Digital textile printer manufacturer Epson is collaborating with ASEAN Fashion Designers Showcase (AFDS) to raise awareness on sustainable fashion through innovative technology.

As part of the collaboration, Epson partnered with seven designers from different ASEAN countries to create a unique collection with a sustainability theme that ties in with the cultural roots of their respective countries.

The full ‘Sustainability in Asia’ collection will be unveiled during Epson’s LFP Innovation Day in Bangkok on March 21, 2024.

Leading up to the main event, part of the collection will be showcased at Epson Solution Center across the region.

The seven designers from AFDS are Terry Yeo from Singapore, Lisa Fitria from Indonesia, Even Ong from Malaysia, Dave Ocampo from Philippines, Pitnapat Yotinratanachai from Thailand, Nicky Vu from Vietnam and Bandid Lasavong from Laos.

The designers are leveraging Epson’s line of dye sublimation printers including SureColor SC-F6430, SureColor SC-F9430H and SureColor SC-F10030 to produce bright and sharp colour apparel pieces for these unique collections.

“We are thrilled to collaborate with AFDS to raise awareness on sustainable digital textile printing through a creative showcase on apparels with these ASEAN designers,” Derek Tan, Head of Sales and Marketing, Epson Singapore said.

“Guided by our brand message, ‘Engineered for Good’”, Epson is continuously exploring different ways to co-create sustainability technology solutions that truly enrich our communities and address issues surrounding the environment,” he added.

“The team of designers with AFDS are excited to participate in this unique partnership with Epson, aligning with their shared vision for the future of fashion and technology,” Hayden Ng, Founder AFDS also said.

“The collaborative designs crafted for this venture embody a vibrant fusion of fun, youthfulness, fashion-forward sensibilities, and practical wearability,” he too added.
