London’s Fashion Enter garment manufacturing training centre’s five students have been awarded £1,500 bursaries by Alvanon, the global apparel business expert. The scholarships are being used to fund the students’ participation in Fashion Enter courses that are essential to becoming professional patternmakers, technical designers and sewers.

Theodora Adjepong earned a bursary for Level 1 Stitching, a six week course which teaches the fundamentals of using industrial sewing machines and practice sewing techniques to produce a range of stitching samples. Grace Osofisan was named a bursary winner for Level 2 Stitching, a 12 week course that instructs attendees on the proper use of different fabrics to produce perfect collars and lapels, various pocket styles and many other essential details with precise finish and pressing techniques.

Eve Meredith, Donna Harris and Nader Shaw Moradi were named bursary winners for Level 2 Perfect Patterns, a 14-week course that provides apprentices with a range of in-demand technical pattern drafting and cutting skills. Industry experts guide students on the use of tools, techniques and methods to produce perfect blocks and patterns that fit.

Fashion Enter is recognised throughout the British fashion and textiles industry as a centre of excellence for sampling, grading and production, and for its role in cultivating fashion-related skills in Britain.

“In the past 15 years, we have lost technical skills and seen a lean towards the creative aspects of the fashion industry. We hope to support the companies and academia that are teaching and training the practical, technical and tactile: the patternmakers, the technical designers and the sewing professionals,” said Janice Wang, CEO of Alvanon.

“Alvanon is the only company to date that recognises the importance of technicians and skills development and so it is with very grateful thanks that we confirm five top-performing learners have received bursaries and can now continue to progress in their careers. Every bursary winner is now in employment thanks to Alvanon’s generosity,” said Jenny Holloway, founder and chief executive, Fashion Enter.

Looking ahead at 2017, Alvanon plans to work with Fashion Enter in the coming months. “Alvanon is pleased to continue its support for Fashion Enter. It has been especially exciting to give this opportunity to the future makers of fashion. Without new talent the industry would struggle,” added Wang.

Alvanon hopes to improve the industry by providing the best research, tools and training to industry professionals, as well as to future generations entering the fashion industry. In 2014, it donated £50,000 in technical fit forms, AlvaForms, to Fashion Enter’s London-based garment manufactures and training centre to help restore technical skills to London and other global fashion hubs, said the company.
