Swimwear, lingeries is one of the trend segments in the fashion industry, but individual patterns are still rare. This is why Nadia Schiller, a student at the Niederrhein University, wrote her diploma thesis on the subject. She designed a swim and leisurewear collection for the C&A fashion group. The colourful models were produced using digital printing.
Modern printing processes open new creative possibilities to designers, limited colour concepts are a thing of the past, and manufacture even of small runs is possible at limited cost. State-of-the-art techniques and applications will also once again be on show at viscom, International Trade Fair for Visual Communication, Technology and Design from 13 to 15 October 2011 in Düsseldorf. About 11,000 trade visitors, many of them experts from the processing industries such as textile and fashion are expected. One of the exhibitors is Niederrhein University.
