KNITWEAR SYMPHONY 2017
Organized by the Knitwear Innovation and Design Society (KIDS), “Knitwear Symphony 2017” was held on September 8, 2017 during Hong Kong Fashion Week 2017.
Shima Seiki (Hong Kong) Ltd continuously given full support to this show since 2009.
In salute to the 55th Anniversary of Shima Seiki, Ms. Kay Chan Hau Kei, presented the new WHOLEGARMENT® activewear collection with the theme “Ever Onward” on behalf of our company, while the idea was inspired by the corporate motto.
Dynamic and structural silhouettes built by the latest seam-free Wholegarment technology, which features stylish and comfortable “second skin” fit of these training apparels. This collection filled with energetic colour, like red and orange, plus fractal/ geometric pattern. Most of the styles also weaved-in the word “Ever Onward” and our corporate name “Shima Seiki”, which motivates us to “Breakthrough”.
These jacquard patterns are stitched in brand new ‘Inlay Jacquard’ which are exclusively created by machine with loop presser such as WHOLEGARMENT®. Jacquard pattern would no longer be produced with floating yarn at the back, which makes the garment remarkably light weight, thin and soft touch.
The use of APEX 3 for this seam-free collection starts from the initial stage of design till completion. Before knitting an actual sample, designer used Design, PGM and 3Dmodeling function to create vivid ‘virtual samples’; modify the design and pattern plus check the 3D image from all angles. Time and costs associated with sample making are greatly reduced.
APEX 3 now plays an important role of design system and lead the knitwear industry to Computerization Era.
