The Laser Cut Fabric and Zac Posen collaboration:

If you haven’t heard of Zac Posen then you’ve been living under a rock. After his big break in 2000 this designer has been all over the fashion charts with lines hitting the runway to lines hitting the Target shelves. In 2008 Laser Cut Fabric as a part of Laser Cutting Shapes got the honor to be able to work with Zac Posen to cut pieces for his Spring/Summer collection.

There are many benefits to laser cutting that designers take advantage of, such as the unique ability to cut intricate patterns and the fact that does not have to sew the edges because the laser seals them.

Below are the three dresses that Zac Posen had laser cut with Laser Cut Fabric.

If you are a more visual person (aren’t we all) you can also watch the dresses in action during this Zac Posen Spring/Summer 2008 show video. The dresses featured at 1:05, 3:09 and 3:32

Laser Cut Neoprene Dress for Michael Angel

One Designer we have had the pleasure of working with is Michael Angel. He is a designer that has been “garnering industry-wide attention for pioneering the use of digital prints.”

The dress we laser cut for Michael Angel

This is in a way very reflective of how laser cutting is entering the fashion industry and using computerized, robotic methods to create beautiful designs.  The dress we cut for Michael Angel was for his Fall/Winter 2010 collection.

What is even more interesting about this dress is that it is cut from Neoprene. Neoprene is usually used for things like laptop sleeves, orthopedic braces, gaskets, hoses, corrosion resistant coatings and in aquatics, but not usually high fashion! Micheal Angel says of his work that he has “focused on translating digital print onto unexpected fabrics…pushing the boundaries of what we can print on – engineering fabrics and experimenting with application,” and that is exactly what laser cutting on neoprene was able to do!

You can see the dress in action on the runways as part of his collection in THIS VIDEO, the dress we cut is featured at 2:32.
