Jenny Holloway CEO of Fashion Enter and FashionCapital comments: 

“Fashion Enter is so proud to have been nominated as the preferred training provider. We were in discussions with Su Thomas for the last three years so we were aware of the high expectations of the apprenticeship standard and the master craftsmen. We already work directly with Huntsman in our Fashion Studio so we are aware of the high exacting quality benchmarks required. We will make this programme a success. Our teachers and technicians are the best in garment skills training today; this is a wonderful opportunity for all involved. A special thank you to Su Thomas for her confidence in the team at Fashion Enter.”
