LCF and Poplar HARCA to deliver new East End fashion Hub

 

Ahead of LCF’s move to Stratford, Mayor of London Boris Johnson MP this week announced a £3.9 million project to build on and support fashion’s heritage in East London.  The ‘Fashioning Poplar’ project is a partnership between London College of Fashion, UAL and housing association Poplar HARCA.

The new fashion hub will include commercial studios, a fashion business space, manufacturing unit, a fashion technology accelerator and a public café, events space and outdoor area.

Professor Frances Corner OBE, Head of LCF, UAL said:

Fashioning Poplar heralds our move east to Olympicopolis in 2021.  It supports existing East London fashion enterprises, creates further economic growth and social engagement initiatives for the area and is a hugely significant step along the road to an East London Fashion Cluster.
