"The ASBCI is a terrific forum for technical & commercial excellence in the fashion and textiles industry.

The Association provides an excellent network for discussion and learning and facilitates a very important link between retailers, manufacturers and academia, as demonstrated by events such as the annual Students conference.

There are a number of benefits specifically for Students……… 

There are conferences with the networking and educational benefits they bring, The association organises some fantastic Technical visits throughout the year. The design and dissertation prizes provide an excellent opportunity for Students to showcase their work …… and have led to placements for students in leading manufacturing and retail businesses. 

M&S have proudly sponsored the Student dissertation prize for the last three years and we have always been impressed by the very high standards of the work submitted. We look forward to being associated with this prize for some years to come and fully support the great work the ASBCI does with the student community.“
