Event description

Description

This September, we are celebrating all things indigo with a unique pop-up space on Soho’s Brewer Street.

At Denim Futures, visitors can explore our new limited-edition ranges; the premium 1969 denim collection, Denim through the Decades (our ode to the '70s, '80s and '90s) and an exciting new collaboration with Atelier & Repairs. In addition, we're offering a full personalisation service where customers will be able to hem, stud, distress, patch, embroider, and even laser their Gap denim completely free.


We will also play host to a series of denim events, in partnership with i-D magazine and Selkie Patterns.


FULL EVENT TIMETABLE + DETAILS

All event attendees will receive a limited-edition denim tote bag, Gap Document coffee table book, and 50th anniversary notebook.

Description:
i-D fashion editor and stylist Bojana Kozarevic will chair a lively panel discussion on the importance of sustainable fashion, featuring designer Bethany Williams and Gap’s Head of Design John Caruso, recorded for I-D podcast Fash-ON Fash-OFF, which will focus on the part denim can play as we consume fashion in a more considerate way in the future.

Embroider Your Denim | Workshop in collaboration with Selkie Patterns
Saturday 14th September
11am - 1pm
Description:
Selkie founders will show participants how to embroider their own denim and embellish with simple stitches – a great way to up cycle, hide stains, blow new life into old garments. Customers will then take home what they’ve created.
Important information: Please bring a piece of denim you would like to embroider with you. We will provide all other materials, plus lots of denim to practice on.


Ode to Denim | Workshop in collaboration with i-D magazine
Thursday 19th September
7:00pm - 9.00pm

Description: London’s first young poet laureate Caleb Femi and Mancunian spoken word artist Isaiah Hull will lead a workshop designed to help you customise your denim in the London pop up space. Aimed at unlocking creativity, this workshop will also illustrate the sustainable power of denim so that it remains a fixture of our future wardrobes. Doors open at 6.30pm.


Customise Your Denim | Workshop in collaboration with i-D magazine
Saturday 21st September

Description:
Responding to the Denim Futures theme, designer Eleanor Williams will lead a workshop demonstrating ways you can give your denim a new lease of life.
