Abstract

Fashion is something beyond a normal approach with no limits to the permutations that one can think in terms of designing. Fashion, which represents the innovations of designers, brings forth revolution to the fashion world. The development of new technologies that are then applied to fashion offer opportunities for the industry to adapt to the multiple and ever changing lifestyles that redefine how we think about a design, and the manufacture and consumption of fashion. In the fashion world, not only designers but also scientists are experimenting and exploring with new ways to replace the traditional methods of garment construction with the use of sewing machines, and needle and thread. This paper will produce strong evidence to support the use of ultrasonic technology as an alternative for seaming.
