A new space for fashion in East London

Our goal is to help people and businesses reach their full potential in the fashion industry. There are over forty studios across our two sites, as well as training spaces, a small production unit and a café.

Poplar Works is a home for anyone working in fashion: designers, makers, jewellers, experienced business owners, and first year start ups. It’s a home for everyone interested in making fashion.

The breadth of what’s going on makes us a unique space in London. We have a range of studios across two sites, an extensive enterprise and events programme, and are home to London College of Fashion, UAL’s award-winning Making for Change programme.

Poplar Works is a partnership between Poplar HARCA, London College of Fashion, UAL and The Trampery. All three organisations have worked together to bring something unique to the space. We’ve been supported by the Mayor of London and are part of the Fashion District.
