Three Groups From Westminster University Take Factory Tour

On 13th October we welcomed three cohorts of MA and BA Fashion Business Management students from Westminster University.

Each two-hour tour was led by Production Director Caroline Ash who explained the complete garment production process, critical path, the supply chain, costings and the micro factory concept with sustainable digital printing with the Kornit Presto printer and the Zund master cutter. The session was adapted to incorporate key topics in line with the business students curriculum and coursework.

Feedback was fantastic and included:

‘Everything that I have studied has been covered and even more in a visual way!’ Anna

‘I have learnt the processes of making a good quality garment, cost prices of the garment, things you have to consider as a buyer and the relationship between the buyer and the manufacturer.’ Shanai

‘I have learnt about costs, critical path, how to make sure products fit and the production process. Very interesting with lots of useful information.’ Sophie

‘I have learnt a lot about the supply chain of the fashion industry, and experience the process in person now.’ Hannah

‘I have learnt the process from tailoring to finished product of a garment. Have benefited a lot!’ Maxine

‘Thank-you so much! Very informative indeed. A very friendly, peaceful working environment.’ Red

‘I have learnt about how a garment is produced, digital printing (sustainable) and supply chain. I loved the place!’ Purvi

‘Overall excellent experience!’ Supriya

‘The process of making a garment is much more complicated thnt I thought and the supply chain becomes a significant sector when it comes to fashion industry.’ Sam

We look forward to the next visit from Westminster University students.
