Jeans designed for a seated position
Denim is for everyone. We want to create a completely new kind of jeans, designed for a seated body position.
Louise Linderoth, globally recognised for sending models in wheelchairs down the runway, create completely new kind of denims, designed after a seated body position. Together, Louise Linderoth and Dr. Denim now realize the dream about jeans for everyone. The purpose of the collaboration is to create a commercial super skinny denim style based and inspired by Linderoth's acclaimed, conceptual collection Have A Seat.
Dr. Denim support Louise Linderoth in pattern making and throughout the production, making her innovative design available to customers across the globe. The first samples are already in the making, soon to be presented to the world. The next step is to raise the funds to push the play button, having them produced on a larger scale, making the dream come true.

Risks and challenges
Dr. Denim can support Louise setting up a production, but to get it started we need to know the world wants it. Help us raise the funds needed to start the production.
The project itself has very few risks and is simply about making a dream come true. To realise this groundbreaking design we are using Dr. Denims regular production, expertise teams, processes and workflows. Dr. Denim ships in average 1.500.000 pair of jeans every year so a solid production and workflow is already in place. If produced the jeans will be distributed through drdenim.com and through a distribution partner.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
