Epson held a fashion show in New York City this week to showcase its crazy fabric printing technology.

With the help of 13 designers, and its special SureColor F-Series printers, the company put together a huge range of wild and lively outfits that could soon be available on a high street near you.

If not, you could print them yourself.

At the newly-constructed Pier 17 in Manhattan, a host of technologists, fashionistas, models, and socials joined Epson for its fourth annual Digital Couture fashion show. They all got a glimpse at the latest “high fashion collections” made using Epson’s printers.

State-the-art

All of the outfits were created using the SureColor F-Series, a line of high-speed, low-cost fabric printers that promise sharp, vivid imagery and an abundance of rich colors. They give fashion, textile, and interior designers the ability to bring their ideas to life with the click of a mouse.

Of course, SureColor printers are Mac-compatible. The F-Series, which has been refined for reliable and precise production, uses dye-sublimation and starts at around $8,495.
