ALVANON GLOBAL, 3 April, 2023 - Alvanon, the world’s leading sizing and fit technology company, is delighted to announce a new UK-based Alvanon Fit Studio in collaboration with Fashion-Enter Ltd and its learning and studio facility–the Fashion Capital Designer Workspace.
Located in Islington, London, inside Fashion-Enter’s Fashion Capital Designer Workspace, the new Alvanon Fit Studio provides access to the most advanced apparel sizing and fit tools for both emerging and established brands.
Inside the Fit Studio, designers and pattern makers for both emerging and established brands have the technology they need to test their garments on full form physical mannequins in a safe and private space, ensuring their collections achieve the best possible fit for their target demographic.
Janice Wang, CEO, Alvanon explained: “Alvanon has always supported the creative and sustainable approach in which Jenny and the Fashion-Enter team work. By being in the FC Designer Workspace, we can bring our advanced technical sizing and fit tools to emerging designers, as well as showcase the practical sampling and production capabilities of Fashion-Enter’s exemplary manufacturing enterprise to our established retailer and brand clients.”
Featuring a full line-up of Alvanon’s European Standard fit forms* (available in men’s, women’s, and children's), the studio can be rented by brands looking to test their fit standards, or used by designers seeking forms that represent realistic body shapes. The Fit Studio will also support Fashion-Enter’s continuing programme of technical skills training, development and education.
Fashion-Enter Ltd CEO Jenny Holloway added: “We have been using Alvanon forms for many years as they provide the accuracy of fit we need both for teaching and commercial garment manufacturing. Alvanon has always been very supportive of our learners and new brands donating forms for our Stitching Academy in 2018 and we are delighted that we can now offer a state of the art Fit Studio to our FC Designer Workspace. This is brilliant news for everyone involved at the FCDW.”
Alvanon has Fit Studios in Dusseldorf, Hong Kong, New York and Shanghai. The company has worked with Fashion-Enter Ltd on previous occasions and both are aligned to providing support, growth and opportunity to those that need it in the fashion sector.
