Jennifer Holloway from Fashion Capital will be starting off the catwalk and promoting the work and skills of her students on the apprenticeship program at The Workshop. Jennifer says: "We pride ourselves on being a 'non-profit' organization, for young hopefuls wanting to step up into the fashion industry. Our company also offers apprenticeships which are taught by professionals, supporting our students and allowing them to work within their company."
As a small, young, team, the importance of learning, training and gaining skills is something the staff at the London Garments Expo is very passionate about, and as such is proud to also accommodate De Montfort University Contour Design graduates on their catwalk show.
"The London Garments Expo is a truly unique international trade show. We aim to not only introduce international exhibitors to a UK market, but also national exhibitors to our international clientele. We also hope to enhance and promote our belief in ethical trade, as well as build bridges between business and education. We have been shown kind support from many retailers and establishments, and hope that our first annual garments expo will be a huge success," said organisers Perfect Events.
