For creatives it might be Mac World, for Sci-Fi nerds the Star Trek convention, but for denim geeks like me it’s a trade show dedicated entirely to jeans called Denim by Premiere Vision. Held twice a year in Paris it is all about jeans. Yarn, weaving, denim, dying, tailoring, cutting, sewing, washing and trimming… the uniform of the human race. It’s not a huge show but it is amazing. Vendors are all denim-heads and come from all over the planet. Denim is our common language. Today I worked with people from Spain, Italy, Turkey, Japan, Belgium, Greece, USA, France, England and other countries. Many of these people have been my friend and/or trading partner for years but we have never met face to face. Incredible! The photo here is of a hand operated loom that was weaving denim all day. A thing of beauty. Very Zen. One of the days highlights was being in the trenches with Adriano Goldschmied and having him acknowledge me and my work. I am not talking about the company that purchased and uses his name but the man himself, the master.
