The Fashion District aims to make London the global hub of fashion innovation, and launches in Autumn 2018 across all east London boroughs.
We bring together fashion, technology, business and education to meet, compete, collaborate and innovate – nurturing talent, generating new jobs and developing new products.

We will do this by:
– stimulating fashion innovation
