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.
We host programmes that help people and businesses to excel in the fashion economy.
We are a proud home to Making for Change, London College of Fashion, UAL’s fashion production training programme. We also host a range of dedicated business support programmes for fashion entrepreneurs.Programmes

Fashion Revolution Week
Fashion Revolution Week is the time when we, as the fashion industry and consumers, come together to create a better fashion industry for all. It centres around the anniversary of the Rana Plaza factory collapse, which killed 1,138 people and injured many more on 24 April 2013. This year, Fashion Revolution Week marks 8 years since the tragedy with a focus on the interconnectedness of human rights and the rights of nature.View
