Aims of the Hub

Psychologists are concerned with improving quality of life, working towards ‘better lives’, which is also the mission of LCF. The Hub aims to facilitate a deeper understanding of human behaviour in the fashion and creative industries and the potential for improving the quality of life through understanding psychological well-being.

The Hub is based at London College of Fashion and intended for staff, early career researchers, research and postgraduate students to learn about and become involved with the projects generated through the LENS and to share ideas and develop collaborative opportunities.

I just wanted to say that I attended the Claire Heirons' talk a few weeks ago and I really enjoyed it. I thought she was an excellent speaker, and I found the content of the evening very interesting. It was great to have the Q&A session at the end, to discuss ways her knowledge and experience could help us spark ideas for changing the fashion industry, little by little. Overall I thought it was a great session. Thank you.
