BREW Up Business Success for Women Over 50

BREW (Building Resilience and Enterprise in Women) is a scheme run by Wandsworth Council’s Lifelong Learning Team. BREW offers free advice and training to women over 50 on how to start or grow their own business.

When Angela Senior went to a previous launch of BREW she saw speaker Jenny Holloway, CEO of Fashion-Enter / FTA. A self-employed consultant in the fashion industry Angela gained business insight on the BREW programme and now works for Fashion-Enter creating patterns, prototype samples and small production runs for high-end clients.

Angela (pictured right) commented to www.wandsworth.gov.uk

“Although I have a first-class honours degree in Fashion Design and 30 years relevant experience, BREW helped me focus on the business side of fashion. Prior to this position, I was working as a consultant using my extensive experience in the clothing industry.  What I’ve ended up with is the most perfect job.

“My advice to other women is that you’ve really got to put yourself out there. I know a number of other women in this industry who aren’t in work and would benefit from this kind of support.”
