Berghaus Selects Alvanon's AlvaForm Mannequins For Sizing

Berghaus, a United Kingdom-based performance apparel, footwear and equipment manufacturer, has selected New York City-based Alvanon Inc.'s AlvaForm technical fit mannequins to help it standardize the sizing and perfect the fit and design lines of its men's and women's clothing. Berghaus initially will supply the full-body fiberglass forms to its product development and design teams at its headquarters and then to its office in Hong Kong and its international supply base.

Alvanon created its EU series of AlvaForms from 3D body scans of more than 50,000 20- to 40-year old men and women in France, Germany, Holland, Italy, Russia, Spain and the United Kingdom; as well as from World Health Organization and National Health data from 17 other European countries.

The AlvaForms supplied to Berghaus will feature the Berghaus logo. They also will feature collapsible shoulders and hips and removable left legs, shoulder caps and arms; and will have soft bellies to represent the yielding properties of the human waist.
