Fashion Capital Newswire – 16th May 2007


Hanging it all together for the fashion industry
Newsletter 16th May 2007


Hello All,


It’s been a hectic old week as per usual. Since announcing the launch of the Manufacturer’s Showroom in last weeks newsletter we’ve been getting a fantastic response. Cathy from Moo Moo’s e-mailed and said:


“Just wanted to say the manufacturers showcase is a really great addition to the website. I’m shortly going to need CMT services and have so far found it very difficult to find any clothing manufacturers that do small production runs.”


Click here to check out the showroom, it includes manufacturers from all over the UK and will be updated on a regular basis. If you are a production unit and would like to obtain a showroom on Fashion Capital please contact vanessa@fashioncapital.co.uk

Well done to winners Vivelle and their unique ‘Think While You Drink’ brain-teaser cups. Also a quick shout out to Pour Toi and their innovative Modesty Blaze t-shirts.
