A fitting model's job is to try on garments to allow the designer to observe the garments on real people and to provide feedback about issues such as comfort.
While doing a fitting may be less glamorous than walking runways or posing for fashion spreads, fitting jobs tend to be easier to do more than high-profile modelling work and are usually also less time-consuming. Generally, there is no special training required to become a fitting model, although candidates may need a portfolio and usually must conform to the body measurements called for by specific jobs.
After putting on each garment, the fitting model may be asked to stand still so the designer can observe the piece’s fit. She may also be asked to walk around so the designer can take note of any issues like bunching that may occur with movement. Additionally, she may be asked to comment on issues such as a garment’s comfort and most importantly how she feels in the garment.
