2012-2013 Clean Start Month 0 Part 1

Clean Start Project by Blue Seven

On October 1, 2012, we officially started our second Clean Start Project. With over 50 people participating in this year’s Clean Start Project, it took hours of photography, editing, information gathering and denim documenting to produce our Month 0 Clean Start photos. Thank you to the lovely Greer Inez Photography for capturing our participants.

We produce this project because we love it. We love denim. We love connecting with our customers & friends around the world. And, we want to make it bigger and better every year. Thanks to everyone that followed along as we documented last year’s Project — We hope to make this one even better.

You’ll notice that not all 50+ participants are featured below. We decided to split the photos into multiple blog articles to keep the article length reasonable. (Your scrolling finger will thank us)
