A message from your College

Welcome to London College of Fashion where we have been nurturing creative talent for over a century. We believe in using the subject of fashion, together with its industrial importance, to shape lives and drive economic and social transformation.

Our College is a total fashion ecology where we examine the past in order to build a sustainable future and improve the way we live.

We believe strongly in the talents of our students and graduates as collaborators, and, together, we are confident we have the ability to reinvent the fashion industry for the next 100 years.

In 2022 the College will move to a single site as part of the Cultural and Education District on the Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park in east London. We call this relocation project 4Fashion, not only because we stand for Fashion - but because it’s how we will continue to work with local, national and international partners to deliver against our four major priorities:

*  Delivering excellent fashion education for all who choose it

*  Encouraging enterprise and incubation to support our students, alumni and the wider fashion economy

*  Driving impactful research to effect change and innovation

*  Building Better Lives, for a sustainable and socially conscious future

In the Three Schools section of the LCF guide you can find out from your Deans what it’s like to study in one of our three schools, School of Media and Communication, Fashion Business School, and School of Design and Technology. We hope during your time at LCF you feel as passionate as we do about new ways of thinking about fashion.

We look forward to welcoming you.
