“Creating my latest collection with Fashion Enter has been an amazing experience! We worked hand-in-hand to create each piece to every detail specified.

What I love the most is the communication during the development process, and the staff really go the extra mile!

Working closely with Lan has really helped me develop as a young designer; I want to thank Lan, Sophie, JennyBeth, Gonul, Razina, Singh and the rest of the staff at the Fashion Studio.

My collection releases early next year and I hope to produce more at Fashion Enter.” – Jermaine Nwankwo, founder of CANG
