Research Student Hub
Hub Coordinator: Veronika Kapsali, Reader in Material Technology & Design at UAL
The London College of Fashion Research Student Hub is a forum for postgraduate students who share an interest in fashion. Welcoming both practice-based and theory-based researchers, the hub provides a space for exchanging ideas, sharing concerns and fostering a sense of community amongst postgraduate fashion researchers across UAL. Public events are held approximately twice per term and are open to all UAL postgraduates and staff.
