PureLondon | 22 - 24 Luglio 2018 Olympia London – Area Origin

Dyloan Studio took part at the last edition of PureLondon. It was from 22nd to 24th July at the event space Olympia in London.


The Technology Ambassador Loreto Di Rienzo talked in the seminar called "Shaping" in the framework of the PureLondon calendar. This speech dealt the thermoshaping.


Shaping refers about the possibility to give three-dimensional to fabrics or knits which are usually two-dimensional.

The three-dimensional is obtained through the heat of materials upon which are impressed a decorative pattern or shape thanks to a mould. After that, the cooling produce definitely the forming.


The thermoshaping can develop three different solutions: fabrics and knits with three-dimensional surfaces which are created thanks to a mould; accessories, garment or parts of them are realized with a mould. In this framework, there are the three-dimensional structures, the are fabrics or knits, build manually to create clothes or accessories.


This new modelling fabric technique builds volumes and structures unreleased, extending the possibilities for every designer in accordance with innovative modality.
