Factory 45 Shortlisted for an Award!

Impact Arts is delighted to announce that our social enterprise Factory 45 has been chosen as a finalist in the Scottish Independent Retail Awards Fashion & Accessories category - South West. Factory 45 is a platform for emerging designers in Glasgow. The team at Impact Arts, who run Factory 45, are absolutely thrilled to be nominated and as Factory 45 is the only social enterprise to be shortlisted, we are delighted to be representing the sector!

Factory 45 Manager, Alissa Espie said:

"We're surprised and delighted by this nomination - we've only been open since early December so it's brilliant to be shortlisted in a category with other such well-established shops! We'd like to thank everyone who voted for us and also thank all of the amazing designers who make Factory 45 so unique on the High Street!

The winners will be announced on Sunday the 8th of February at a ceremony at the Crowne Plaza in Glasgow - fingers crossed!
