Kingpins New York winter show to focus on denim history, subcultures and trends for 2020
today Nov 23, 2018
Denim trade show Kingpins will host its winter show in New York from November 28 through 29 in Basketball City, located at Pier 36, and is set to focus on the past, present and future of denim trends.
The invitation-only event will feature a range of manufacturers and members from the denim industry, offering a variety of indigo talks, educational seminars, and predictions of 2020 trends. Mirroring a growing pattern within the textile world's showcases and trade shows, the Kingpins website said the show will include several companies focused on sustainability within the denim industry.
The upcoming Kingpins New York exhibitor roster includes event sponsors Lycra Brand and E3, companies like Lenzing, Global Denim, Hebi Geyuan Textile Co Ltd. and Arvind Limited, as well as a special selection of Japanese denim companies.
Featured discussions will include "100 Years of Women’s Garments at Levi Strauss & Co.," a seminar by Levi's historian Tracey Panek discussing the denim brand's most significant womenswear moments over the past century, and "DIY Denim: Subcultures and the Making of Meaning," a conversation on the connection between denim, subcultures and fashion "myth-making" featuring authors Andrew Luecke and Amy Leverton.
There will also be two presentations of "Kingpins Denim Trends for S/S 2020. Fit, fabric, finish," a talk hosted by Amy Leverton of Denim Dudes and presenting a forecast of the top four trends of the season, including "research and references, mood and style direction, key color selections, and more."
In addition to its biannual shows in New York, Kingpins also hosts shows in Hong Kong, Amsterdam and mainland China.
