TFG technology lab at FEDISA Allen Leroux, FEDISA CEO, and Clinton Clark, Head of Operations for Prestige, officially open the lab
Global fashion retailer TFG, and prominent fashion school FEDISA, have partnered to create a technology lab for aspiring fashion professionals. The newly installed lab is now open to third-year students and can accommodate 50 students at a time.
Graham Choice, Head of TFG Design and Manufacturing, says that the students now have access to some of the most modern machinery available.
“We work with partners like FEDISA to nurture aspiring fashion students using the best technology to teach and train. Factories like TFG’s Prestige Clothing use some of the most globally advanced machinery and these students are getting a headstart,” he added.
FEDISA is a leading contributor to the global fashion industry, and believes access to technology is vital in grooming future fashion professionals.
Senta Morley, Group Director of Human Resources at TFG, agrees: “FEDISA graduates are highly regarded in the industry and training students on the latest technology will open up more opportunities for them after graduation.”
“FEDISA’s longstanding association with TFG and Prestige Clothing has seen the mutually beneficial relationship between the institution and the fashion industry offer our students unparallelled opportunities as they first develop their academic knowledge and skills and then their careers. This has unequivocally made FEDISA the first choice for fashion studies in South Africa,” says Allen Leroux, Chief Executive Officer of FEDISA.
