Fashion designer John Herrera has partnered with Epson for a 30-piece collection digitally printed with Epson’s printers.
The collection for men and women is inspired by the Aguila and was showcased at the recent London Fashion Week 2017.

The collection won John the position of Britain’s Top Designer 2017, a competition organized by Fashion’s Finest.
John, based in Manila, was also previously a winner at the London Emerging Designers (LED) Awards in 2015.
Taking fashion to the next level, Herrera works closely with Epson in the Philippines through digital textile printing using Epson’s SureColor F-series dye-sublimation digital textile printers.
“This partnership with Epson is very exciting. There are so many things you can do with printing compared to just buying fabric. Before, all collections by designers were created painstakingly by hand. Many of the outfits, such as 3D items that are worn by the models can only be attached by hand, so what was presented on the runway cannot be worn again and again. With digital printing, the clothes in the collection can be worn in real life,” said John Herrera. “The collection I will be presenting will be impossible to create without the Epson digital textile printer. Without them, I would have had to paint the designs myself and, with only a month to prepare, it could not have been done,” he added.
Epson’s digital textile printing technology is driven by the company’s PrecisionCoreprinthead technology, one of the fastest inkjet delivery technologies in the world. Its print nozzles deliver ultra-precise control of ink droplets for superior image sharpness across a wide range of ink and media producing outstandingly vivid and unique prints.
