Fashion and Textile Museum

The Fashion and Textile Museum is a cutting edge centre for contemporary fashion, textiles and jewellery in London.

Founded by iconic British designer Zandra Rhodes, the centre houses permanent and changing exhibitions exploring elements of fashion, textiles and jewellery as well as the Academy which runs courses for creative students and businesses, and the fabulous FTM Café.

Situated in the heart of fashionable Bermondsey Village, in a fantastic building designed by Mexican architect Ricardo Legorreta, the FTM aims not just to display and collect items relating to fashion, jewellery and textile design, but to offer inspiration to a new generation of creatives.

Now redeveloped and operated by Newham College, the museum is a hub of learning, ideas and networking for the fashion and jewellery industry.
