George at Asda Employees Join Us for a CPPD

On 13th July 2022, Production Director Caroline Ash, hosted a CPPD factory tour at Fashion-Enter’s Haringey HQ for a small group of employees / assistant buyers from George at Asda.

The group walked around the factory floor and the FashTech Innovation Centre, with Caroline stopping to explain at every stage. Throughout the workshop the group found out about the full garment production cycle, costings, supplier and buyer negotiations, compliance and ethics. She also gave insight into future technologies such as Optitex, Kornit Digital printing and the Zund cutting machine and how new technology is paving the way in sustainability in fashion and textiles.

Despite the hot day the group were really enthusiastic and complimentary about the workshop.
