3-5 Fashion Street is in the very heart of Spitalfields, sandwiched between Brick Lane and Commercial Street among a handsome red brick Victorian shopping parade and directly opposite the glorious façade of the former Moorish Bazaar.
Beyond that the area needs almost no introduction, the beating heart of creative London and the birthplace of almost every modern fashion movement. It’s a unique combination of rich trading and manufacturing heritage that’s now home some of the most forward-thinking minds and enterprises on the planet, not to mention an extraordinarily vibrant street life with hundreds of independent shops, cafes, bars and restaurants.
Just a few minutes walk away is Spitalfields Market, another slice of incredible local architecture and given a radical modern intervention by Foster & Partners adding more retail, office and restaurant space to the unique environs of the old Victorian market hall.
Getting here is a breeze, with National Rail, Underground and Overground trains all stopping nearby – stations include Aldgate, Aldgate East, Fenchurch Street, Shoreditch High Street and the major terminus of Liverpool Street, itself set for even greater things with the arrival of the Elizabeth Line in 2018.
