Manufacturing Sector

Manufacturing with a twist!
We love innovation here at academyONE and want to ensure we are providing opportunities that not only inspire our future manufacturers and entrepreneurs however support some of those industries that are in dire need of new talent… with this in mind let us introduce our partner business The Style Factory.

What is the Style Factory?

After being commissioned to complete some research around the tailoring sector in the UK we very quickly discovered professional tailors are few and far between with most of the industry and talent being imported- we are passionate about growing our own and along came the opportunity to team up with The Style Factory.
The Style factory is an opportunity for new talent to discover the world of fashion, by up cycling old clothing and creating a brand new garment (with its own label we might add!)

So how do we do this?

We offer people the opportunity to train in the fashion industry by using a real working environment with specialised tutors in a live shopping mall to make market and merchandise their products- all in 13 weeks!

It doesn’t stop there.. we also have a real live factory for those who want to refine and grow their current tailoring skills we will be delivering pattern cutting, machinist and sales skills to provide a cost effective manufacturing opportunity for those small independent retail businesses who need own label production.
