London College of Fashion offers students specialist facilities - equipment, tools and resources - across six London sites.

This includes the biggest fashion library and archive in the UK (the library was redeveloped in 2013), sample and sewing rooms, a 3D modelling room, cosmetic science labs, visual merchandising suites and make-up studios.

CAD/CAM facilities and suites and 3D printers give students an opportunity to investigate fashion tech, while our two galleries host an exciting schedule of exhibitions and events throughout the year.

We've got machinery that you won’t have seen in many places before, and wonderful technical staff to show you how to use it. From the Digital Anthropology Lab working with augmented reality at John Princes Street to the dye and flax garden at Mare Street, we make sure you have everything you need (and a lot more you didn't know you needed).

Technical staff

Our technicians will be a huge support to you throughout your time here, teaching you the intricacies of the machinery and how to become a master craftsman.


At LCF, on-campus activity is enhanced through E-learning, which supports flexible and independent learning. The ‘Virtual Learning Environment’ (VLE) allows you to participate in a wide range of projects and collaborate with fellow students, staff and industry.

We use Moodle to give you course notes, timetables, and room bookings.

LCF's Learning Technology Support

Learning Technology Support is a dedicated internal team of support staff and production specialists. They run the Open Access areas at each of LCF's five sites, and have a range of skills and backgrounds, including graphic and web design, desktop publishing, video production and CAD CAM.
