Last October during the second edition of ‘Global Denim Awards’, an event made possible by e3, a jury of international denim experts selected Sartoria Diletto and Italian mill Candiani Denim as the winning collaboration for this year’s Best Collection. A prize of €10.000 went to the designer. Over 750 denim professionals from around the globe were present at the runway show, while eight pair-ups of emerging designers and premier denim mills presented capsule collections at the Zuiveringshal of the Westergasfabriek in Amsterdam. Denim mill Berto Industria Tessile (Italy) won the honorary Best Fabric award, as a recognition for its innovative denim fabrics. Check here the video from the denim blue night!
