We were delighted to be an exhibitor last month at Meet the Manufacturer. It was a fantastic exhibition in the Truman Brewery in Brick Lane brought about by Kate Hills a stalwart in the UK fashion industry who has championed manufacturing in this country. As I write on the day of the election, I am very conscious that whatever the result, it is more important than ever to support investment in the UK and using British manufacturers is an excellent way of doing so.
It was our first trade show and I was really pleased at the positive reception of the Jennifer Anne collection. I felt that we have made a great start to launching the collection and building the brand. What was particularly lovely at the exhibition was the camaradarie between the independent premium brands who were exhibiting in the Brand Hall. I found it fascinating talking to other founders, a number of whom like me have no background in fashion. What was common to all though, was a real passion and belief in what we are doing and using British manufacturers is very much at the heart of this.
