A while ago I interviewed my very talented Friend Kelly about her Selvedge Denim workwear brand Dawson Denim, since then she has expanded into making beautifully hand crafted totes & helmet bags made with vegetable dyed leather . They have enjoyed the succeses of being stocked in Japan, featured numerous style sections including Jocks & Nerds Magazine, a drive style book by Horst Freidrichs & have been picked up by genuine traiders all over the world.

I didn’t really know much about the Selvedge Denim world before I met Kels & have learnt so much from her! For Dawson Denim, everything is still 100% Brighton Made, made in the UK (sometimes even Kel’s Dad gets involved!) with authentic Japanese Selvedge Denim.
The reason for my revisit is to tell you about what Dawson Denim have been working on recently. So, if hand making aprons & bags wasn’t enough, those talented digits have now created a Jean!
The jean itself is a unisex, regular fit & will be launching in October at the Best of Britainia show – Details here! (it was only last year at the first BoB show that they ‘officially’ launched their Aprons!) These guys mean business!
Here are some sneak peak shots from a shoot we did just last week with the lovely Kenny at Create in Brighton.
It was an awesome day! The studio was great and to be honest it was just a bunch of mates hanging out pulling serious some ‘Blue Steel’ looks! Stay tuned for the Look Book that should be out next week!
