Kingpins Transformers: ED, the educational conference focusing on fashion students who are in school and are about to enter fashion industry, will host its second edition on April 24, 2020, in Amsterdam in collaboration with House of Denim, HTNK, and the denim educational platform, Denim History. The event is sponsored by Saitex, Lenzing, and FibreTrace.

As with all Kingpins Transformers conferences, the focus of Transformers: ED will be on the social, environmental, and economic challenges facing the denim industry. The event will spotlight solutions being created by leading members of the denim community and help students understand the inefficiencies and threats facing the denim supply chain, as well as opportunities for improvement and innovation, according to a press release by Kingpins.

A complete list of speakers will announced soon, with representatives from companies including Lenzing, Tonello, DyStar, Kings of Indigo and more slated to participate in panels and presentations. Transformers: ED will be hosted by Mohsin Sajid, founder of Denim History, and Mariette Hoitink, of HTNK and House of Denim. The event is open to students, exclusively.

“We held our first ED conference in October 2019 at Ravensbourne University in London and the response was overwhelming. 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,” Andrew Olah, founder of Kingpins Transformers and Kingpins Show said.

Kingpins show organisers in collaboration with House of Denim, represents members of the denim community that are committed to creating, implementing and sharing the changes that need to happen in the jeans industry to make it.
