Education is the key to securing the future of the British fashion industry
The UK Fashion Hub will change the face of contemporary education. It will do this by exposing students to not only an agglomeration of new technology and media but providing them with the option to work alongside a business-to-business environment, manufacturing zone and broadcasting suite.
We have partnered with several education institutions and Universities and will have over 1,000 on site at any one time.
In partnership with the Museum of London, the UK Fashion Hub will have an unrivalled fashion archive that can be accessed by students and professionals alike. This archive is not only a showcase and resource of fashion throughout the centuries but also a record of social history as Beatrice Behlen describes in the film below.

The UK Fashion Hub has every intention of being technologically advanced and one of the purposes of the ‘learn’ zone will be to embrace a variety of new media and technology. This will modernise the Fashion Hub as well as helping it to connect appropriately with contemporary youth culture and the students of the Fashion College.
The UK Fashion Hub has teamed up with the academic publisher AVA, who are currently embarking on a large list of fashion and textiles titles.
