Poplar Works opened its doors to the public on Saturday 8th June. Tours were organised to give local residents, potential end users and funders the opportunity to look around the soon-to-open fashion hub for the first time. Around 45 local people and businesses visited throughout the day to see some of the low cost business units, the manufacturing hall and various training spaces.
Poplar Works is a partnership project between Poplar HARCA, London College of Fashion, UAL and The Trampery. The affordable low cost workspaces and free training programmes have been designed to create a new fashion education hub and to bring fashion back to its home in the East End.
