Meet Hannah - Our Fab Volunteer!
Hannah, aged 20, has been volunteering with Impact Arts for the last month at Factory 45. Hannah is in her third year studying International Fashion Branding at Glasgow Caledonian University.
So what does Hannah think about volunteering with Impact Arts? Read her blog below:
"I love working in Factory 45 and meeting the different designers as they drop by with exciting new collections. I am an avid user of social media myself, so I enjoy uploading pictures of the new stock and promoting each designer. I'm currently working on blog posts for the designers and it is exciting for me to hear about their new stock and inspirations before other people!
Through my volunteering experience, I hope to make connections with people in the fashion industry and gain a better understanding of how a third sector organisation works.
After graduating, I'm hoping to have a job in buying or merchandising, so Factory 45 is the perfect platform for me to gain an understanding of how the designers and stock are found, designer agreements are made and stock is eventually displayed and sold.
I would recommend volunteering at Factory 45 to anyone looking for a job in the fashion industry as it is great hands on experience, not to mention the staff are lovely to work with!"
You can pop in to Factory 45, (45 High Street, Glasgow, G1 1LX) if you are interested in finding out more about the shop or volunteering opportunities!
