In 1945, Hardy Amies settled on No. 14 Savile Row, simultaneously continuing the tradition of making classic, beautifully tailored clothes whilst also being an important game-changer to the area. Today, new centres of creativity are booming on the edges of the city, inspiring, dictating and rejuvenating contemporary London lifestyle. Through video-interviews, filmed in Brixton, Hoxton, Bermondsey, Shoreditch and Hammersmith, an eclectic array of creatives and entrepreneurs elaborate on the ways in which their work and lives impact the neighbourhood and how the neighbourhood has influenced them.
