Bodi.Me is honoured won for the second consecutive year, the Best Application of Innovative Technology award from the Professional Clothing Industry Association Worldwide (PCIAW).
Bodi.Me has won Best Application of Innovative Technology at the PCIAW Awards for the second year running for new applications of its Size-Me sustainable fashion fit platform.
Size-Me’s integration into made-on-demand (MOD) and made-to-measure (MTM) processes enables companies to quickly and cheaply make small batches of quality clothing in production facilities closer to home, greatly reducing returns, overproduction and overstock.
The integration enables the extrapolation of all the required measures for a MOD or MTM garment with just a few clicks using a short, intuitive Size-Me questionnaire. Size-Me has already been successfully tested with Gerber’s made-to-measure software AccuMark.
This technology can be used by fashion businesses or at scale by the uniform industry to kit out thousands of wearers in perfectly fitting garments, drastically reducing waste, returns, and rollout times and delivering return on investment.
McKinsey and the GFA Fashion climate report 2020 state that reducing garment returns by 20% would produce a US$400 of direct cost saving per every tCO2e abated, with an average of 10m tCO2e per year. The same report showed that a 10% reduction in overproduction could produce a US$350 of direct cost saving per every tCO2e abated, with an average of 150m tCO2e per year.
‘Our Size-Me technology can have an immediate financial and sustainable benefit for businesses,’ said Lara Mazzoni, CEO and co-founder of Bodi.Me. ‘Our clients see a direct saving of a minimum of £10 for every £2 invested in our technology, and this is does not even take into account savings on the cost and CO2e of shipping returned garments.’
