Mary comments: “I’m so delighted to have been selected to sell with SilkFred through meeting Fliss on the very first day we opened the FC Designer Workspace, what a wonderful end to the year!”

On working with Fashion-Enter and the N17 Creative Callings programme she added: “As a one woman small business, you take on every aspect and have to learn as you go, that can be overwhelming and quite isolating so it’s a massive blessing to be included in this project. From from my products being in a local bricks and mortar shop and the mentoring, to just being part of something creative with other like minded local women is amazing.”

There is still time to join the N17 Creative Callings program if you live in the Tottenham area. To find out more about this free business support program from ESF and the GLA please email:
