Claire Swift

Director of Social Responsibility, University of the Arts London – London College of Fashion

Passionate about the transformative effect of education, particularly for those whose lives have been affected by crime, unemployment, lack of opportunity and deep-rooted social issues, Claire Swift has led on some of LCF’s most innovative and pioneering initiatives. She has developed opportunities designed to help participants forge their own creative identity, increase self-esteem and self-confidence and ultimately enable them to begin a journey towards a positive future. From 1981 to 1983, she studied Fashion and Textiles at the University of the West of England, and subsequently worked in the fashion industry with a range of designers before pursuing a teaching career in Higher Education.
