DAY SIXTEEN – (16th August)

Posted by Zoe Fletcher on Friday, August 27, 2010

* It was my first day at MAS Holdings, so I was a little nervous, however on arrival at the Design Centre I was warmly greeted and shown around with another group of new interns, we then watched a presentation on the history of MAS Holdings and the future hopes of the company.

* I the afternoon I was very privileged to meet with Nathan the CEO of the Design Centre, he was lovely and explained to me about the development of a project involving Organic cotton.

*After lunch I was able to read up about the history of the company, their values and how the business has expanded over the 23 years they have been in business.


Zoe Grace Fletcher Currently undertaking a PhD at Manchester Metropolitan University within the MIRIAD post-graduate department, I am beginning a practice based academic journey into British wool fibres and new technologies within knitwear design. Graduating with Distinction from a Masters in Fashion and the Environment at London College of Fashion, specialising in hand-knitting and the British Wool Industry, I have worked on a number of knitwear collections (personal and external companies), whilst freelancing and researching for a number of exciting projects. My work revolves around the idea of sustainable fashion from a knitted perspective and the different ways to achieve this incorporating the ideas of slow fashion into mainstream society. I love knitting. And wool. And double sided sticky tape.
