Being a fashion designer today involves a lot more than designing and cutting. Fashion students and teachers both agree that a lot more can be learned in fashion technology if teaching is taken outside the classroom. The shift to contemporary teaching methodologies has led to an increasing number of practical sessions and field visits, benefiting both the students and the employers. A resonance between academic education and the industry is fundamental in learning fashion. Fashion Enter Ltd, the sister company to, organizes factory visits for students from various fashion schools across the UK. Fashion educators feel that these visits not only offer valuable insight into the world of fashion but also give students fresh perspectives on the reality of the fashion industry. Broadening the spectrum of learning, factory visits conducted by Fashion Enter covers the sectors of organizing, sampling, sorting, cataloging and storing of apparel. The magnitude of all the steps and intermediate processes seem daunting at first but acquaint the students with employment options and skills required to run an apparel industry. These visits are tailor-made for every group and hence, The Fashion Technology Academy can cater to all age-groups form middle school kids with a passion for fashion or degree level students willing to explore their options.

The time taken for stitching a single garment, the prerequisites needed to qualify as an ethical factory and the broken needle policies of different factories are just a few topics that field visits can elucidate. Fashion schools and industries these days are optimizing their waste output to align their interests in favor of sustainability. Usage of harsh chemicals and emissions of harmful by-products, a huge part of the fashion realm is now being remodeled. Fashion Enter communicates a strong message of sustainability to its students by reducing its waste generation to a bare minimum and ensuring absolute transparency in all their processes.

Living up to her words, Fashion Enter is giving students all over an opportunity to gauge the skills that are required to survive the working world against the academic education they receive. Experienced and skilled professionals from the fashion industry guide the students through the factories while taking them through the eccentricities of each step.
