Alvanon completes two years of fit project for Paris Opera

Alvanon has completed two years of a consultancy and fit project for the world renowned costume atelier of the Paris Opera House, one of the most important cultural institutions in France.

According to an Alvanon press release, during the project, Alvanon scanned the body shapes of more than 100 adult and child dancers from the Paris Opera Ballet and school.

The anonymous 3D body scans were used by Alvanon's team of sculptors to model and produce small, medium and large morphologically representative technical fit mannequins of male and female dancers.

“A total of 30 Alvanon forms and pattern block solutions were delivered to the Paris Opera House in time for its designers, pattern makers and sewers to create costumes for its 2015 performances,” it said.

Alvanon donated over €250,000 worth of consultancy and customised fit tools to the extraordinary project.

Benjamin Millepied, directeur de la danse of the Paris Opera House said, “The collaboration with Alvanon allowed us to identify more precisely the most common types of morphology in our dancers.”

“Our dancers are athletes - the male dancers have broad muscular shoulders, their shoulder blades are really chiseled and have pronounced posteriors and thighs with small waists,” he added.

“While, our female dancers have big rib cages and smaller busts with really defined and sloping shoulders and are a unique shape,” Millepied informed.

“The Alvanon mannequins enable us to work quickly and get our fit right first time which means less time in the fit sessions for our busy dancers,” he explained.

Janice Wang, CEO of Alvanon said, “It has turned into a passion project for us and every one of our Alvanon team loved it, from the consultants and scanners through to our 3D sculptors and workers in the factory.”

“The atelier of the Paris Opera House melds science with art and creates something beautiful and we hope our festive video conveys the magic and joy of this incredible project,” she too added.

Founded in 1661, the Academie Royale de Danse is the first of the academies established by Louis XIV, a lover of dance and himself a highly proficient dancer.

The Academie Royale de Musique, the forerunner of the Paris Opera, was founded in 1669 and boasted a troupe of musicians, singers and, for the first time, dancers – the first professional ballet dancers in history.

Created in 1713 by Louis XIV, the Conservatoire, the forerunner of the current Paris Opera Ballet School, is the oldest ballet school in the world.

Alvanon was founded in 2001 when it developed a unique and innovative data-driven approach to solving the challenges of sizing and fit inherent in the apparel industry.

Since that time it has evolved into a global consulting firm advising the world's leading apparel organisations on how to align their internal teams, processes and supply chains. (AR)
