Dazed Digital London : Denim Trends 2011

This presentation is courtesy Stylesight.com – leading trend agency worldwide.

Dazed & Confused is a British style magazine, that was set up in 1992 and published monthly. Its founding editors were Jefferson Hack and Rankin. Topics covered include music, fashion, film, art and literature.

In April 2011, Dazed and Confused launched its first Dazed Live festival. This was a two day festival with focus on radical ideas and inspirational art. Dazed live boasted performances from some top bands and DJs  New York alt band Gang Gang Dance, noisy experimentalists Factory Floor and cosmic disco legend Black Devil Disco Club. The buzz around this burgeoning festival translated into an explosion of defiant colors and fresh silhouettes that ranged from 90s-inspired grunge denim to refined sartorial styles.
