How To Succeed in Fashion Today

Jenny Holloway, CEO of FashionCapital, will give a talk as part of How To Succeed In Fashion Today at Ocean Studios

FashionCapital will host its second 'How to Succeed in Fashion Today' UK Trunk Show in Plymouth on 22 June 2017 at Ocean Studios in Royal William Yard with headline sponsors Plymouth College of Art and Millfields Trust, and continued support from leading national awarding body ABC Awards. 

After an overwhelming response following the Manchester Trunk Show, the need for a no holds barred seminar lifting the lid on the real UK garment industry was confirmed and the tour of the UK continues with the next stop in the South West.

The event will bring some of the fashion industry's most experienced and successful speakers to the region. The three-hour seminar will see Jenny Holloway, CEO of FashionCapital and Fashion Enter talking openly and honestly about the real industry, drawing on her experiences as a Senior Buyer for M&S and the Arcadia Group, owning her own label for 10 years and today running an ethical UK Factory producing over 8,000 units a week for leading retailers.

Joining Jenny will be former Buying Director of Topshop, Brand Director of ASOS and most recently Brand Director of Finery Caren Downie, who has long been an ambassador for young British design talent in the UK, as well as design consultant Gabrielle Shiner-Hill, and former Fabric Technologist for Marks & Spencer, Deborah Shulton.
