Event description



Join us to celebrate the opening of Waltham Forest's first fashion workspace as part of London’s Fashion District. A space for the local fashion industry to make, to showcase and do business.

Come and see the studios, meet the makers and hear about plans for the future. Speeches will begin at 6.30pm.


A collaborative project between Waltham Forest Council, the Fashion District, and London College of Fashion, UAL, Arbeit Studios Leyton Green will provide affordable creative workspaces for fashion start-ups and creatives.

With 13 studios starting from £200 a month, the space will offer business support and presentation event space, as well as become part of Arbeit's wider creative community for innovative collaborations and community involvement.


The Fashion District brings together fashion, technology, business and education to meet, compete, collaborate and innovate – nurturing talent, generating new jobs and developing new products. The Fashion District will drive economic and social transformation in east and north London, building on the area’s heritage of fashion and innovation.

Fashion District is driven by a partnership convened by London College of Fashion, UAL, with the Mayor of London, London Legacy Development Corporation (LDDC), the British Fashion Council (BFC), UK Fashion and Textiles, Unibail Rodamco-Westfield, Poplar HARCA, The Trampery, Fashion Enter, Here East, Newham College and the London Boroughs inc. Waltham Forest.

It is a key part of East Bank, the Mayor’s £1.1bn vision for a new powerhouse of world-class cultural institutions at Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park. New studio, retail and manufacturing sites are opening soon with business support and training programmes at: Arbeit Leyton Green Studios, Poplar Works by Poplar Harca, The Trampery Fish Island Village and Fashion Enter’s Tailoring Academy.


‘Arbeit’ means work in German, and this is what they do. We Make Space Work. Managing over 250 units across 12 sites, Arbeit creates unique spaces for its creative community built up of the fashion, design, arts, music and culture sectors.

In each space, Arbeit seeks to work with the local community to build spaces most suitable to those already living and working in the area. It seeks to showcase the new voices and talents in the area seeking to set-up their own businesses and help local industry thrive.
