Why We Need a Denim Fading Competition (with Bryan Szabo)

Bryan from the Indigo Invitational Tells His Story on the Podcast

In the second episode of the Denimhunters Podcast, I talk to Bryan Szabo, the founder of the Indigo Invitational fade competition.

Bryan’s been guest blogging here on Denimhunters since last autumn, sharing denim knowledge that’s particularly relevant for faders and spectators of the competition he started last year. (You can read all those posts here—including a Q&A I did with Bryan before he began guest blogging.)

On the podcast, Bryan tells the story of how it all began. How he got into denim in the first place. About his first pair of raws (Average Joes from Nudie). About ballroom dancing (yes, you read that right). And how he ended up living in Budapest in Hungary.

Naturally, we talk about the Indigo Invitational and why he started it. And what he expects and hopes for its second year, which starts on October 1, 2020.
