The next edition of Transformers ED, a student- and consumer-facing denim education series, will be virtually presented via Zoom on October 14 to 16. In collaboration with Ravensbourne University London, the digital event is also receiving an upgrade in terms of scope and scale.
During the three days topics such as supply chain, sustainability and design will be in focus. Transformers ED is hosted by denim expert Mohsin Sajid. Among the speakers and panelists are Alberto DeConti/Rudolf Group; Jason Denham/Denham; Ebru Ozaydin/Artistic Milliners; Alberto Candiani/Candiani Denim; Sue Barrett/Denim Forum; Amy Leverton/Denim Dudes and others.
Andrew Olah, founder of Transformers Foundation and Kingpins Show, says, “The response to our past Transformers ED events has been overwhelming with students from 30 universities and fashion programs across Europe attending to receive an in-depth and unvarnished crash course on the state of the denim supply chain.”
For the third edition of Transformers ED, the schedule has been postponed to accommodate the US students. The goal of the event is to give students a clear understanding of the opportunities and challenges of the jeans industry and to prepare them ideally for a start in the fashion industry.
