Rocio is devoted to an ethical, eco-friendly approach to fabrics, cutting only when necessary, avoiding the creation of waste, prioritizing natural fibers and dyes that are good for the environment as well as for the skin.
“I could not wear a piece of clothing made in a far away country knowing the line of abuse from the moment that garment was conceived until it reached me. Manufactured clothes, even independent designer clothes, made for standardized sizes give me the chills. So many clothes are produced, bought and discarded these days. As more people buy fashion on a more regular basis, clothes seem to be less and less important. Are we less and less important?”
We believe that dining needn’t be expensive to be fine. Dalston and its surrounding districts boast some of the best Caribbean, Polish, Vietnamese, and Turkish food in London, and all at affordable prices. Those looking for a more posh vibe will be happy to know that our neighborhood also offers restaurants headed by some of the most world-renowned chefs, like Hunter Fisher of Thornberry.
The Hackney borough, of which Dalston belongs, has it all—from bespoke boutiques that feature independent designers to thrift stores and craft fairs full of one-of-a-kind finds. This is where rising fashion stars like Mara Bond got their start, taking inspiration from the dynamic culture of East London. No matter what store you go to, you’ll find products that you couldn’t get anywhere else.
Dalston nightlife is top-notch. You can watch the latest game while you enjoy UK staples like Nameless Beer, Demo Ale, and Filler Stout. Or try some small-batch beers crafted by local breweries. If cocktails are your preferred poison, trendy mixology establishments, complete with plush couches and date night lighting, are peppered throughout East London.
