The 45-minute webinar will be of interest to designers, merchants, buyers, technical designers, product developers, marketers, and quality and sourcing teams seeking to harmonize creative design with fit technology in ways that deliver supply chain efficiencies and achieve shape-enhancing fit.
“Every apparel retailer or brand is faced with the dilemma of simultaneously achieving the aesthetic fit that their creative and commercial teams want, while executing the technical fit through their supply chain that will actually drive conversion and sell-throughs,” explains Alvanon President and webinar presenter Ed Gribbin.
“Our webinar will highlight best practices for aligning internal teams on the concept of fit and properly defining roles and responsibilities, while cutting costs and time to market in the process. We will discuss the platforms, practices and people requirements needed to make fit a real competitive advantage.”
Gribbin describes platforms as information management needs, practices as tools, assessment and approval protocols, and people requirements as role and responsibility definitions, as well as ongoing training and professional development.
During the Webinar, Gribbin will also address the best practices roadmap of research, fit standard optimization, forms, blocks, and grading, while touching on trends in 3-D visualization in the product development process.
Darioush Nikpour, vice president of product management, Yunique Solutions, will discuss the elements of implementing and utilizing an information management platform that is accurate, current, transparent and accessible, real-time, across the globe. Nikpour will also address the critical “people component” of successful solution implementation.
