Last night, Epson set off Fashion Week with a banging party at Sixty 10 in NYC. The highlight of the event was the designer showcase of selected designers from the Americas, who all innovatively created their collections using Epson’s state-of-the-art direct-to-garment and digital dye-sublimation printing. To commemorate the return of this showcase of designers coming together for fashion, this year’s theme for the presentation was “Harmony and Peace Through Fashion.” As well as, getting to check out the stunning fashions guests enjoyed hor d’ourves and beverages from American Juice Company, Dry Sparkling Soda, Maven Cocktails, Red Bull, Rekorderlig, and Svedka Vodka.

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.
