From Sunday best to Saturday night threads, from locks to the Jheri curl, this exhibition shares and celebrates the history and impact of African and Caribbean style and hair through the eyes of Hackney people. Explore how the clothes we wear and how we style our hair has expressed and impacted identity since the 1950s, and what this means for us today. Discover the local entrepreneurs, designers and fashionistas who have changed British culture in the borough and beyond.
Please note, school groups will be visiting the exhibition Tuesday to Friday, 9.30 AM to 3 PM during November. Other visitors are still welcome, but may prefer to visit at quieter times.
