Amsterdam Based Denim Days Is Going to Nashville
17 Apr 2018
Denim Days is going to Nashville. The public denim event, which already takes place annually in Amsterdam and New York, will now take place in the Tennessee capital city on November 10 and 11.
The denim festival, which debuted in Amsterdam, went international last year to New York CIty. From September 29 to October 1, the first American version of Denim Days took place at the Metropolitan Pavilion in New York. ‘Like all other denim day editions, the Nashville event will connect indigo fans and full-on denim heads to industry through workshops by craftsmen and denim manufacturers, a vintage market, live entertainment and local food and drink,’ said the website of the New York Denim Days.
The Amsterdam Denim Days first took place five years ago, with the debut week long event running simultaneously with denim trade fair Kingpins Amsterdam. Last September, organiser Lucel van den Hoeven revealed to FashionUnited that the event had been considering plans to expand to other countries. At that time, the first international expansion location selected was New York, home of the event’s partner, Kingpins. The first New York Denim Days was a instant success, leading to the launch of the new event location in Nashville.
Similarly to the earlier editions of the denim festival, the debut of Nashville Denim Days will offer workshops, vintage markets, denim consumers, showcase brands, and provide live entertainment and local bites.Photo credit: Denim Days website
