University of West London Visit Fashion Enter!
Visiting the Fashion Enter factory this morning, 12 students from the University of West London were able to see what really goes on in a British manufacturing factory, allowing them to see first-hand the production and hard work that happens behind closed doors.
Like many, the group had never witnessed the work of a fashion manufacturing company, and were extremely keen to tour the factory after being introduced to Fashion Enter and sister companies by Development Manager Jenni Sutton. Aiding them in their studies, the tour provided them with the ability to develop their knowledge and skills as Production Manager Caroline Ash led them around the factory. Informing the group of each of the different machines as well as health and safety on the factory floor, the students learnt many of the key aspects of the production line.
Having visited the factory, the group went on to see the Fashion Studio, where production is completed on a smaller scale, before witnessing our skilled pattern team producing templates for garments.
Ending the tour in the Fashion Technology Academy, the group were able to see the education facilities where they had the chance to see the students in action as well as talk to the course leaders.
On their morning at the factory the group commented:
