London College of Fashion (LCF) is one of the foremost centers of fashion education in the world. For over a century we have been nurturing creative talent and using the subject of fashion, together with its industrial importance, to shape lives and drive economic and social transformation.

Through teaching, specialist research and collaboration LCF advocates for climate, environmental, social and racial justice, and for sustainability and prosperity for all. We believe it is essential that the teaching and learning of fashion acknowledges our complicity as humans in ecological collapse and social inequity. We believe it is the role of education to offer a safe space for all to explore a plurality of fashion design, business, and media practices with the shared goal of restoring and regenerating our social, economic, cultural and ecological systems.

Centre for Sustainable Fashion (CSF) is a UAL research, education and knowledge exchange centre based at LCF. Established in 2008 by Professor Dilys Williams, CSF has grown to be a diverse community of world leading researchers, designers, educators and communicators with an extensive network that crosses disciplines, generations, cultures and locations.

We provoke, challenge, and question the status quo in fashion; contributing to a system that recognises its ecological context and honours equity. We shape and contribute to Fashion Design for Sustainability as a field of study, industry, and education practices. We engage in transformation design, cross-referencing fashion’s ecological, social, economic, and cultural agendas.
