Hipsters strike back with ethical fashion film!

You either love 'em or you hate 'em but you sure can't shake 'em. Hipsters are an integral part of the trend setting scene and are the taste-makers for today's world. Afterall, what they're wearing in the likes of Stoke Newington and Dalston one day slowly but surely trickles out until it's the Saturday night outfit du jour in all small towns across the UK.

American Hipster Presents, is a really interesting project that is visiting ten cities across the U.S., profiling five trendsetters in each in the worlds of food, fashion, music, art and social life. The aim is to showcase the exciting and interesting qualities of a creative generation, making those cities into destinations and hopefully changing some people's negative perceptions of the ubiquitous term "hipster."

The latest installment shows Homeslice's Emily Thornhill describing her process for creating organic and environmentally conscious fashion out of local textiles and discarded goods in Detroit. There are like-minded designers of this ilk in the UK today too, so if you're one of them or have any thoughts to share, drop us a comment below...
