Top places fashion professionals live when working in London

The increase in hybrid ways of working means it’s not essential for fashion industry employees to live close to the city anymore. However, if you like to live and breathe fashion culture every single day, having a place in London is the place to be.

Perhaps your next career move is bringing you into ‘town’ or you’re simply looking for a new place in the city. Whatever your situation, we’ve compiled a list of the top places fashion employees can live in London and be close to the action.

Shoreditch

Shoreditch is an extremely popular place amongst creatives. There are plenty of independent shops, pop-up entrepreneurial ventures and upmarket restaurants and bars. It’s just a 20 minute walk into town and also close to Liverpool Street Station giving you access to many more locations. Rental and buying prices are slightly more expensive, but you’re paying to be amongst London’s successful professionals.

Notting Hill

Notting Hill has been the place for the fashion-elite to live for almost 50 years. Top British fashion designers, such as Vivienne Westwood and Paul Smith, have their flagship stores there which has bought many style-conscious professionals to the area. Notting Hill is also home to Portobello Road where you can expect to pick up vintage gems. It is however one of the most expensive places to live in London, so be mindful of that when choosing where to rent or buy.

Islington

Islington is close to the city centre, yet has a real countryside feel. There’s river walks, leafy parks and lots of open space. Many small luxury fashion boutiques operate from Islington and it’s known as the place the elite-of-the-cultural-world congregate. Living prices aren’t cheap, but rent and buying prices are not as eye-watering as some of its neighbouring areas.
