Epson Provides Production Support for Fashion Designer Yuima Nakazato’s Paris Fashion Week

25 July 2022: Seiko Epson Corporation provided support to fashion designer Yuima Nakazato for his collection shown at the 2022 Paris Haute Couture Collection on July 7, 2022. Epson supported the production of the fashions and stage design from June 3 to June 28.

Yuima Nakazato’s fashion house has a vision that the evolution of clothing will create an even richer future. To fulfill its responsibility for the future, the fashion house has continued to carefully select the materials used and the sources from which they are procured. It has always sought to create clothing that is designed to be worn for a long time and then recycled.

Epson endorses the Yuima Nakazato vision and recently used digital textile printing technology to support the reproduction of the delicate textures and colors of hand-painted materials to the exacting requirements of the fashion house as well as producing the works with a reduced environmental impact. Yuima Nakazato’s designs were faithfully reproduced on extremely thin (0.07 mm) silk organdy fabric that was used for some of the fashions using a Monna Lisa digital inkjet textile printer at the Solution Center in Epson’s Fujimi Plant.

Digital textile printing does not require printing plates, so it is ideally suited for the rapid production of material in only the amount required. And, since these designs were printed using pigment ink, which requires fewer steps than a dye ink printing process, Yuima Nakazato was able to work on the designs for the fashion collection until shortly before the show.

In addition to supporting clothing production, Epson also supported the stage design by using its digital printing technology in the production of paper sculptures. These sculptures were important elements that helped to create the vision of the blue-themed collection. The entire stage was enshrouded in images of Earth that were hand-painted by Yuima Nakazato. These images were enlarged and printed over a total of 832 sq. mtrs. of print paper using an SC-P20050 inkjet printer at the LFP Solution Center in Epson’s Hirooka Office.
