Farnborough Students Visit Fashion Enter

Farnborough Students Visit Fashion Enter

On Wednesday 1st March we welcomed first and second year students from Farnborough College of Technology to the Fashion Enter Factory.

 Entering the Fashion Enter doors for an educational visit to the factory, the group of first and second year students were welcomed by Jenny Holloway, Jenni Sutton and Caroline Ash who were all on hand to show the young students exactly how an ethical manufacturing company works and produces 7,500 garments per weeks for companies including Marks & Spencers and ASOS.
