Jun '14
Alvanon, the global fashion industry’s foremost apparel sizing and fit expert has announced that it is going to launch a new virtual fit form avatar based on its world leading AlvaForm technical fit mannequins.
 
The new Virtual AlvaForm will be compatible with multiple 3D fashion design and prototype development systems and will enable garment designers and technologists to create, develop, fit and share their designs on avatars that are an accurate match to their brand’s target consumer population. 
 
The Virtual AlvaForm avatar will be available from 1st September 2014 and will be an exact 3D representation of Alvanon’s widely used physical AlvaForm technical fit mannequins. Used in conjunction with the advanced functionalities of leading 3D fashion design and prototype development systems, Virtual AlvaForms will further increase the speed of the design to market process while yielding significant savings in physical fittings and sampling. Crucially the Virtual AlvaForms will also help garment suppliers apply an accurate fit and size standard consistently across the entire supply chain regardless of location.  
 
Alvanon’s Virtual AlvaForms will be used in conjunction with physical AlvaForms to implement consistency in fit and sizing at every level of the design, development, production and quality process.  Garment designs will be fitted on the Virtual AlvaForms, manipulated and edited in the 3D design environments, and shared across the supply chain to ensure everyone has the same fit intentions and information. 
 
Jason Wang, co-founder and chief operating officer, Alvanon explained, “Alvanon has over 50,000 physical AlvaForms in the world’s top apparel brands and retailers across 89 countries.  We have used our specialist knowledge of human morphology and form development to create our physical forms and have applied that same expertise to developing our new 3D avatar technology.” He added: “We are delighted that our Virtual AlvaForms will be available to the increasingly technologically savvy global fashion industry and are looking forward to working with our clients and their 3D fashion design and development system providers.”
