Alvanon Launches AlvaForm Studio Mannequin

Body fit solutions developer Alvanon Inc., New York City, has launched AlvaForm Studio — a garment sizing and fit tool designed for small companies, designers, fashion students and garment makers.

Based on the company's latest ASTM US Missy Standard generated from 3-D body scans of U.S. consumers, the AlvaForm Studio technical fit mannequin features realistic human body shape, posture and balance; and is suitable for pattern making, draping and fitting. Available in both dress and torso form, the mannequin is made of soft memory foam wrapped in a stretch cotton weave. The forms offer measurement lines for the chest, under the bust, high hip and low hip to help identify critical measurement points for garment fit accuracy; and come with premium metal stands featuring a counter-balance spring design, large wheels and foot locks.

AlvaForm now offers the tool in the United States and Canada, and plans to launch a European shape equivalent later this year.
