Debbie Leon set up Fashionizer in 1993 when she noticed a gap in the market for luxury and bespoke uniform design.
The pandemic had a major impact on the business, after many clients in the hospitality and spa industries closed during the first lockdown.
Debbie needed a cash injection to keep her business going at a time when production had slowed. She initially applied for a CBILS loan through her bank, almost a full two months later she’d had no response. By the time she did, Debbie had already received a Funding Circle CBILS loan.
The business adapted quickly, and switched to making fabric face masks. They spent the first three weeks researching best practice, sourcing the correct filters and making the patterns and samples. They successfully set up a manufacturing supply chain in London that operated throughout lockdown.
