The Fashion Media and Imagery Research Hub is based at London College of Fashion, it fosters research in the fields of fashion journalism, photography and digital media, by engaging LCF academic staff and practitioners to present their ongoing research, and by organising seminars and conferences with the leading domestic and international experts in the field.

Participants in the activities of the Fashion Media and Imagery Research Hub are united by common interests arising out of their personal research and practice-led projects. In its various formats, from informal ‘bite-sized theory’ sessions to seminars with the prominent researchers, round tables discussions and thematic symposia, the Hub serves as a platform to discuss the rich and diverse themes concerning fashion media and its imagery in a disciplinary context and to shape future dialogues, projects and events.
