Hi Ishwari, thanks for the add, happy to make your acquaintance. I am quite familiar with the Centre for Fashion Enterprise, and of course Eco Fashion World. Not sure if you've check out my book and website, but if not this is the link www.ecofashiontalk.com Let me know if there is anything I can help you with.
Sorry to have not responded before - to tell you the truth running all of this and developing fashion collections / linking charity and education has been a nightmare but this is the perfect time to speak - my tel no is 07803 613811 and my email is firstname.lastname@example.org

Hello there Ishwari,
I have been working with natural fibres in Nepal for a long time now and can supply you with fibre, yarns, textiles, as well as finished goods. Please have a look at www.heavenhemp.co.uk and www.wildweaves.co.uk to get an idea of what we do. I work with hemp, nettle, cactus, banana, bamboo . I also have a small workshop where we make bags, clothing and rugs from natural fibres. Hope to hear from you and would like to be your friend. Take care,
Hello Ishwari - yes we can be friends - I might be over in india (mumbai) in a month or so - I'm working with a couple of cooperatives over there through the University of The Arts London - I'm a design manager/project coordinator. So if you are around it might be good to chat. All the best
Hi Ishwari, thanks for the message and sorry for the delay getting in touch. At the moment I wouldn't really be able to take on an intern but might have opportunities in future. Why don't we stay in touch and let me know how you get on with your course.
It sounds really interesting, that's actually something that I'm really interested in myself. You will have to let me know how it goes, because am prob looking to do an MA in the next couple of years. Would be good to find out what your course is like.
Hey, yes we can! As communications manager I take on interns (often students) to help wtih various aspects of marketing including generating marketing materials for European audiences - mostly B2B. If you're interested in doing an internship drop me an email at email@example.com with your CV and I'll take a look. We can only provide accomodation and a weekday lunch for interns, but the work is interesting!
Thank you so much Ishwari!
Here is my Indian number so we can keep in touch. When are you leaving for London?

I will give your friend a call this afternoon and see what we can do.
Thank s again!
i don't know Nottingham University, but I can recommend LCF, especially if you want to do your MA on sustainable fashion. they do have a research center for sustainable textiles called TED. get in touch with them. http://www.arts.ac.uk/library/3451.htm They also have got a center for sustainable fashion: http://www.fashion.arts.ac.uk/csf.htm
On the education side I have put together a programme which crosses over to post graduates - students currently get attached to me via things such as BBC vision but my programme is broader, I can email you a doc on what it is - what is your email ? - I am based in Archway so maybe we should meet at some stage - currently I am filming in Scotland
