Happy Year of the Pig! 豬籠入水!
In Chinese, this four-character New Year’s greeting literally means “Pig Cages Let Water In”; it is a metaphor for wealth and prosperity, or in short, Let the Money Flow!
This year of the pig, we have three new launches and collabs to get excited about:
- BODY TECHNOLOGY– We want to help make the transition into the digital supply chain using 3D digital design a reality – and so we enhanced over 6,000 of our 3D avatars and size sets to work on all collaborating 3D software systems. We created the Alvanon Body Platform – a secure, digital hub we anticipate will become the cornerstone of a digitally-saturated supply chain. We have also invested heavily in AI and machine learning to enhance our parametric body technology.
- THE FUTURE OF WORK– Motif.org was launched to bridge the apparel skills gap and give access to training, professional development and mentorship. We urge ALL apparel professionals in the industry to commit to a life of continuous learning – contact MOTIF about sponsorship, content collaboration, enrollment, participation or by spreading the word – every little bit helps!
- SCANNING A GLOBAL POPULATION– We are embarking on a huge endeavour to make sure we have every type of body in our database with our GBRI initiative. The more we scan, the better we understand human morphology and biometrics, the more precise we can make sizing. This year, we will be launching many new regional fit standards based on our current research. Please help us – we are constantly looking for partners for scan projects.
Our landscape is complex and fast changing but offers huge opportunity for a sustainable future, if we can only retain knowledge, innovate and embrace technology whilst constantly adapting.
Wishing you and your families health, good fortune & happiness.
