The vision for vFit.
Founders background, the role of team and coming together.
I speak with Savanna Leavitt, Co-Founder, and her other four Co-Founders of vFit an online shopping technology for shoppers. Savanna is a student enrolled in the Biomedical Engineering program at Drexel University with a focus on Biomechanics and Human Performance. She was raised in a very rural area of Maine. Savannah’s mother is entrepreneurial and runs her very own beauty salon with a line of makeup she has branded, Savannah learned a great deal about entrepreneurship and being passionate about what you do from her mom. Savannah has always been intrigued by the sciences and how things worked and she found her interested in a medical degree at a young age, that’s when she discovered biomedical engineering and as they say she was hooked. Since beginning at Drexel, her interest grows in her major. She feels blessed to have been given the opportunity to work with this diverse group of individuals for the development of vFit. The idea is something the group of five co-Founders has dreamt about since they were young, and now the excitement rises as they will bring their idea to the public for use. You should all keep up with their progress of the online shopping design and technology for shoppers like you.
The CMO will be overseeing the marketing, graphics and client relations department. This role guarantees that the application is well advertised, designed as well as aesthetically pleasing and maintains a rock solid reputation for meeting the user’s criteria.

vFit: sizing charts, online shopper, guessing the size of clothes across different brands and styles. the best way to decide on an article clothing is to try it on, and let’s be honest trying on clothing can be exhausting and impossible if you’re buying online! has recognized the frustration most people feel when it comes to choosing the right size and style and is trying to change that.
create 3D models of human bodies, technology will use the anthropometric dimensions of the user and create an avatar like a model
The idea is to help resolve a problem:
Use existing photographic technology to create realistic images with legitimate dimensions.
With these images create three-dimensional models of an individual’s body from the accurate photographs taken
Create holographic projectable images with the 3D models.
Long-term beyond 10-week span
Create a better shopping experience
Save customer time and trouble
The vFit design will use body scanning technology to scan the body of the user and create a 3D model of it along with dimensions. By using this technology the user will be able to project the holographic image into a mirror to display how an article of clothing will appear in one’s body.
With this technology, the process of trying on clothing can be properly simulated to make it more efficient for the online shoppers. With the time spent shopping in stores greatly decreasing, online shopping will be more user-friendly with the technology available to be able to simulate trying clothing on from home. vFit is expected to make the process of finding a clothing size easier as the sizes in stock and best fit for the body dimension projected will be provided. So, if you are tired of non-fitting clothes and constant returns, this is the right solution for you, a stress-free experience!
vFit is the revolutionary new application that will change the way people shop forever. Have you ever ordered clothing online and then received it in the mail only to find out it wasn’t what you thought it would be or just didn’t fit in general? Or have you ever been in the store and unsure if you should purchase something because you didn’t know what it would look like paired with something you already owned? Well vFit can do all that for you. Using virtual reality and metrics software this app can tell you exactly what that cute sweater will look like on you, because we are not using avatars, but instead take a video or picture of yourself and that piece of clothing will be displayed so you can see yourself from all angles and have confidence that what you are buying online will look the same when you receive it at home. Not to mention you can browse multiple catalogs and mix and match it with clothing that already exists in your closet. Never be afraid to buy clothes online again with vFit.

She is currently studying Biomedical Engineering at Drexel University with a concentration in Tissue Engineering. Always been fascinated by science and technology. Since I was very young I wondered how the heart pounds continuously and how the brain can control the body and make it function. With the years passing, the interest for science grew even more, especially when she was first introduced to Biology and Chemistry. That was the point when she started to realize that she loves studying the human body and serving the society by developing technology that would help people live a better life. Being part of a project like vFit she says is very exciting to her because it is a technology that she has always wanted to have access to, so why not create one!

Joti Saha, Co-Founder: freshman enrolled in the Biomedical Engineering program at Drexel University. She plans to major in Biomechanics and Human Performance. Born in Brooklyn, New York and moved to a small suburb outside of the Philly area at a young age. She is passionate about dance and trained in an Indian classical dance form, called Bharatnatyam, for ten years. Her team fundraised for underprivileged kids in India with their annual charity shows. This experience has brought me closer to my future aspiration of making a difference in the world and helping others. Aside from dance, I became fascinated with math and science during my years in middle school. Around that time, my dad was diagnosed with cardiomyopathy and needed a pacemaker implant. The surgery was successful and he gradually recovered. Since then, the marvels of this heroic device forever piqued my interest. With more research, I found a deeper appreciation for the amount of time and effort put into this intricate, yet small device. It was fate when I discovered biomedical engineering. During my time here at Drexel University, I have become more aware of global and household problems. With that being said, I look forward to developing vFit with my team and eager to see where this project will take us. I hope you find our design useful and interesting.

Ada Wang, Co-Founder: currently a freshman enrolled in the College of Engineering program at Drexel University with a focus on Mechanical Engineering. She was born in Newburgh, New York and moved to a very suburban area in Lancaster, PA. Growing up she enjoyed watching and playing sports, such as basketball, soccer, baseball, tennis, and golf. Her parents are co-owners of a Chinese restaurant. Because this was a family business, Ada grew up at a very fast age, mentally. Through the work experience and through the constant hardship that her parents had to suffer, as well as the fact they did not have the option to go to college, she fully devoted myself to take advantage of the opportunity to go to school and to choose a major that I felt fulfilled not only my interest in designing but also to make my parents proud. Through the courses that she has taken at Drexel, Ada slowly begun to find what really made her special and thus given the amazing opportunity to attend college, she also feels truly blessed to have met such an amazing group of women engineers who not only share the same passion as her but as excited to present their design: vFit. So join them on a journey that will change the way you shop today!

While some may consider shopping to be one of their favorite hobbies, others dread just the mere thought of being in a department store for more than 5 minutes. Over the years, online shopping has provided some relief to those who hate stepping into the mall; however, it has yet to fully satisfy all of its customers. With over 25% of all items bought online, returned, nearly 80% of that being clothing, it seems as if trying to pick a size on an article of clothing shouldn’t have to be a gamble for your money. With the wide variety in sizing charts among different brands, some with more generous size charts and others less so, it is almost impossible for an online shopper to feel confident guessing the right size across different brands and styles. Not to mention, in-store shopping can take up too much time and energy. But if there was a mobile application that ensures both fit and quality, would you believe it? LAWKS Graphics is proud to introduce vFit, an application designed to accommodate the needs of consumers and the gap within the clothing industry. As of today, there are virtually no applications that allow an individual to see how a piece of clothing would look on them in real time. vFit brings the live shopping experience to you, whether it be in the office, home or public. vFit is the way the next generation will shop. *
