Avatars -the new top models!

How do you ensure an optimal fit for new fashion products if no fitting model is available? With avatars! Avalution offers you the optimal digital model for the different steps of the product development process. Our fit expert Anke Rissiek talks in an interview about how avatars can keep processes running, especially during the corona crisis.

The  fit quality  is proven by  testing on  humans.  How  can avatars  contribute  in  the  current  pandemic  situation  to keep product development running? In the apparel industry, too, many people are currently working from home or are very much on their own in the office. Product developers are sent products, but cannot technically validate the fit because there is no possibility of using a fitting model. With ouravatars, which are all based on real body dimension data   from   representative   measurement   surveys,   we   can provide digital models to keep the processes running.

Which avatars are available? We  have  developed  different  technical  avatars  for  different work steps. Depending on the task a product developer faces, we can provide him with the appropriate avatar –regardless of which  3D  system  is  used.  The  3D  systems  usually  offer avatars,  but  these  are  not  realistic  enough  to  make  final decisions about the fit that should represent the typical target customer and conform the quality requirements of a brand. We offer single avatars, but also complete rows of a standard size chart or even a brand specific size chart. Here the avatars have a big advantage over a fitting on a fit model: they are available in every size, so that the complete grading can be checked in all sizes. 

What makes the avatars from Avalution stand out? Our  avatars  are  all  based  on  real  body  dimension  data  from representative measurement surveysthat we have been taking for many years, and therefore correspond to real bodies. This allows them to very realistically depict the typical body shapes of target customers, even in larger sizes or special figure types. It  is  also  possible  to  map  special  morphotypes,  i.e.  specific body  shapes  and  proportions.  The  avatars  are  prepared  in such  a  way  that  they  can  provide  the  same  fit  results  in  the virtual  fitting  as  in  the  real  model  fitting. 

They  also  have dimension   lines   that   visualize   the   position   of   the body measurements on the avatar, which probably offers the biggest difference to many other avatars available. These can provide the   product   developer   and   the   supplier   with   valuable information on where exactly they need to start with all fit areas in the case of fit problems or adjustments. This means that the fit  can  be  objectively  evaluated  and  further  developed  with them.

How can I start with an avatar – is training necessary? The avatars can be provided in a standard format (OBJ) that can be read by all common 3D systems. This means that no special training is necessary before use.
