A fit model is a person who is used by a clothing manufacturer or a fashion designer to check the fit, dress and visual appearance of a design on a ‘real’ human being, acting as a live mannequin. They must have balanced, and symmetrical bodies with standard size measurements for their category. Must be able to verbalize the fit issues they feel in garments which are integral to creating clothing that fits properly.
They must be able to give accurate feedback to the designers to help companies. Many designers have a long-lasting relation with these fit models. They tend to use the same models so that they know exactly what the designer is looking for. It is a tedious job but a rather important one.
