Alvanon teams up with the BF+DA for NYC-area fashion

Nov '16
Alvanon, a global apparel business and product development consultancy, has announced that aspiring and talented fashion designers in New York City and surrounding areas are benefiting from additional tools and business consulting resources supplied by the company to the Brooklyn Fashion+Design Accelerator (BF+DA), a hub for ethical fashion and design.

The tools and resources were donated as part of Alvanon's own initiative to help restore technical skills to New York City and other global fashion hubs, including Hong Kong and London.

The BF+DA provides designers with the resources they need to transform their ideas into successful businesses. It offers a certificate in design entrepreneurship and houses a small-run factory equipped with the latest technology in garment production, 3D manufacturing and start to finish services ranging from pattern and grading to sampling.

As part of the collaboration, Alvanon, the Global Apparel Business Expert, has gifted AlvaForm fit mannequins and blocks to BF+DA's vibrant manufacturing and training facilities, along with business expertise consisting of workshops and one-on-one tutoring sessions.

Debera Johnson, executive director said, “BF+DA, Alvanon's tools and intellectual resources support the organisation's intent to “fill the gap for upcoming designers from 'made-by-designer' to 'made-by-others'. BF+DA gives designers access to production sources so they can make just 20 or 100 of something. Once they are ready, they can go to larger manufacturers. We want to provide that path for them. Our goal is to be an innovation space, from design to prototype and production, to viability to market. We are helping people accelerate to success.”

Alvanon CEO Janice Wang said, “The process of designing and the process of making are totally intertwined. At BF+DA, designers actually see the intricate work of patternmaking and sewing. They see the skills necessary to make, and the pride and satisfaction that comes from transforming a conceptual work of art into a physical reality.” (GK)
