Light Amplification by Stimulated Emission of Radiation (Laser). Lasers are being used in apparel industry from 19th century.
Recently the use of laser in apparel industry is increasing in cutting garment patterns, designer cutting and engraving leather etc. Reasons
for the increasing use of lasers in the apparel industry range from lowering cost to process, flexibility and even anti-counterfeiting. This
review paper presents the recent advances in laser technologies with applications to the fashion and apparel industry. Laser welding may be
an alternative joining technique for fabrics as it enables much higher seam strengths than ultrasonic welding. Now the age of fading of
denim by sandblasting is becoming older as the new technology of laser fading is replacing it .This review will concentrate on some of the
new approaches in the laser technology like, 3D body scanning, pattern marking and cutting, denim fading, laser engraving, welding of
garments , barcode scanning . Also goes through the hazards by the laser and their control measures. In order to successfully introduce laser
in fashion there is a need for a multitude of methodologies. Areas like technologies, and a proper usage of laser, need to be combined in
order to transform technology into a meaningful form of use. This paper discuss about the application of laser technology to human clothing
provision and way for its implementation of this technology in the future, i.e. future direction of laser technology.
