Kingpins Transformers: Women in the indigo universe

“Over the years I’ve always considered myself lucky to work in an industry where a lot of women are considered to be as important as men. Where being different seems normal. Where creativity and business become one. I’ve met many amazing women in managing positions. And at the same time I’ve often wondered how it was possible that those talented and experienced women, were not in the spotlights nor do they want or need to be in the centre of attention.

For the winter edition of Transformers Kingpins, House of Denim and HTNK worked closely together to make Transformers into a relevant as well as entertaining denim seminar fueled by female energy and titled ‘WOMEN in the Indigo Universe’”
Mariette Hoitink (HTNK) and Andrew Olah (The Kingpins Show) curated and moderated Kingpins Transformers. This bi-annual summit gave stakeholders in denim (industry, government and education) a look behind the indigo curtain to spotlight the role and stories of women in the denim industry. It featured women operating in managerial positions in different parts of the denim supply chain - from cotton to marketing, from denim weaving to laundry, from brand to trend on the topics of sustainability and innovation.
