The first Global Denim Awards are a fact. Last night at De Hallen in Amsterdam young designer Jonathan Christopher received the award/cheque worth  10.000 euro. The Global Denim Awards is an anual event that pairs the worlds premier denim mills with emerging designers. This year it were six designers: Stefano Ughetti, Gizem Turan, Jonathan Christopher, Fernanda Fernandes, Bhavesh Samji and Anneloes van Osselaer.

The collections were judged by a panel of international denim experts based on the merits of the design and innovative nature of the denim fabrications. The award – 10.000 euro – was made possible by e3, the winning designer also will have the collection displayed at the Kingpins shows around the world.

Jonathan Christopher presented a collection together with ITV and got his inspiration by nomads. His Nomadum collection gives a peek in the different worlds of nomads, the urban nomad wondering through the city but also the ones that go through rough terrain. Destroying the garments, and getting it dirty, collecting waste material and making it into something beautiful. Jonathan Christopher made it into a modern,  rough collection.
