Jobs are back in fashion.
SACKED workers from the former DAKS-Simpson clothing plant are taking the fashion world by storm.
Ex-factory manager Pamela McKendrick and technical designer Anne Fraser used their redundancy cash to set up Ubiquitous Tailoring to specialise in high-quality luxury clothing.
And with the help of a dozen machinists, who lost their jobs when DAKS shut down it's Lanarkshire plant in March, the new firm has managed to secure a host of orders from high-profile labels.
Fashion guru Margaret Howell, who runs a network of stores in London and Japan, is already using the Blantyre-based firm as one of her main suppliers.
Mum-of-one Pamela, 32, said: "It's a fantastic start and we will create more jobs as the order book increases and they will go to former DAKS workers."
