One of the biggest issues that any designer faces when selling online is the issue of fit.  Customers want the convenience of buying straight from their device of choice but the worry that a garment won’t fit properly is definitely a concern for most.

To address that issue, designers need to get smart and crafty about putting their customer’s minds at ease.  Some will offer free returns, others will embrace technology and try new things.

One such designer is Carrie Parry, a talented emerging designer who always manages to impress us with her gorgeous designs, ethical practices, and fast growing success.  Her latest announcement is a Fit Trial and Trunkshow with Alvanon an apparel fit expert on December 5th and 6th. 

And you can be involved.
