The Jeanius breakfast
There are plenty of things that Brighton is well known for. Vicious, thieving seagulls. The Pride Festival. A dilapidated pier. But jeans?
But a mile or so from the seafront, in unassuming Hollingdean Road, a husband and wife team are producing top end, hand-made jeans and other denim products. They are made using sewing machines from the fifties and sixties. The material is Japanese selvedge denim*, woven and dyed in Okayama.
Kelly Dawson and Scott Ogden are the pair behind Dawson Denim, made in Brighton but exported to Cologne, Tokyo, California….and Doncaster.
They will be talking about how the business started from their second bedroom, where their love of denim came from, and whether they were any good at sewing at school.
*Don’t know what selvedge denim is? You’ll need to come to the breakfast to find out.
