WWD Digital Daily - - News - BY WWD STAFF

New York Denim Days is not im­pacted by the changes.

Based on feed­back from the denim com­mu­nity, the King­pins Show has shifted its New York show sched­ule. The King­pins New York Show was ini­tially set for June 8 and 9, but will now run June 12 and 13. King­pins Trans­form­ers is set for June 11, and New York Denim Days “will keep its orig­i­nal dates, host­ing its fes­ti­val cel­e­brat­ing all things indigo on June 8-9,” show or­ga­niz­ers said.

Show and King­pins Trans­form­ers, said he re­ceived feed­back “that our New York show was too close to Ramadan and came too closely on the heels of our King­pins Hong Kong show, which takes place May 15 and 16. Our new June 12 and 13 dates al­low us to ac­com­mo­date our ex­hibitors and at­ten­dees and best serve our com­mu­nity.”

King­pins New York will fea­ture a vin­tage mar­ket, “giv­ing de­sign­ers and denim in­dus­try pro­fes­sion­als the op­por­tu­nity to shop for in­spi­ra­tion as they plan for their fall/win­ter 2020 col­lec­tions,” show or­ga­niz­ers noted.

This year, King­pins New York cel­e­brates its 15th year, and is po­si­tioned as “the sourc­ing and in­spi­ra­tion hub of the Amer­i­can denim in­dus­try.” Denim Days is mar­keted as a con­sumer denim fes­ti­val while King­pins Trans­form­ers is po­si­tioned as “a sum­mit se­ries spot­light­ing mem­bers of the denim com­mu­nity who are com­mit­ted to cre­at­ing, im­ple­ment­ing and shar­ing the changes that need to hap­pen in the jeans in­dus­try to make it more en­vi­ron­men­tally vi­able, so­cially re­spon­si­ble and fi­nan­cially sound.”
