Centres and Hubs
London College of Fashion has a research community consisting of seven hubs and one centre (please see list below for details on each). Each hub has a co-ordinator who organises hub meetings and all seven hubs are co-ordinated by Professor Ian King. Normally, hub events happen on a Wednesday evening at 5.30pm in the RHS Space.
Our collective aim is to create a space where new ideas and issues affecting clothing and fashion studies can be explored. We are open to a variety of means of presentation or activity to present ideas, projects etc, from both internal and external speakers. If you feel you have something that we might find interesting and relevant - please contact firstname.lastname@example.org
We particularly welcome LCF/UAL colleagues wanting to develop their research skills.
All events are open to LCF/UAL staff and students. However, please provide RSVP to the call where required.
The Centre for Sustainable Fashion connects research, education and business to support, inspire and create innovative approaches to fashion. The Centre for Fashion Science merged with the Centre for Sustainable Fashion in summer 2011.
