If you are in Amsterdam try to visit the event ‘INDIE BRANDS: The Denim Edition’

- Where Indie and Heritage Meet -

Indie Brands, the event, is back and this time we delve into the world of denim. Expect an evening with even more inspirational lectures, creative entrepreneurs and plenty of eye candy from brands like Ikku, Twin Couture, Koi Jeans and Fromanteel Watches. Other guests include fashion curator Nienke Bloemberg (Centraal Museum), Willa Stoutenbeek (W. Green) and James Veenhoff (House of Denim).

Following the highly successful first edition of the Indie Brands Event on December 22, 2011, we’re back with a smaller, but equally interesting event. The theme of the upcoming Indie Brands event will be denim, but the scope of the conversation will be much broader and of interest to all those with a love for indie entrepreneurship. Independent brands – from jean labels to organic lifestyle brands – will come together in ‘denim city’ Amsterdam to share ideas, talk business and inspire creatives and other indie entrepreneurs in the making.

Is there room for indie brands in the highly saturated denim market? Can you even call yourself indie when you’re working with a heritage-rich product like denim? And who is coming out on top in the race for innovation: the corporate giants or the under dogs? And why is that?
