Creating Hackney as Home:
Five reflections on a London borough


Tyrell's film

Hackney Style

My film is about style and dress in Hackney. In this film I am going to unravel stereotypes to do with dress and appearance. I have conducted interviews with my friends and locals to explore these ideas. My film asks three questions. Does the clothing we wear affect the way people judge us? Does the way we dress give us a sense of belonging? Do we wear certain clothing to adapt to our surroundings?
