Continuing to Support Industry with Insightful CPPD Sessions


Fashion-Enter has continued to support the fashion and retail sector with their accredited CPPD workshops. These highly successful bespoke CPPD classes have been utilised by the likes of ASOS, M&S, New Look, Fat Face, George at Asda, amongst many others.

As Fashion-Enter runs an ethical and sustainable factory at its north London headquarters, which is both SMETA and Fast Forward approved, the aim of these CPPD sessions is to pass on how factories undertake malpractices and for buyers, merchandisers and garment technologists to be empowered with information ready to spot factories operating incorrectly. Ranging from 2 to 4 hours each CPPD is tailored to each clients needs and can take place on site or virtually.

A recent visit from 10 employees from George at Asda’s merchandising, buying and sourcing departments resulted in some excellent feedback:

“I found this extremely insightful and learnt many new aspects of the design to manufacturing trade. I would definitely recommend other colleagues to do this.”  Lucy, Merchandising Advocate

“I have learnt a lot of very useful information including cost breakdowns, lean manufacturing, how any small mistake can have such a huge knock-on affect. Very clear and concise useful information. Thank you very much.”  Jenna, Buying Advocate

“I have learnt a lot! Really good to see a real factory and what goes on. Also, about costing and how the business is operated. Very good information given and in-depth detail which is the most interesting part – e.g. the different business operations and fast production V’s the Fashion Studio.’ – Tanesha. Merchandising Advocate

“I have learnt the process of garments through production and what goes into getting costs and what can affect production. Very informative and the right length of time.”  Emma, Merchandising Advocate

“I have learnt a huge amount! I am not sure what I expected to learn but it definitely exceeded all expectations! I would thoroughly recommend to anyone else to do this training. Fantastic day! Thank you.”  Poppy, Assistant Buyer

“Really well delivered and very enjoyable!”  Anna, Buying Advocate

“I have learnt the process from start to finish, costing to sample making. Really insightful to see the factory and workers. Really informative session! Would recommend to other colleagues and retailers.” Rujvinder, Assistant Buyer

Production Director Caroline Ash went into great detail so the group could understand how a supplier operates and what questions they should be asking. Senior Pattern Cutter Claire Solley discussed the importance of design considerations from both a cost and manufacturing perspective. The session included a tour of the factory, clear explanation and lots of opportunities to interact and ask questions.
