New Look’s quality mission statement is to reinforce New Look’s ‘Value for Money’ proposition through improved and consistent quality that exceeds customer expectations.

Quality assurance is very important to New Look, through all stages of producing a garment. A product needs to meet the standards of the target customer, in order to retain customers and bring new ones into stores.

There are three key principles that New Look works with: The appearance in store, the fit of the garment and the durability of the garment.

As a Garment Technologist, the apprentinces will be involved with applying these three principles to each garment, in any deparment.
