Speeding up
design to market

Alvanon, the global apparel business expert, has developed a new virtual fit form avatar that accurately represents the 3D body shape of a specific brand’s or retailer's target consumer population. Compatible with multiple 3D fashion design and prototype development systems. It enables apparel companies to significantly increase the design to market speed while yielding significant savings in physical fittings and sampling.  

When used in conjunction with leading 3D fashion design and prototype development systems, the virtual form enables garment designers and technologists to create, develop, fit and share their designs with their internal teams and supply chain partners.
