About you

The Fashion Media programme at LCF is well-established and highly regarded, so you will have substantial experience that could lead and expand its forward-thinking vision.

As a critical practitioner or researcher, you will be able to mentor students through the shifting political and cultural context of today. You will have cultivated connections between fashion and other creative sectors, established partnerships with relevant communities, and used culture to inspire creative tasks.

The programme has a strong emphasis on research and knowledge exchange, so you will be able to establish new and leverage extensive industry connections and networks to provide significant opportunities in the curriculum, which is especially important given LCF’s recent move to Stratford and East Bank in 2023. Drawing on your expertise, you will ensure that the Fashion Media programme continues to innovate in teaching, learning support, and assessment.
