London College of Fashion (LCF), University of the Arts London, is proud to announce the opening of its new home as part of East Bank, the vibrant cultural quarter for innovation, creativity, and learning situated on the Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park. With a rich history spanning 117 years, LCF's brand-new Cultural Programme aims to engage, collaborate, and welcome the public on an unprecedented scale.

As a global leader in higher education and the fashion industry, LCF offers a wide range of courses encompassing all aspects of fashion, from business and communication to design and more. The Cultural Programme of LCF seeks to advance the College's mission of shaping lives through fashion by engaging communities, industry professionals, and local and global audiences in understanding the significance of creativity in today's world.

The Cultural Programme curates and produces annual seasons in collaboration with students, staff, the local community, and partners. It features a diverse range of exhibitions and events that are free of charge, including three to five major exhibitions per year, a series of weekend and after-hours events, and various pop-up experiences.

This exciting programme will encompass highly anticipated LCF events, such as the renowned postgraduate and graduate shows, as well as special summer collaborations with East Bank partners including V&A East, Sadler’s Wells, UCL East, and the BBC. These collaborations aim to bring programming beyond the confines of the buildings and into the public spaces of Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park and the surrounding boroughs.
