Know your Ethical Factory

Hosted by Fashion Enter CEO Jenny Holloway this insightful masterclass will inform attendees on dealing with manufacturers, the process and the key elements to look for:
  • Pre-planning the visit, setting an agenda and what you really want to achieve.
  • Communicate to the factory and to your own team.
  • Tell the factory and confirm; get the right people involved.
  • Show respect and understanding.
  • Provide feedback to the factory.
  • What are the key elements to a costing? Cost of fabric (price V’s usage) make-up costs, trims, logistics.
  • Types of sampling – design and product development, fits and contract seals.
  • How samples are generated?
  • Cost of a sample, getting approvals and speed of response.
And much more! 

The masterclass will include a tour of the Factory and Fashion Studio

“Just wanted to say an enormous thanks for a great course. It was so great to be able to ask silly questions in what felt like a very safe environment and I learned so much. Your Factory Tour should be a must for anyone learning about design.” Caroline Denver
