Swedroe’s Jan. 24 session at EFI Connect will also feature a fashion show with some of her creations, along with samples showing how up-and-coming designers innovate using leading-edge, streamlined digital production technologies like EFI Reggiani textile inkjet printers.
She got the idea to print her artist grandfather Robert Swedroe's collage designs onto fabric.
“Even though I have been involved in fashion design for some time, I still have a great deal to learn,” Swedroe said. “Attending EFI Connect will allow me to learn about the latest trends in digital textile printing and the software tools that make designing faster and easier, helping to unleash even more creativity.”
“Not only are we dedicated to advancing the analog-to-digital transformation in textiles and apparel with our suite of textile-related solutions, but we are delighted to be able to shine a light on the great work that is being done by Gen Z-ers, such as Ariel, to transform this important market, building profitable businesses based on digital technologies,” said Frank Mallozzi, chief revenue officer, EFI.
Swedroe, 15, will be interviewed by Cary Sherburne, senior editor of WhatTheyThink.
Connect 2019 will bring print professionals from across the globe to Las Vegas for in-depth, informative training and education on key printing and packaging management and technology challenges.
