This was the exciting world that inspired Glenn, through movies, music, and magazines, while he was growing up in Trinidad.
