The world's most influential artists, designers, models and musicians are choosing London as their creative base – and they all descended on Shoreditch to check in at the Converse One Star Hotel.

Located in the heart of Shoreditch, the One Star Hotel celebrated counter-culture and this generation's anti-heroes with rooms curated by the likes of A$AP Nast, Yung Lean and MadeMe; live music into the early hours from acts including IAMDDB, Princess Nokia and Slowthai; workshops and panels featuring Paria Farzaneh and The Basement; and a long list of exclusive sneaker drops.
