Hemster is a first-of-its-kind on-demand tailoring service that helps people feel more comfortable in their own clothes by offering alterations at participating retailers and brand stores, as well as through at-home appointments. After using the tailoring service for the first time, a customer's perfect fit data is stored and kept on record so that new measurements do not need to be taken each time an adjustment is needed.
Diane von Furstenberg, Outdoor Voices and Alo Yoga are the first brands to offer Hemster's on-demand tailoring service to their customers.
Hemster's model aims to disrupt the tailoring industry in North America by drawing upon practices from other cultures. As Hemster CEO and Founder Allison Lee describes, "I grew up in South Korea, where shoppers typically find the correct size based on weight first and where tailoring is expected, even with budget options."
