Topics like Europe’s net-zero efforts, clean chemistry and how brands can balance style with technology will be discussed during the show’s Denim Talks series.
A vintage market curated by Cristian Murianni, the owner of the Denim Institute Milano, underscores the integration of resale and secondhand into traditional retail, while the Denim Fashion District will showcase 15 ready-to-wear and accessories brands with a focus on denim.
