Advice To Lift The Lid on the Fashion Industry


Headline sponsored by Freeths solicitors, our core team of six speakers will share their golden industry knowledge and the first stop on Thursday 30th of March is Manchester.

CEO of FashionCapital and Fashion Enter, Jenny Holloway, comments:

“The Devils in the Detail – contracts and what you need to know: I know early on when I had my own range Retro UK I had a naive tendency to trust everyone and think the world was full of happy shiny people.  Eventually I lost Retro to an unscrupulous third party – I’d trusted him and his word. If I had received the advice legally from Feeths at an event such as the FashionCapital Trunk Show I wouldn’t have lost the business after ten years of trading!”

Lindsey from Freeths Solicitors adds: “At the seminar I will discuss Contract Essentials – What You Need to Know: When entering into business relationships, designers need to understand who they are contracting with, how a contract can be formed, what both parties are responsible for and who carries the can if things go wrong. The devil is often in the detail, and we will highlight what you need to look out for and some of the common pitfalls for the unwary.”

Charotte from headline sponsor Freeths will also join us in Manchester.   Specialising in all aspects of employment work with particular experience in dealing with large scale collective consultations, executive terminations, multi-party tribunal claims and providing strategic advice at board level, Charlotte will explain the different types of employment status and the potential advantages and disadvantages on the 30th March.  

Joining Jenny and Lindsey will be:

Sarah Moore from headline sponsors Freeths Solicitors 

Charlotte Rees-John from headline sponsorts Freeths Solicitors 

Gabrielle Shiner-Hill textile, fashion and product developer

Deborah Shulton former Fabric Technologist for Marks & Spencer 

Rosie Davies, Director of the London Fashion Agency

FC trunk Manchester

The seminar aims to fill in all those gaps from legal advice right through to production and PR and these six highly experienced individuals will impart essential knowledge and lift that lid on the industry.

The first 3-hour seminar is scheduled for 30th March at the Manchester Art Gallery. To find out more and book a place click here.
