ASOS and The Prince’s Trust visit Fashion Enter
28 young people from the ASOS – Get Started with Fashion programme toured the factory to gain an insight into the production process.
The group had a full-on week, learning about various pathways into fashion, from magazine editing to designing to styling. The programme aimed to educate young people on the various routes and how to prepare for the working world through a series of workshops and educational visits.
Treated to a full day at ASOS head office, the young people began learning about appropriate skills and techniques to putting together a CV before paying Fashion Enter a visit to get an insight to British manufacturing and training opportunities.
On the 21st May, the group met with a number of staff at Fashion Enter including Development Manager Jenni Sutton, who gave an insight to the company and the different training opportunities available to get into the fashion industry, before meeting with Director Jenny Holloway who conducted a guided tour of The Factory, explaining in-depth the garment lifecycle. There were also able to meet with skilled machinist Jadwiga Karska who spoke about the running of her business and the potential opportunity she may have in taking on an apprentice. The students were then given the opportunity to walk through the factory, meet staff and ask questions on each process. Students were fully supported via a number of workbooks to complete that will help with their learning.
