Please join us at 11am on 21 April when we will be joined by UKFT Rise Ambassador Diana Kakkar, co-founder of high-end garment manufacturer, MAES London who will be discussing why it is more important than ever for designers to forge better relationships with their suppliers, manufacturers and vendors.
Diana has extensive experience gained during a career as a garment tech and product developer that spans across India, Australia, the US and culminating in the UK where she worked at Erdem, before setting up her own premium garment manufacturing unit specialising in high-end womenswear. Diana’s goal was to create a high-end garment manufacturing studio that put samples at the heart of the business, helping fashion designers create beautiful garments and turn their dreams into reality.
Launched in 2018, MAES London is one of London’s top garment manufacturers. With a reputation for quality and innovative thinking, they support fashion designers by making luxury manufacturing more accessible. Earlier this year, they doubled the size of their atelier having moved into a new 4,000 sq ft studio in Tottenham Hale.
Topics we will cover in the webinar include:
What your suppliers need to know
How best to communicate with suppliers
How to negotiate the best deal for you and for them
There will be an opportunity to ask questions at the end
