Quality Fashion Advice from the Experts!
With a combined experience that spans 86 years the three fashion experts are here to help you with specific advice from the way you work with other people to finance, outsourcing and production.
“This is such an important part of our journey with our business and I am so glad we found Fashion Enter. The advice is always honest and pertinent and so far we have saved valuable time and money on sourcing costs and also FashionCapital encourages NOT to spend money on copious amounts of patterns. It’s heartwarming that in these difficult times we have Fashion Enter behind us who cares and are there for us.” Michaela Jedinak from Joy of Clothes

However, advice can be expensive and that’s why the three fashion experts have combined together to create a free webinar session on 17th September at 7pm entitled “The Shoebox Start-up”. This is a unique opportunity to ask the questions that will help you with your business. This free one hour webinar will allow you to network with like-minded individuals – a problem shared is most certainly a problem halved.
Hosted by Annabel Kaye (Director of Irenicon Ltd) and Jenny Tolmie, (Partner of Griffin Stone Moscrop & Co.) with Jenny Holloway CEO Fashion Enter they will be talking about simple but highly effective ways to get yourself on track with sound financial advice and employment law that is mandatory! Prevention is always better than cure.
There will be free downloads available during each webinar and we will deal with live questions and chat ‘real time to delegates – this is not going to be a broadcast. Replays will be available for a limited period only.
