Hackney Happenings

Around Hackney

Early in December I visited the launch of the Style Young exhibition, the final product of a collaborative effort between London College of Fashion, Threads Youth Project and three Hackney Schools.

The students were guided by local designers Carrie Munden and Danielle Scutt who helped them realise their creations which were of an incredibly hard standard. 

Projects such as these are an incredibly important opportunity for young people to get an insight into the fashion industry.

By working alongside professionals it allows an insight not only into design but into broader opportunities within the fashion industry such as visual merchandising, buying, styling or marketing. 

Health Matters
Visit to St. Joseph's Hospice

Recently I visited Hackney's St. Joseph's Hospice to get a first hand look at the fantastic work the team of specialist doctors, nurses, social workers and other skilled staff and volunteers, that provide excellent care for anyone with serious or life threatening conditions.

These services are essential to our community and our provided both in the hospice and in patient's homes. 

It was a great opportunity to discover more about the hard work of the staff and hear more about the fascinating history of the hospice that has been here in Hackney since 1905.
