CPPD Course With Arcadia
On Tuesday 11th July employees from Arcadia brands including Topshop, Dorothy Perkins and Evans completed a CPPD course at Fashion Enter.
Offering a bespoke learning experience and first hand insight into the manufacturing of garments for a number of retailers and brands, the attendees were able to learn how their role can impact the production process as well as discovering the many crucial roles that filled to ensure each garment is produced to the highest of standards.
Starting their half day workshop here at Fashion Enter, the group were introduced to the company and had the ability to find out more about how Fashion Enter started and sister companies including Fashion Capital, The FCFTA and Fashion Studio.
Being given a tour of the factory by Production Manager Caroline Ash, the group were able to examine the garment life cycle and discover the impact quality issues have on pre-production and production in a factory and how this effects lead times.
