Denim Day grew from a 1999 court ruling in which the Italian High Court overturned a rape conviction, arguing that because the victim was wearing tight jeans at the time of the assault she must have been conferring consent. The ruling provoked outrage + wearing denim on the anniversary became an international expression of protest against misguided attitudes about sexual violence.
My shoot in New York for Fashion Week Brooklyn was pretty awesome. We shot in Soho, Manhattan + in Williamsburg, Brooklyn. The Denim Day Campaign is in support of Sexual Assault Awareness Month. On 29 April 2015, models, makeup artists, hairstylists, bloggers + fashionistas will walk across the Brooklyn Bridge to City Hall styled in denim for the cause! City Hall will host the official commencement speech. Brooklyn Fashion Week will be held on 25-28 June this year, with one lucky designer showcasing his or her collection on the runway!
