Alvanon Takes 3D Design to Next Level with New Digital Body Platform
NEW YORK – Alvanon, is taking the use of 3D digital design to the next level with the launch of the Alvanon Body Platform (ABP). ABP is a new and secure cloud database offering 3D fit standards for the global apparel industry. In its first iteration, apparel design and development teams will be able to access Alvanon’s vast library of over 6,000 virtual AlvaForms (3D avatars). Operating on all collaborating 3D software systems*, ABP will provide a fast, accurate, simple and secure way for brands and retailers to access and share their 3D fit and core body standards with their supply chain.
Introducing the Alvanon Body Platform
“At Alvanon, we believe that the 3D journey begins with the avatar. Not just any avatar, but the fit standard that represents the brand’s target customers’ body shapes and sizes,” explained Jason Wang, chief operating officer, Alvanon. “In recent, years, we’ve seen a huge increase for client bodies in the form of 3D virtual AlvaForms. The Alvanon Body Platform has been developed by our technology teams to specifically meet the fashion industry’s 3D digital design needs. Through collaboration with major 3D software companies, we have developed a seamless and secure digital avatar while providing the fit accuracy that brands and retailers require.”
Stephen Sze, director of software engineering, Alvanon concluded: “This is just the beginning for the virtual AlvaForm. This launch marks a new era for retail innovation – the use of 3D digital design allows brands to create realistic prototypes in a variety of different styles without having to actually make them: eliminating huge amounts of waste each year. ABP is the starting point for that 3D journey.”
Alvanon’s R&D team invited a select group of apparel professionals throughout the fashion industry including such brands as American Eagle Outfitters, Express, J. Crew, Kohl’s, Lucky Brands, Lululemon, Napapijri, Talbots and Under Armour, to beta test the platform and user experience.
