N17 Creative Callings: Bulk Production & Lean Manufacturing

On Wednesday 27th May Fashion-Enter had over 40 individuals signed up to the N17 Creative Callings Employer Engagement seminar on ‘How to Manufacture Your Garments – Part 2 Bulk Production & Lean Manufacturing.’ The seminar was a follow-on from Part 1 which was held on Sampling & Small Run Production the week before.

In this session Fashion-Enter Ltd CEO Jenny Holloway and Production Director Caroline Ash combined their manufacturing expertise and experience to explain each stage of production for a brand that is ready to produce in larger and regular quantities. Vital to the process is the necessary paperwork, clear communication and understanding how a factory works and the timings involved.

The online seminar agenda included:

+ Intro and welcome

+ Overview of the N17 Creative Callings programme

+ What exactly is fast fashion (it’s not landfill!)

+ Standard minutes in a factory environment

+ Practical examples of how to cost a garment in real time

+ Understanding machine times and processes in larger scale production

+ How to achieve the same “look” for less – construction techniques

+ Common production faults and issues – how to avoid them

+ What to do when it does go wrong – what is a win win

+ Q&A – participants were invited to discuss their production concerns

The next N17 Creative Callings seminar is: The New Fashion Paradigm masterclass with James Stewart due to take place via Zoom online 11:00am – 13.00pm on Wednesday 3rd June.
