East London 2012: William Richard Green

EXCLUSIVE FILM: The east London-based designer on his memories of the area and how it's changing ahead of the Olympics

As the 'Is East London Dead?' debate continues on Storify and our 'A Secret History of East London' map, we've ventured out to meet some of the people who've helped to shape the different scenes in the area over the years. Yesterday we spoke to Joe and Charlie Casely-Hayford about their memories of working and living around the Kingsland Road, and today we visit menswear designer William Richard Green in his Whitechapel studio to get his views on east London's development since he moved in, and what he thinks of the Olympics...

Dazed Digital invites you to map your east London memories on our timeline, 'A Secret History of East London'. Get involved HERE... Click HERE to check out William's east London memory
