Expert Advice: Free Monthly Masterclasses to Support Fashion Start – Ups


The Fashion-Enter Ltd (FEL) team will be hosting a series of free, monthly masterclasses via Zoom to advise and support new and emerging fashion businesses.

The FEL team consists of individuals that have decades of fashion and manufacturing experience and can provide in-depth knowledge and information required to successfully operate as a fashion brand today. 

From creating a business plan and finding a manufacturer to the sampling process and more. Our masterclasses are packed full of need-to-know terminology, recommended documents and information that are essential for your fashion business.

As part of our employment support programme all of our seminars include advice with CV writing, presentation skills and how to prepare for interviews. During all the workshops and seminars that are undertaken by FEL generic advice is provided but we then do offer one-to-one job support for the unemployed of Islington.
