How to Find Office Space in London for a Fashion Business

It’s easy for some industries. From law to finance to insurance, the standard of the office you choose certainly matters, but no one’s expecting you to be an innovator in office space design. Yet when you’re part of the fashion industry, there’s an expectation that your office will walk the (cat)walk too.

So, if you’re wondering where to start your search for a suitable office, start here…

How can I find an office for a fashion business in London?

Choose customisable

Fashion is about making your mark and expressing your individuality, and you can’t do that when your landlord won’t allow you to tweak so much as a single piece of wall art. Customisable office spaces let you put your own stamp on them, giving you free rein to create a space that looks, feels and works exactly how you need it to.

Look for the ‘customisable’ badge during your Hubble London office search to find the spaces that give you greatest creative and branding freedom.

Choose light

Of course, you’ll be kitting your office out with light boxes, meticulously lit demo retail display units and more, but there’s no substitute for lots of natural light. Not only will it (literally) illuminate the design process, it’ll help keep your people productive, energised and happy.

Design matters

The fashion giants know a thing or two about creating spaces that smartly match form with function. PrettyLittleThing’s LA HQ features an indoor ‘street’ where offices and meeting rooms are hidden behind mock shop fronts. Missguided’s HQ is decked out with indoor cherry blossom trees. We’re not suggesting you need to go quite that far, but if you’re building a brand that’s distinctively different, it’s important you’re able to reflect that in the space around you.

Match your space to your ethos

Fashion faces some big challenges in its approach to everything from sustainability to fast fashion, labour practices to body image. Lots of businesses are making their mark by tackling such issues head on and if that’s your business, you’ll want a fashion office space that reflects rather than contradicts your ethos. If you’ve taken a stand on the energy you use to produce your fashion, for example, you’ll probably want an office that is similarly energy-efficient.

It’s not something you’ll always find from an online search, so if you have a particular value or ethos you need your workspace to reflect, talk to our team of experts at

Choose expandability and affordability

London is the UK’s favourite place to launch a startup, massively outstripping the next most popular locations. For most startup owners, the challenge is striking the right balance between not running before you can walk, whilst giving yourself plenty of room to grow. So, it’s important to choose office space with flexible leases, all-inclusive pricing and plenty of additional space for expansion should you need it.
