What we offer
Fashion Enter is a London based ethical garment manufacturer and the UK’s first Fashion Technology Academy. We believe the integration of industry into education is fundamental in the learning process. Our Factory produces 8,000 units a week for ASOS and our Fashion Studio provides sampling and short production runs for emerging designers and established brands. The educational site visit takes students on a tour of the garment production process so they can understand how an ethical factory operates and the skills involved in producing a garment.
