Plog Amsterdam Denim Days 2014 Blueprint pt. 2: Meet the Denim Heroes

IMG-20140510-04410

In this plog I like to take you trough the awesome stuff the pro’s of the denim industry produced (made) or designed. During the event I had the opportunity to talk to them and got them to pose with their own creations. To me they truly are Denim Heroes.

Meet Lizzie Kroeze of Facing West. She presented the Expo ‘Indigo Roosters’. This Exhibition was curated by her and Miles Johnson (Designer Director of Levi’s XX). It is a collection of indigo fabrics and pieces from all over the world. Check out the denim quilt and jacket she made herself. Love!!

Introducing Dutch Denim Heroe Jesper Remmerswaal of Tulp Jeans. He designed and made these jeans himself using raw denim. Unfortunately women, he only produces jeans for men. Look at the jeans transformation trough the years from raw denim to the denim jeans we all know and see on the streets. Amazing isn’t it:
