New York – December 12th, 2017  Alvanon, the industry’s leading fit expert, has launched a new dedicated course aimed at helping brands and retailers navigate the world of 3D. The new ‘3D PDS’ is the latest addition to Alvanon’s acclaimed Professional Development Series (PDS) of classes.

The 3D course will be delivered by Alvanon consultants who have accumulated expertise of 3D best practices from the global apparel industry’s most successful and innovative companies.

At Alvanon, we know that brands are in different places in their journey towards 3D proficiency,” said Ed Gribbin, president at Alvanon. “Whether you’re just getting started and developing a 3D strategy, choosing the right software or already on your way and committed to 3D, it’s easy to derail if you haven’t anticipated all the things that you may encounter along the way when it comes to people, processes and the technology.”

Alvanon will remain software independent. It will work with all leading 3D software providers, including Optitex, Browzwear, Clo3D, Gerber, Lectra, Tukatech and Assyst in order to support its diverse client base who have already committed to a particular 3D software platform.

The 3D course is the latest addition to the modules already on offer which included Apparel Costing 101 and Sustainability 101 among others. Each module is designed to provide the audience with vital information and world-class insight intended to enrich professionals with the knowledge to do their jobs better making Alvanon’s Professional Development Series one of the global apparel industry’s leading training and development domain providers.
