Fashion Enter Open day
On 13tth April Fashion Enter hosted a ‘Know your Ethical Factory Open day’. The open day was the perfect opportunity for aspiring designers, fashion enthusiast and learners to gain valuable knowledge on how an ethical factory runs and to get a first-hand look at the garment production process. Upon arrival attendees were greeted by a friendly member of staff, then lead upstairs to the glass room where they were introduced to CEO Jenny Holloway who continued the visit with a Master class on 'Know your Ethical Factory' which explained all the different aspects within Fashion Enter and all the services that are available. Jenny explained to the attendees what the factory standards are and talked the attendees through every step of the production process from the different types of audits to what makes a factory compliant, the needle policy, the pros and cons of overseas manufactures to fabric delivery and labelling. Shortly after the presentation attendees received a factory tour where they got to see samples being made and patterns being cut, they also got the opportunity to speak to the machinists.
Overall students were very pleased with their visit and learnt a lot, here are a few comments:
“Loved the course” Charlotte

“It was a good session, everything was well explained” Edith
