Jenny commented: “As I said on the stage I am nothing without the team we have. Particular acknowledgment to the Directors sitting on table 14 last night; many have been on the Fashion-Enter Ltd/ FashionCapital journey for over ten years! 

“We have had our ups and downs in business but we have shown what pivoting really means! 

“To the rest of the team in Haringey, Islington, Leicester and Powys – you are awesome! No person is an island and I accepted the award on behalf of us all.

“Thank-you to all that voted too.”
