Newsletter 28th June 2017

Dear all,

Yesterday our CEO Jenny Holloway began her seminar on the advantages and challenges for managers in local sourcing by saying:

“Please don’t tell me today that any of you think that the revolution, in regards to making in the UK, is a fallacy – because it isn’t! We are making up to 10,000 garments a week, we make them competitively, we make them beautifully and we do it so there is margins for both sides.” – Jenny Holloway speaking at Fashion SVP.

Come and visit our ‘Consultation Corner’ today to talk all things fashion and production.
