Heading to LA
Things are moving along! The next step in our process was to travel down to LA to meet with our denim developer. A denim developer is an expert in all things denim. They schedule fittings and work with fit models to make sure the fit is just right, and they determine where we should be adjusting the pattern to make the jeans more balanced. Our denim developer works with top labels in and around LA, so we were excited to get to work with her on this project.
Another expert we collaborated with is one of Los Angeles’ best fit models. Fit models have commonly shaped bodies that fit specific sizes perfectly. It’s their job to know all the different fits for their size on the market, and to help offer feedback on things like thigh width, pocket length, overall comfort, and anything else that could be improved before the final product is made.
The Slim-Tapered Fit
Working with the developer and fit model helped us nail down the perfect slim-tapered fit. While it’s a common silhouette, we’re building in room to make it more comfortable and functional. We took in the fabric in some places, and let it out in others. In the end, we were extremely happy with the turnout. Of course, there are small details still up in the air, but we’ll make sure and keep you posted once we bring this jean to life.
