Digital Couture? Check Out These Latin American Designers
High fashion from a printer? Though it sounds crazy, the results are stunning.
Eleven designers from all over the Americas recently showcased collections before the official start of New York Fashion Week 2016. As part of Epson's 'Digital Couture Project' and under the theme of "Harmony and Peace Through Fashion,"" designers were able to create their pieces using direct-to-garment and digital dye-sublimation printing.
"The Americas is a rich continent with a wide variety of cultures. We want to make sure to show it's unified," said Alejandro Ordoñez, Epson's Latin America marketing and communications manager. "Even though we are different, there's something interesting when you put everything together. When you put a show like this, you can see there's a social context."
