Fashion Matters is the College’s annual fundraising campaign culminating in a showcase dinner and auction raising money for scholarships and bursaries to support future generations of designers, makers, entrepreneurs, commentators and industry specialists. To date, Fashion Matters has generated in excess of £700,000 which has created 184 new student scholarships and awards.
At a time when it is more costly than ever for students to continue on to higher education, particularly in London, it is so important that we look to raise the much-needed funds for student scholarships and bursaries, which will ensure that all talent, regardless of background, can be nurtured at LCF.
Investment and funding in emerging talent is vital to the future of the UK fashion industry; therefore I hope you will join me in showing your support for both LCF and the next generation of fashion industry leaders.

Showcase Dinner and Fundraising Auction
LCF’s Fashion Matters Dinner and Fundraising Auction was held at Victoria House in Bloomsbury, in November 2016, with guests including designers, entrepreneurs and key fashion business leaders gathering for a unique evening to celebrate British educated fashion and design talent. The funds raised were used to create new scholarships, bursaries and awards for students.
