Natalia Allen Knitwear is All One Piece #WearableWednesday

NATALIA ALLEN

Designer Spotlight: Natalia Allen A Pioneer In Wearable Technology on Forbes.com:

New York City designer Natalia Allen uses robots to create seamless, high quality dresses for professional women and is revolutionizing the manufacturing process to create zero waste along the way.

After graduating from Parsons School of Design as designer of the year, Natalia founded Design Futurist, a design consulting firm that created innovative products for global brands like Calvin Klein, Donna Karan, Dupont and P&G, before launching her own fashion-forward company, Natalia Allen.

DS: The dresses in your Natalia Allen collection have no seams; how are they constructed? What are the benefits of your manufacturing process?

Natalia: We program robots to manufacture the dresses seamlessly. Rather than cut and sew or knit and link, our robots stitch the entire dress in one-step.

The streamline process saves lots of fuel, energy waste; it also improves the working conditions for factory workers while making great clothes.

As a brand we value simplicity, oneness, and continuity. The innovative process mirrors our approach to design and life.
