Rivet’s Influential 50 is an annual index of the most creative and forward-thinking leaders driving the global jeanswear industry. Honorees are selected through peer-to-peer nomination and an online voting process.
In 2021, more than 16,000 votes cast online determined the international honorees culled from five categories: executives, designers, supply chain, mills and agents of change. Previous honorees include Levi Strauss & Co. CEO and president Chip Bergh, “Godfather of Denim” Adriano Goldschmied, Madewell CEO Libby Wadle and more.
Each year, Rivet 50 is showcased on a dedicated microsite and in Rivet’s fall print and online issue with in-depth bios and exclusive Q&As. Rivet 50 honorees also particupate in panel discussions at key industry events.
The first-ever Rivet 50 event will take place in October 2022.
