Alvanon, a global apparel business and product development consultancy, has named sustainable, high-fashion label Studio JUX to its prestigious Dr. Kenneth Wang Mentorship Program, which mentors emerging brands and design talent and awards the winner a two-year mentorship with Alvanon’s leading apparel experts to help pave a sustainable path to success.

The announcement was made by Alvanon’s CEO, Janice Wang. Under the program, Alvanon will strengthen Studio JUX’s existing business competence with statistical sizing data, technical design tools and training in key areas of the art and science of fashion, including production, supply chain issues, fit, marketing, and sales.

Wang said, “Studio JUX is a perfect candidate for our mentoring program. As an industry, we have to develop new business models and solutions that can solve the massive challenges we face. Sustainability and responsible innovation are already at the core of the very way they think, act and work. Profits from their thoughtful business plan will be invested in programs in those same communities where the factories are located. These will provide skills training, personal development programs and apprenticeships that help get people into skilled work in the textile and garment industry.”

Jitske Lundgren, founder of Studio JUX said, “Alvanon has an incredible wealth of knowledge, scientific data, and experience and it’s not limited to design or production. Their expertise covers virtually every aspect of the business of fashion. As a social enterprise, it’s our mission to successfully run a sustainable ethical fashion and lifestyle brand. To us ‘success’ means growth for everyone involved in the value chain: our employees, key suppliers, customers, lenders and shareholders. It’s in our DNA and Alvanon’s mentoring will help us prove that growth and sustainability are not opposing ideas.”

Katinka van Beveren, Alvanon’s lead consultant said, “We are so proud to have partnered with Studio JUX. As an industry, we need to develop new ways of thinking in order to lead the push towards a more sustainable economy. Studio JUX has the potential to be such an innovator, working proactively to address critical environmental, social and ethical challenges on a global scale.” (GK)
