A couple of weeks ago we headed to Desert & Denim for their annual gathering of like-minded makers. Held at the Institute of Mentalphysics, the event has become a bit like a denim family gathering that we look forward to every year. This year, with the new book out, we decided to turn the 'cosmic campfire' blue and host the pre-party. Armed with a couple of denim backdrops from our friends at The Fox Hole and Loren Denim and with ace photographer, Heidi Sproketz in tow, we shot all our favourite people in their double denim desert looks.
