Epson Kicked off NYFW With Their Second Annual Digital Couture Event

Wednesday, February 10, 2016

A global leader in printing technology, Epson, hosted its second annual Digital Couture event last night in New York City. Coinciding with New York Fashion Week, the glamorous event spotlighted 11 designers’ collections from North and Latin America created using Epson’s innovative textile printing technologies. This year’s theme was “Harmony and Peace through Fashion,” and celebrated the creative freedom that state-of-the-art technologies provide for fashion designers.

Following its 2015 acquisition of For.Tex, a leader in the sales and marketing of textile inks, and its partnership with Robustelli, a company specializing in the development, manufacturing and sales of digital textile printers, Epson demonstrated a wide array of high-quality textile samples during the event and showed the globalization of textile printing business. “Digital technology has changed every industry it’s touched, and now it’s revolutionizing the fashion industry,” said Keith Kratzberg, executive vice president of Epson America.

Guests like Alida Boer, Abby Elliott, Harley Viera-Newton, Langley Fox, Chelsea Leyland, Selita Ebanks, Arden Wohl, Amber Feld, Lauren Bochner, and Yuwei Lee enjoyed an evening of music by DJ Pamela Katz and an assortment of drinks while watching a demonstration of technology’s impact on the fashion industry.

Epson’s dye-sublimation and direct-to-garment solutions allow for a range of design possibilities and this event showcased how some of the designers apply them to bring their creative vision to life, such as Chloe Trujillo from California, Christina Ruales from Brooklyn, Fabrizzio Berrocal from Costa Rica, Kaleidoscopic by María de Lourdes from Mexico, Matías Hernán from Chile, Santika by Danny Santiago from Miami, and many more.
