Epson unveils latest digital textile printers

Epson has been a front-runner in textile printing, starting with the Mona Lisa printer—the first-ever digital textile printer.

Continuing this legacy and extending it to the Philippine fashion industry, Epson showcased their latest direct-to-garment printers and dye sublimation printers, the Surecolor F2000 and F7170, through a fashion show at the Marco Polo hotel in Ortigas, Pasig.

In collaboration with some of the brightest Filipino designers, Epson organized the “Fashion Forward” show featuring a range of garments from avant-garde couture to sporty apparel. The textiles used had patterns printed using Epson’s latest fabric printers. The F2000 and F7170 fabric printers enabled the designers to create their own custom textile design, printing their artistic visions straight to the fabric.

“The innovative fabric printers behind the fashion forward designs showcased today may even surpass its frontrunner because of Epson’s unique solution to develop the ink and hardware together. This has resulted in exceptional print quality and outstanding productivity,” said Epson Philippines President/Country Manager Toshimitsu Tanaka.

Philippine fashion brands—Empire Clothing Co., Conspicuous swimwear, and Ziya—joined the fashion show as well as Asia’s Most Influential Designer of 2014 Avel Bacudio. Among those who strutted on the runway were supermodel Ria Bolivar and Asia’s Next Top Model finalist Katarina Rodriguez.
