WWD Denim Forum Highlights Social Responsibility


There is a trend in the denim industry, and we’re not talking about the next skinny jean.  On May 10, denim executives from around the world came together for the first WWD Denim Forum.  A key topic which resonated with attendees was about the move towards social responsibility and green technology. “I was pleased to see that so many of the speakers shared future goals and visions for the industry, such as a larger social and environmental responsibility,” says Nicks Ericsson, director of marketing for William Rast/J Lindeberg. View speaker highlights from the forum below.

Tony Chu, vice president of communications at Hudson Jeans thought there were “a very compelling group of speakers in diverse segments of the denim business.”  Furthermore, he echoed the sentiments of many in attendance. “To support and participate in a denim summit, the first of its kind in our ‘backyard’ of Los Angeles, was a no brainer.” According to WWD News Correspondent Khanh T.L. Tran, the WWD Denim Forum, which drew “the cream of the crop,” is expected to return in 2012. To watch more videos from the conference, go to Fora.TV.
