6th December 2017

Dear all,

After several months of meetings and discussions we are delighted to confirm that LLEP (Leicester and Leicestershire Enterprise Partnership Area) has awarded Fashion Enter training contracts throughout 2018 working with the local garment manufacturers to improve their productivity and efficiency. There will be three workshops between January 2018 and April 2018 and they will be hard hitting and specific to KPI’s that every garment manufacturer should be operating.

Fashion Enter/FashionCapital CEO, Jenny Holloway, commented: “The latest statistics clearly show that fast-track production is now here to stay within the dynamic fashion industry. Retailers are ready capitalise on providing the right products in the right prints at affordable prices and the UK is the only way to cater for this instant demand required by consumers today. The days of two seasons a year Spring/Summer and Autumn/Winter with transitional ranges in between all have long gone. Rolling ranges of the order of the day where assertive buyers will keep extending the life of a garment by bringing in new lengths, colours,  prints etc. We are delighted that we have won this contract with Leicester and look forward to working closely with the manufacturers.”

Farewell to Vicky Clarke at Haringey Council

Jenny Holloway comments: “It is with genuine sadness that Vicky is leaving LBHC – she has been an outstanding Assistant Director in Economic Development & Growth and her vision for Haringey has been incredibly forward thinking. An excellent strategist Vicky has supported our  joint aims of bringing quality manufacturing back to Haringey. Haringey has had the highest growth sector of employment in manufacturing last year.
