The East London Fashion Cluster (Fashion District)

The Fashion District (East London Fashion Cluster) is where fashion, tech, business and education, compete, collaborate and innovate – to develop new products and processes, foster talent and create new jobs – strengthening London’s position at the forefront of the global fashion industry.

To develop this vision, London College of Fashion and the Greater London Authority jointly commissioned a report from BOP Consulting to research and to make the case to establish a dedicated organisation - the East London Fashion Cluster.
