A Guided Tour for Central St. Martin’s Students

With pleasure,we opened our doors to a group of students under the leadership of Elisa Palomino of Central St. Martin’s and Malene Kristiansen from The Royal Danish Academy of Fine Arts, Textile & Fashion this week.

 

A Guided Tour for Central St. Martin’s StudentsFirst of all,the group was shown our factory in which all of our many wonderful products get made,including the printing process, as well as the industrial printing presses and 3D printing tools we use at Contrado to achieve vibrant colours and durable gear.Afterwards,students were given the chance to examine our fabrics up close and see the effects of sublimation printing ‘in the flesh’,moreover being gifted free Swatch Packs with over 60 samples to learn about materials with.And then they were shown the sewing room where handmade products are cut, stitched and sewn together before being led to the shipping department from where we post our products worldwide to a global market.

 

 

 

Eventually,students were given a basic introduction to the Bags of Love website where they can design their own fabrics and clothing in the offices.As well,we gave them a sneak peak of the forthcoming Designer Platform, our major project for 2015 which we hope will have a major impact on the industry and will empower aspiring designers like the students to create their own brand names one day!
