On the 23rd October 2019, two groups from Westminster University came to visit our factory in North London for the 2-hour ‘Factory Uncovered’ tour.
Production Director Caroline Ash gave an insightful talk on the garment lifecycle, costings, the critical path and the importance of establishing a rapport between buyers and manufacturers.
The students were then taken on a guided tour of our factory where they we able to see for themselves the garments being produced from pattern to finished product and had an in-depth discussion at each stage to ensure they had a clear understanding of what British manufacturing entails.
Feedback from the Westminster University students included:
