When you think of casual, universal clothing, denim naturally comes to mind. Talk to Amy Leverton, author of Denim, and she will remind you that denim is an ever-evolving personalized article of clothing that should be continuously celebrated. Amy has “been working in the denim industry since 2003. She was previously head of Denim and Youth Culture at the trend-forecasting website WGSN and now operates her own company, Denim Dudes, out of Los Angeles.” To add to those successes, she decided to write Denim to spread the love of denim across the globe, as one does.
