Epson hosted the Third Annual Digital Couture Project on February 7, 2017.
Kicking-off the Technology Showcase portion of the Digital Couture Project, Epson’s global president, Minoru Usui, will outline Epson’s continued vision for the role that digital technology will play in fashion. A panel of fashion and apparel industry experts, moderated by Anthony Cenname, vice president and publisher at WSJ. Magazine, will discuss market trends and technology's role in fashion.
The 2017 Digital Couture Project event will also serve as the official introduction of the Robustelli-Epson brand to the international fashion community. In June 2016, Epson acquired Italian textile printer manufacturer Robustelli, a renowned textile printer manufacturer and long-time partner, and will showcase for the first time, an array of high-quality Robustelli-Epson textile samples during the event. The entry of Robustelli into the Epson Group allows it to leverage Epson's manufacturing capability to bring the advantages of its digital inkjet textile printers to more customers around the world.
“New technologies from Epson are allowing designers to push the boundaries of color and quality while simultaneously giving creative teams incredible versatility and productivity. With the market for worldwide digital textile printing expected to grow annually at almost 25 percent1, this is a very exciting opportunity,” Kratzberg added.
