Hello Lovies:

It was two nights before New York Fashion Week officially started and I was feeling pumped. I had been invited to the Epson Digital Couture in past seasons but was never able to make it due to a scheduling conflict. This season I wanted to make it my business to attend; and I did! The Epson Digital Couture showcase was comprised of eleven selected designers from the North and South America whom created their capsule collections using Epson’s state-of-the-art direct-to-garment and digital dye-sublimation printing. This season’s theme for the collections was designed around “Harmony and Peace Through Fashion.”

Designers include:
 Chloe Trujillo from Los Angeles, Calif., Cristina Ruales from Brooklyn, N.Y., Fabrizzio Berrocal from Costa Rica, GM by Gustavo Moscoso from Ecuador, Kaleidoscopic by María de Lourdes Ramírez and Isabel Navarro Landa from Mexico,LENERD by Felipe Santamaría Luque from Colombia, Matías Hernán from Chile, Ossira by Agostina Orlandi and Ludmila Osikovsky from Argentina, Pionier by Janet Ríos and Carmen Artica from Peru, Santika by Danny Santiago from Miami, Fla., Tigresse by Fabio Yukio from Brazil

“Digital dye-sublimation and direct-to-garment technologies, a relatively new trend in the textile industry, allow designers to alter textile designs, make color selections with the click of a mouse, and hone in on the fine details of their creations. Epson‘s SureColor® F-Series printers give fashion and textile designers alike an accessible means to bring their ideas and inspiration to life, with the signature quality that distinguishes the Epson brand. The SureColor F-Series printers are high-speed, low-cost solutions that produce sharp, vivid images and offer an abundance of rich colors, intense blacks, and smooth gradations onto fabric.”

It was a truly great event with fabulous music to keep the vibe going DJ’d by Chelsea Leyland, all night long. I found myself wanting to dance while weaving my way through the presentation. There were lots of items that I’d want to wear right now and wish I had in my closet! Hopefully one day! Congrats to all of these designers for a fabulous job and for making digital screen printing fun, cool and innovative!
