Smart Assembly using ultrasonic technology

Intelligent textiles of any kind have to be assembled during the final production step. This means that the individual components have to be combined into a final product (e. g. a piece of clothing) using a joining technology. Here traditionally a sewing machine is used.

PFAFF Industrial has been dealing with this technology for more than 25 years.

Designer Esther Noriega presents TEMPO - Spring Summer 2016 Collection, inspired by the Muses of Music

TEMPO is a collection in movement markedly feminine, a collection that confronts adagio with allegro. A slow tempo, sensual, pulsating, a lively tempo, energetic and cheerful. The nuance of the collection pumps up the volume, without fanfare, piano or forte, and hence the woman moves to the beat of a fashion sonata. The melody is executed with defined and resounding fashion trends, merging with a cut that recreates the classicism of couture and results in a defined style that harmonizes femininity and defines the aesthetic dialogue of the designer from Valladolid, Esther Noriega.
