Takko Fashion opts for the new SizeGERMANY fashion manikins
Apparel size & fit to be improved
Soft inserts in the chest, abdomen, hips and buttocks are the main features of the new SizeGERMANY fashion manikins — and they significantly facilitate the fitting and size & fit checking of apparel. Takko Fashion was also able to confirm this in recent weeks and has again expanded its range with two more fashion manikins. “The features of the new fashion manikins busts are very flexible. They are available either as full-body, torso or lower body fashion manikins, with optional rotating arms and with a height-adjustable metal stand or head. More important for us, however, is that the dimensions of the fashion manikins correspond exactly to those in the SizeGERMANY table of sizes — something which is clearly illustrated by corresponding dimension lines on the manikin itself. This means we can ensure — as early as the product development stage — that apparel in a specific size will actually fit our customers later”, says Michaela Beck, who is responsible for designs at Takko Fashion’s Quality Assurance Division.
The new fashion manikins are based on the 3D avatars which are in turn created on the basis of the serial measurement results — and the avatars’ dimensions match those of the SizeGERMANY sizes table exactly. The first available sizes are 36, 38, 42, 46, 50 and 54 for ladies’ wear, 50 and 54 for menswear and 152 and 140 for children’s apparel.
The new SizeGERMANY fashion manikins can be ordered by all interested companies, even if they are not SizeGERMANY partners.
