Fashioning Poplar

81 disused garages, identified through Open Poplar will be transformed into the site of a new East London fashion hub.

The £3.9 million ‘Fashioning Poplar’ project is a joint venture between Poplar HARCA, London College of Fashion, UAL and The Trampery, with an £1.8 million investment from the Mayor’s London Regeneration Fund.

The site will comprise design studios, a garment manufacturing unit, a “makery” for up-cycling and local artisan-style businesses, the Fashion Business School and a showcase and cafe space. At least 40 new, sustainable jobs for the local community will be created over a three year period.

 

 

The site is close to the Poplar Riverside Housing Zone, currently being masterplanned, and on the doorstep of the Olympic park.  Within the next five years, London College of Fashion, UAL will be moving to nearby Stratford Waterfront creating a single site for its world renowned fashion education provision
