Westminster University Visit Fashion Enter

Westminster University Visit Fashion Enter

Westminster University Fashion Business students visit Fashion Enter.

Aiding the Fashion Business students with all the knowledge they need about how a British manufacturing operates, the students, who are currently studying a textiles module, were greeted by CEO Jenny Holloway.

Informing the students of the manufacturing process of a garment, the group were able to see and gain an understanding of the process from initial idea right through to delivery.  Providing insight into what makes the factory SMETA and Fashion Forward approved and what this actually means, the students were able to understand just how crucial this is for any manufacturing company.

From the cutting table to sewing machines, quality control stations and over lockers, they expressed their surprise at how many machines are actually needed to create a garment.

The students then visited our Fashion Studio where they had the chance to see our pattern cutters in action, before meeting our own students in the Fashion Technology Academy.

Upon finishing their educational visit with us the students commented;
