Based in the United Kingdom, Street Style Surgery (SSS) is a social enterprise that offers workshops for youth in a variety of energizing fields including dance, filmmaking, music production and fashion design. The goal is for the young people to build self-confidence through learning -- some formal and some not -- and entrepreneurship. SSS was founded by Sissy Rooney whose background is in the fashion industry, where she worked at Bench and Hooch.

SSS is suitable for a range of activities and people including community days, intergenerational projects, after-school workshops, young offenders institutions and children's parties. Their website illuminates the bigger picture behind their quotidian activities: "Every day [SSS] show[s] young people from often troubled backgrounds that creativity can open doors to a better life -– and even lead to a fulfilling career."
