On hand to answer all questions and assist over the two days our team, which consisted of Jenni Sutton (Development Manager), Rebekah Litherland (Marketing Assistant), Rosie Holden (Assistant Studio Manager), Eve Meridith (Pattern Cutter), Chelsea (Apprentice) and Theodora (Apprentice), were more than happy to help and spoke to a wide range of guests all with queries surrounding manufacturing, sampling and our studio services.  CEO of Fashion Enter, Jenny Holloway also attended on the first day, where she hosted numerous mini-workshops at our Consultation Corner!

“The concept of the show is to provide guests with the opportunity to meet suppliers providing manufacturing services.”

Workshops held in our corner included How to work with the right manufacturer, how to finance your collection, how to create your collection, how to use FashionCapital to help your business and how fashion Enter can help your business succeed.  With a full house at each workshop, Jenny, Jenni and Rosie filled guests with knowledge and support, answering any questions they had. On Wednesday the team welcomed special guest, founder of London Fashion Agency Rosie, who gave a snippet into the seminar being held at the factory next week!

Stitching Academy students and Fashion Technology Academy apprentices also participated in the event, showcasing their skills using industrial machines and overlockers.  Answering any questions surrounding their education and helping with our seminar that discussed why a company should hire an apprentice, many were left feeling inspired.  Ldny apprentice Theodora also demonstrated how a jack-it-bag, which are manufactured in our studio, works.

Jenny Holloway discussed Sustainability as the New Norm with Tamsin Lejeune, MD of Ethical Fashion Forum, Catarina Midby, Sustainability Manager for H&M UK and Harold Tillman, CBE. The group discussed what sustainability means and how brands can help manufacturers with ethical production. Jenny highlighted: “fast fashion does not mean cheap fashion” and that “communication is key” also adding, “there is no better time to come to the UK than now.”  Following her talk, the Evening Standard featured Fashion Enter in an article post-event which you can read here.
