Kingpins Transformers: Ed to land in Amsterdam
Feb 18, 2020
Kingpins Transformers: Ed, the educational Kingpins conference dedicated to fashion students, will host its second edition on April 24 in Amsterdam.
Focused on the social, environmental and economic challenges facing the denim industry, the event will spotlight current solutions and help students understand the threats facing the denim supply chain, Kingpins said, in addition to exploring opportunities for improvement and innovation.
Held in collaboration with House of Denim, HTNK, and the denim educational platform Denim History, the event is open exclusively to students. The Amsterdam event follows the debut Transformers: ED conference held in London on October 18.
“The response [to the first edition of Kingpins Transformers: Ed] was overwhelming,” said Andrew Olah, founder of Kingpins Transformers and Kingpins Show. “More than 300 students from 30 universities and fashion programs across Europe attended and received an in-depth and unvarnished crash course on the state of the denim supply chain. Our goal is to prepare students to enter our industry and hit the ground running with a clear understanding of the opportunities and challenges facing the jeans industry. If we want to change the future of the denim industry, we must equip the young professionals entering the industry with the best information and insight.”
Kingpins said it will release a list of speakers who will appear at the conference soon, including representatives from companies like Lenzing, Tonello, DyStar, Kings of Indigo.
Transformers: Ed will be hosted by Mohsin Sajid, founder of Denim History, and Mariette Hoitink, of HTNK and House of Denim. The event is sponsored by Saitex, Lenzing and FibreTrace.
