Last week Grazia jetted all the way to L.A for a rare and exciting trip into the world of Citizens of Humanity denim. Jerome Dahan, the founder of Citizens of Humanity jeans and denim godfather Adriano Goldshmied, together, took us behind the scenes at the design HQ, then onto the factory where the jeans are made, followed by a laundry tour where we saw how Citizens of Humanity jeans are dyed, washed and even distressed, with their amazing cutting edge laser technology (see below).

And that's not all, in-between our fascinating factory visits the Citizens of Humanity team invited us to take a sneak peek at the Spring/Summer '13 collection! Of which our highlights include a pair of white needle cords, some fabulous blue dungarees and a perfect stone wash denim jacket (see below).

But the fun didn't stop their for Jerome Dahan, Adriano Goldshmied and their team were determined to show us the best L.A time ever, ensuring we visited some of their favourite places: along the way we gobbled down delicious pizza and other Italian delights at A-list favourite Mozza and enjoyed the most incredible feast at Mr. Chow!
Oh and we hit the surf at Malibu beach, before sipping Mai Tais at sundown at the surfer's drinking establishment Dukes.
