Fashions Finest successfully launched ‘Let’s Talk Fashion Business’ discussion in September 2017 to an overwhelming response. Tracey Sayer (Fab Magazine), Zack Sartor (ApparelTasker), US fashion consultant Shelly Pick and stylist to the stars Bernard Connolly took time out of their busy schedules to discuss and advise on the business of the fashion industry.
This season Jenny Holloway will host a Fashions Finest ‘Let’s Talk Fashion Business’ discussion on ‘What is an ethical factory’ during London Fashion Week on the 17th February at 4P at the De Vere Grand Connaught Rooms in Covent Garden. This industry talk is free to attend.
Jenny Holloway has been working in the fashion industry for over thirty years; both in the private and public sector.
Initially, she worked for Littlewoods, was a selector for M&S and a senior buyer for the Arcadia Group before opening her own label Retro. For almost ten years Jenny was Director of her successful brand Retro UK Ltd which included retail boutiques, party plan, wholesaling to major retailers such as John Lewis, Principles for Women and independents. Retro UK also had an excellent export business with key accounts in the Middle East and Europe. In 2000 Jenny commenced a consultancy business and was approached to be an Industry Advisor on Government funded initiatives. In March 2006 Jenny incorporated Fashion Enter, a not for profit social enterprise. Today Fashion Enter employs over 100 people and produces 10,000 quality garments a week for multinationals such as an ASOS, samples and short production runs for independent brands including Matthew Williamson and Huntsman and created the UK’s first Fashion Technology Academy offering accredited qualifications for fashion and production skills.
