Threads project
This project delivered skills in research, pattern-cutting and design, working with design and academic professionals helped the young women to realise their product and contribute to an exhibition in the local Hackney community.
In December 2014, Diane Abbott, MP visited the launch of the Style Young exhibition, the end product of a collaborative project between LCF, Threads Youth Project and three Hackney Schools, to present awards to the young girls involved to celebrate their hard work.
