UPDATE: Creative Mode has been officially announced, check out this post.
Ahead of the big reveal at The Game Awards 2018 tomorrow, it looks like the main announcement (other than Season 7) has accidentally been leaked. Lachlan released a video to YouTube showing off a new 'Creative' mode in Fortnite, though it has since been removed.

There's a limit on what you can do in the world in the form of a 'memory used' bar at the bottom of your screen. Once you reach this, you'll no longer be able to place items:
Opening up your inventory greets you with the creative menu. Here you can choose from a bunch of prebuilt structures along with regular items to spawn into the world:
Once you select an item, you're able to throw it (similar to a Port-a-Fort) to spawn it into the world:
You can select and pick up assets to customise their position further, with a range of options to get it just how you want (menu on the left hand side):
