The history of denim

· · Comments
I've had a love affair with denim since the start of my career in the denim department of Juicy Couture and it's something that is at the core of every outfit I wear. I love how denim can be dressed up or down and with a little stretch can be worn for everything (even dancing, look at Beau!)

 

Denim has a long history dating back as far as the 1500's, when it is believed it was first invented in Genoa, Italy. Although it was first made in Italy, the material itself came from the French city called Nimes. 'De nimes', which means 'from Nimes' in English gave the material it's name and the word 'jeans' actually has roots in the word 'Genes' which is the french word for the city of Genoa.
