On July 14 Transformers Foundation will launch the Catalysts event, an online webinar meant to spotlight members and experiences from the denim supply chain focused on defining new rules and paths for its future development and change.
The event will take place from 10:00 am to 1:00 pm (Eastern Time – USA and Canada) and will present various speakers including Luciano Bueno from Galy, a start-up that grows cotton in a lab from cells and not from plants; Darren Glenister from Material Exchange, a company focused on managing materials through a new digital experience; and Jane Palmer from Nature Coatings, an innovation company focused on transforming wood waste into black pigments.
Panelists of the upcoming edition of Catalysts-Transformers Foundation
The working day will also host panels showcasing new approaches within the fiber, denim and jeanswear industry. One of these will feature Shannon Mercer from Fibertrace, Sedef Uncu Aki from Orta and John Condilis from Nobody Denim.
Another roundtable happening on the same day will involve Jordan Nodarse from Boyish, Anna Foster from E.L.V. Denim and Tony Tonnaer from Kings of Indigo.
The Transformers Foundation is a non-profit organization. It is based on the continuous feedback from Kingpins’ exhibitors interested in getting informed, educated and connected with other insiders of the industry while also aiming to collaborate with external organizations.
