The basic form of the sewing machine, which developed from the hand- and treadle drive, has not changed for the last 150 years. But times have changed, standardized fashion stores are out and home sourcing is back. So it is high time to move on in sewing machine history.
The Fashion Suite consists of a sewing head which hangs down from the ceiling on a robot arm, an interactive sewing table and a software. The system includes a body scanner, software which can adapt every cut to the favored body, a special laser which cuts the parts out of a piece of cloth, and software that gives sewing instructions, until the garment is finished.
The PFSuite enables everybody to make his own individual clothes customized for the own body size and shape, and it also optically transforms every room into a professional fashion studio.
