New York based Alvanon, the global apparel business expert, has entered into a Fit Movement partnership with the Parsons School of Design. The partnership provides students enrolled in selected programs with advanced industry fit tools used in product development for the purpose of creating a state of the art learning environment for emerging designers, it said in a press release.

“Parson's vision incorporates values such as collaborative methods, pioneering uses of technology and experimentation,” said Alvanon CEO Janice Wang. “These are concepts that thoroughly reflect Alvanon's view of mentorship and education. We are natural partners, and Alvanon is delighted to support one of New York City's elite educational institutions with world class technical tools.”

Parsons' Master of Fine Arts Fashion Design and Society program is led by director Shelley Fox. The graduate program, begun with the support of Parsons alumna Donna Karan, trains a select group of designers to view fashion from a global perspective, and to address issues such as global production and distribution, as well as the social and ecological effects of fashion.

Alvanon equipped Parsons' MFA program with a full complement of AlvaForm fit mannequins. In addition, the company sponsors the BFA in Fashion Design program by organizing a discount program, supplying Half-Scale AlvaForm mannequins annually to over 300 Parsons faculty members, graduate students and undergraduates for use in their classes. The Half-Scale AlvaForm is an invaluable educational tool that has been adopted as the standard for their curriculum.

“Our students need to be working with high level equipment so that they are equipped to work with the best when they enter the industry,” said Fox. “The AlvaForms are a prime example. They will enable our students to create fashion that fits at the highest professional level.” (SH)
