Staff from Gain On Site Factory Insight

Kicking off the New Year we had our first factory tours and CPPD’s with two groups, staff members and interns, from on the 10th and 12th January 2023. 

Fashion-Enter Ltd’s Production Director, Caroline Ash, led the seminar and was able demonstrate each stage of production from the FEL team on the factory floor. As this group worked in fashion there were lots of pertinent questions and key areas of focus such as; costings, fitting, quality control and new technology including Optitex and Kornit Digital direct-to-fabric printing.

Caroline said: “We had two lovely groups in from for our first factory tours of 2023, a great way to start the year!” 

Feedback from each member of the group was excellent and included:

“I learnt LOTS from this seminar. I learnt how much goes into the garment making process. The in’s and out’s of costing. I thoroughly enjoyed it and gained such an insight that I didn’t have before. I will definitely take this into my day to day job.”

“I learnt about pattern cutting and factory processes and the importance of clear communication in fit sessions.”

“10 out of 10!” 

“I learnt literally everything! I’ve never been to a factory before so I learnt lots of new information. Really interesting. Thank-you.”

“I learnt about costings and the different obstacles that factories might face. Really good seminar – all positive feedback!”
