Preloved & Recycling Service Now Offered by Fashion – Enter Ltd!


All businesses need to evolve in-line with the times we are living in along with being reactive to the demands of the consumer. 

At this moment, September 2022, there is a total lack of demand for new clothes. Consumers today have bigger concerns to worry about. Retail sales volumes fell by 1.6% in August 2022, continuing a downward trend since summer 2021! It’s not good news for retailers.

However, people still want to look and feel great and we’re finding a big increase in demand for alterations and ‘have-a-go at making your own clothes’ at our stitching and pattern courses, both being totally full this autumn term at both Level 1 and 2 (education@fashion-enter.com

We’ve also been running free, monthly upcycling workshops from our Islington FC Designer Workspace at Durham Road and each month they are heaving! Gen Z cares about the planet and the damage of over-consumption and landfill.

We are therefore offering a new upcycling service direct to consumers as well as retailers and brands. Consumers can go into any of our sites at Haringey, Islington, Leicester and Newtown in Powys, Wales and take in garments to be altered. We have highly experienced seamstresses and machinists at each location and we want to do our bit to keep textiles in circulation for as long as possible, bringing back value to our textile goods.
