N17 Creative Callings: Start Your Fashion Brand Today!
Following a number of highly successful online N17 Creative Callings seminars we have received a lot of requests to undertake a deep dive into the paperwork that is required for a start-up brand when sampling and for short run production.
On Thursday 11th June, Fashion Enter Ltd Production Director, Caroline Ash and Senior Pattern Cutter Claire Solley hosted a two-hour seminar titled ‘Start Your Fashion Brand Today’ that included essential paperwork required throughout the production process to ensure your business is organised and on-track from the outset. The documents included a legally binding Confidentiality Agreement; Fit log and Tech pack front cover. Participants included individuals on the N17 Creative Callings programme and others based further afield.

Each participant also received a scheduled 1-2-1 session for 30 minutes to gain further advice specific to their own business.
The agenda included:
+ Intro, welcome & N17 Creative Callings
+ Sample garment life cycle
+ Paperwork and contracts reviewed
+ Illustrated examples of paperwork
+ 10.30 – 11.00 Q and A
