Finding a FIT MODEL
Now for a fit model. A fit model is a human being that "fits" the clothing for a specific clothing manufacturer. When a company produces clothing to sell across the nation or globe, a fit model is employed to assist in the fit process.
Have you ever put on a top and found that you cannot move your arms? Perhaps that company did not use a fit model to check production? As a former fit model for many years, I have seen hundreds of thousands of dollars worth of merchandise returned to companies due to fit issues. A fit issue can be as simple as the tension being too tight on a sewing machine that is producing a swimsuit resulting in lack of flex for the garment. You will notice as well that most of the higher priced items fit better.
The reason for this is because the manufacturer understands that FIT is critical to re order business and sales in general. Once a garment goes to production, it is critical that the end result fits. There is no turning back after the fact.
At Peak Models & Talent we have been providing FIT models since 1997 for leading manufacturers in the Los Angeles area. Many of our models travel all over the world to ensure proper fit, resulting in the success of some of the biggest names in apparel. At this time in our economic climate, quality is going to be the only thing that sets a company apart from another. To achieve quality and fit, a fit model is the most critical aspect of producing garments that sell.
