Denim City was founded with a clear mission: to connect and inspire our stakeholders, to bring our industry ‘Towards a Brighter Blue’. Everything we do is geared to making denim dryer, cleaner and smarter. It is only natural, then, that Education is one of our core activities.
Since our opening in April 2015, we have given numerous ad hoc industry training sessions (to retail, wholesale and brand teams) about a variety of industry-related topics, ranging from denim basics to sustainability and laundry. With a growing importance on differentiation and innovation, all functional departments need a higher level of knowledge. Many companies have asked us to offer on-going professional education for their teams.
Based on our experience with Jean School and requests from partner brands, we have decided to develop a larger, more structured program of training and education modules, called Denim City Academy. The Academy will offer a variety of short, in-depth courses developed for speci c professional audiences, from junior level to professional expert level.
Together with our co-founders and partners, we have developed several course modules, with which a tailor-made course can be created, at varying levels and standards.
All courses and workshops are hands-on and interactive, making full use of Denim City’s unique facilities: Workshop, Archive (with its collection of iconic garments from various eras and brands), Institute and Blue Lab (our in-house sustainable laundry facility). Passion, inspiration and practical experience combine with theory to ensure maximal learning.
