Because we care of our society and our people, and most important the future generations and education, we partnered up with the Fashion Department at Universidad Iberoamericana in Mexico City, to teach the students about denim and share our big passion for it.
For the entire semester, students were introduced to the concept of denim in a way they have never seen or experienced before; we taught them about the process of creating the fabric, and brought them to have hands on experience at the mill, to learn about the dry and wet process as well as the finishing and explained to them the entire supply chain.
We also partnered up with Mexican brand “Cuidado con el Perro®” which aims at a much hip, edgy and younger market.
The project, which will conclude tomorrow in a runway show will include the final work of each of the 34 students on the program. It will have two categories; “Street Style” and “Total Creativity”.
“Street Style”; will aim the Cuidado con el Perro® market, and “Total Creativity” is looking for the students to use their creativity in transforming denim in a way they are not used to, to create high fashion garments and use new finishing techniques.
Everything was created with different types of Global Denim´s® fabric, students used fabrics with all kinds of constructions, and played with different weights.
Stay tuned for pictures of this great runway show.

Following our participation on the Kingpins Show, Global Denim was featured on RIVETANDJEANS.COM in their “MILLS TOUT AUTHENTIC AND SUSTAINABLE DENIM FOR S/S 18” article along with industry reviews and news some of the biggest denim mills, focusing mostly on sustainability and authenticity.
Here’s an extract;
“Global Denim offers the best of both worlds with denim with authentic character, broken twill and a touch of stretch. Fabrications such as these can work for skinny as well as a carpenter jean, noted Michelle Branch, Global Denim creative director.
The Mexico-based mill also added a super lightweight 3×1 denim to its elevated Prime line that can be used for men’s and women’s bottoms, as well as shirting. Plush, the 3×1 denim that feels like knit, gets a color update for S/S 18, this time in blue.
Branch said she sees a return to authentic Carharrt looks, PFDs and black denim. The mill is playing with rusty coatings and canvas and denim in shades of worker blue and green.”
