The digital version of the international denim trade show has announced its program for this October, revealing a three-day calendar focusing on inspiration, innovation and technology, and the environment.
The denim-only tradeshow has announced that, in light of current developments related to the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic, it is canceling this season’s New York event, originally scheduled for December 6-7.
Participants -- from the CFDA and PVH, to designers Gabriela Hearst and Anyango Mpinga -- will contribute to the month-long sustainability-focused event led by Kerry Bannigan's The Conscious Fashion Campaign.

Created in partnership with sourcing marketplace Material Exchange, the virtual trade show promises "a robust and flexible digital showroom platform," equipped with helpful tools and features for denim mills and buyers.
