Their visit to the factory commenced with an overview of Fashion Enter and the garment life cycle, followed by a tour of the factory and Q&A’s.  The factory tour enabled the students to see first hand how a garment is manufactured, giving them the ability to understand and see each process in action and the skills required to complete these.

From the factory floor the students went on to see the Fashion Studio where our design team work with new designers and independent labels.  Here they had the ability to watch sample machinists and pattern cutters working on the latest collections.
