Fashion Matters is the College’s annual fundraising campaign, which started in 2013 and to date, has generated in excess of £700,000, creating 184 new student scholarships and awards. Each year, the campaign culminates in a showcase gala and auction, helping to raise money for much needed scholarships and awards.
In 2017 the fundraising gala will be taking a new direction with London College of Fashion and Sadler's Wells coming together under a new banner, Material Movement. We support a shared passion; the nurturing of creative talent in order to ensure that the next generation of dance-makers and fashion leaders are supported and empowered to keep producing boundary-breaking work.
As two of the UK’s most established and pioneering organisations, both of whom will be future neighbours in the new Cultural and Education District in Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park in 2022, joining forces for the gala will guarantee a truly exclusive and inspirational evening.
