LCF Archives are a teaching collection and research resource that we utilise to inspire and engage students. They hold a set of eclectic and eccentric collections that explore the history of London as a fashion capital. We collect material that reflects the full fashion cycle – from concept and design, process and production, through to finished pieces and press and promotional materials. We also frame fashion as a social subject by looking at the personal and political stories our clothes can tell about us.

The LCF Archives are hosting a series of events during the course of the year. Please see below for an outline of the schedule as well as links for where to sign up.
