A fit model is responsible for representing a brands physical fit based on target customer for body measurements, shape, proportion and means. As the model I fit garments throughout the production lifecycle providing feedback on fit, function and comfort based on objective customer expectation. This includes modeling clothing/accessories in the evaluation of aesthetic fit, technical fit and/or being active in testing the functional fit of garments/accessories during prototyping stages. There is a lot of travel involved between clients, so maintaining an organized schedule and communications is crucial. Great fit models are required to have excellent people skills, communication skills, and be able articulate how garments fit, feel, and perform. Fittings can go for hours in front of large groups of people so communicating consistent and effective feedback in a timely manner is always my goal.
Staying physically fit and on spec to my target key body measurements is important to ensure fit consistency. Maintaining specs and weight are always a big part of my lifestyle choices. I surf, rock climb, practice yoga, and snowboard as well as balance workouts to maintain consistency. I have a body form that I make available to my customers for side by side comparisons, quick checks between fittings and quality control at factories.
