Well, that was really nice. Super, super nice. It was awesome, really. Best Kingpins Amsterdam show ever, in fact.

A special thank-you to our sponsors - INVISTA and e3 Cotton.

Some highlights:

We grew. A lot. More exhibitors, more categories, more resources.

Kingpins Trend was back, stronger and more inspiring. You can buy it here.

Our attendance was off-the-charts. Attendees came from all over the world and flooded the aisles and booths and seminars.

Japanese Special Section – a capsule of Japanese mills and resources.

Taiwan Textile Collective – a capsule of Taiwanese mills and resources.

Tonello Denim Gallery – an installation of washes created by 10 designers and executed using Tonello’s wash technology and innovations.

Global Denim Awards 2016 Winning Designs – a gorgeous collection that pushes the concept of denim fashion to new heights. Designed by Anbasja Blanken in collaboration with Kingpins exhibitor ITV Denim, the collection combines technology and deep denim tradition. Also, it glows.

Cordura Installation – A first-of-its-kind capsule collection, ‘Re/Mastered’, made its debut at Kingpins Amsterdam. The collection was curated in honor of Cordura’s ‘heritage meets innovation’ 50th Anniversary theme by the world class design team at ‘Monsieur-T.’ studio in Paris, and featured latest generation CORDURA® denim and canvas fabrics from four of their partner mills – Artistic Milliners, Arvind, Cone Denim and Kipas.

Denim City Laundry Days – a new annual event from Denim City, Blue Lab team and the House of Denim Foundation to put the spotlight on the world’s leading laundries.

We're back for S/S 2019 (!!!) in October. October 25/26.
