Kingpins Transformers - Women in the Indigo Universe

Kingpins Transformers is a bi-annual conference focussing on the social, environmental and economic challenges facing the denim industry. Stakeholders in denim (industry, government and education) are invited to listen, discuss and learn.This edition will be fueled by female energy and will feature women speakers who operate in managerial positions in different parts of the denim supply chain.

From cotton growing to marketing, from denim mill/weaving to laundry, from trend to brand these women will share their personal stories. To sustain and to grow is the mission for every professional in a management position. What can all of us, men as well as women learn from some of the best women in the business? How do they see the future of denim? Transformers, Women in the Indigo Universe, is curated and moderated by Andrew Olah & Mariette Hoitink.
