Return of the Rudeboy took place at Somerset House in London 6 years ago today.

On an equally sunny day Harris Elliott x Dean's exhibition opened in the Terrance Rooms, South Wing of Somerset House.
It was a landmark immersive exhibition that worked culturally, historically and aesthetically. 
Six rooms of the gallery were used to present Photography as well as numerous other aspects;  a live Barbershop, Tailoring presentation by Art Comes First, Dj sets from the likes of Norman Jay MBE, Film Screenings, Book Readings and discussions. 
This exhibition informed of the positive impact the generation now dubbed 'Windrush' had on Britain and showed the style and swagger of the 21st Century Rudeboy in full effect, a celebration of culture that resonates & vibrates today as it did then.
