These have been installed across its product development departments at its head office in Istanbul, registered offices in Bangladesh and China, and key garment manufacturing suppliers worldwide.

Simon Fernandes from Alvanon said, “LC Waikiki was one of the first major retail brands in Eurasia to commit to a clearly defined and consistent sizing and fit strategy.”

“By using AlvaForms across its product development disciplines, its design and technical professionals can share their size and fit standard with key suppliers thereby streamlining the process,” Fernandes added.
