Fashion Fit For A King


Newsletter 3rd May 2023

Achieving the Perfect Fit

When it comes to well-made, quality clothing the importance of achieving a perfect fit is imperative. That’s why we, at Fashion-Enter Ltd, were thrilled when Alvanon, the world’s leading sizing and fit technology company, decided to base their London Fit Studio with us at the FC Designer Workspace.

The state-of-the-art Fit Studio offers a full line-up of Alvanon’s European Standard fit forms, available in men’s, women’s, and children’s, and the studio is available to rent by brands and designers looking to test their fit standards.
