We are pleased to announce that Fashion-Enter is delivering an exciting new project called ‘N17 Creative Callings’. The project, which is funded by the Greater London Authority and the European Social Fund, and supported by Haringey Council, will work with Londoners and small businesses within the Tottenham Creative Enterprise Zone (CEZ) to boost Haringey’s Creative Industries. We are partnering with Collage Arts which is a leading arts development, training and creative regeneration charity based in heart of Haringey’s Cultural Quarter. Between us, and other partners, we are going to put Tottenham's creative businesses well and truly on the map
The Creative Industries contribute £105bn gross value added (GVA) to the UK economy, which is greater than automotive, aerospace, life sciences and oil and gas industries combined.
The Creative Industries are growing at more than twice the rate of the economy as a whole.
The Creative Industries employ more than 2 millions in the UK and projected to create an additional 1 million by 2030.
The Creative Industries export £46bn in goods and services worldwide and account for more than 12% of UK services exports.

'We met Marquel eight years ago when he joined us as a Level 1 stitching student -
you could just tell he was bursting with creative ideas.
He soon progressed to the level 2 and then started the pattern making courses too.
He was so alive with talent that we put him forward for a level 3 apprenticeship with DIS Clothing -
they make for Strictly Come Dancing. He succeed in his application and dispute a journey from North London
to Croydon each day he completed his two year apprenticeship with flying colours.
Today he is undertaking a BA(Hons) in Menswear Fashion Design with Central St Martins; our leading fashion university in the UK. Marquel just shows us all what a little bit of determination and grit can do - you too have these opportunties to excel.'
