Fashion District Festival
22-26 September 2021
From 22-26 September 2021, Fashion District hosted the first ever Fashion District Festival, a five-day celebration of sustainability and innovation located in and around Stratford. Shoppers, start-ups and emerging talent could buy, learn and network with pop-up stores, styling sessions, a vintage market, workshops, events and installations.
Festival Programming Pillars
Shop: The best new sustainable brands and pre-loved fashion at Westfield Stratford
Grow: Learn, pitch and network for your start-up brand with The Trampery at the British Council, The Lab E20 and The Stratford
Watch: Showcases and styling events at D&D’s Haugen in the newly-built Pavilion
Make: Repair, reuse and recycle your wardrobe at Westfield Stratford and The Lab E20
On 27 September 2021, students were invited to the Fashion District Festival: Student Takeover. Our Student Takeover team, comprised of students and recent graduates from London College of Fashion, were given the opportunity to design and organise the full programme of events. The outcome was a one-day experience that enabled young creatives to expand their network, learn new skills, and engage with topical conversations on sustainability and innovation.
The Festival featured a diverse programme of events that wouldn’t have been possible without the generosity of our many programming partners.
