Better Lives is our initiative to celebrate and promote social responsibility through the work of LCF.
LCF Year of the Woman is a year-long programme of activity led by London College of Fashion, UAL, to celebrate the centenary of Women’s Suffrage in the UK and the passing of the 1918 Representation of the People Act.
This programme includes Processions, where artist Lucy Orta will produce a banner-art work in collaboration with inmates at a women's prison, three panel debates, exploring the future and politics of feminism, as well as a series of pop up performances created by our BA Costume for Performance students, and the exhibition ‘Motive / Motif’, inspired by suffragette-embroidered handkerchiefs.
As part of LCF Year of the Woman, there will be a series of panel discussions hosted by Frances Corner, and this commenced with a New Wave Feminist Publishing discussion in February, as part of our MA18 media and communication exhibition activity.
Check back soon for information on upcoming panel discussions.

In 1918, the Representation of the People Act gave the first British women the right to vote and stand for public office. One hundred years on, Artichoke are inviting women and girls across the UK to come and mark this historic moment as part of a living portrait of women in the 21st century. LCF will be producing a banner as part of this.
Artichoke produces extraordinary and ambitious ephemeral events that live in the memory forever, transforming people’s lives by changing the way they see the world. Find out more.
