Description

KINGPINS TRANSFORMERS: ED

18th OCTOBER 2019

Event is sponsored by Lenzing, Saitex and Fibretrace


Location: RAVENSBOURNE UNIVERSITY, LONDON, U.K.


KINGPINS TRANSFORMERS: ED is the first of what we hope will be an annual educational conference focusing on fashion students who are still at university and are about to enter the wider fashion industry.



Our focus will be on the social, environmental and economic challenges facing the denim industry. We will spotlight solutions being created by leading members of the denim community going through the entire denim supply chain.


This event is designed to educate and inspire students, who will hear about denim production from fiber to the finished jean directly from leading supply chain experts.



KINGPINS TRANSFORMERS: ED seeks to be the modern-day salon for the sharing of ideas and the implementing of change to make the jeans industry more environmentally viable, socially responsible and financially sound.


At our inaugural event, ED speakers will explore the supply chain, explaining how things are made, identify best practices and, from there, students will learn about sustainability throughout the production chain.



KINGPINS TRANSFORMERS: ED is hosted by Mohsin Sajid founder of Denim History.



Confirmed speakers: Kerry Bannigan from Conscious Fashion Campaign, Miguel Sanchez, Michael Kininmonth from Lenzing, Helen Latham from LYCRA, Alberto Candiani, Alice Tonello, Bilgehan ‘Han’ Ates from Blackhorse Lane Ateliers, Graphics branding expert Nick Williams, Simon Beachus, Sanjeev Bahl owner of Saitex, Jakob Krzysko of Dystar, Rowan Hunt of Debenhams and Kingpins Show founder Andrew Olah.
