Claire Barrow is a London-based multidisciplinary visual artist. Born in Stockton-on-Tees in 1990, Barrow studied Fashion at the University of Westminster.
Barrow draws from her own experiences and DIY culture to address both modern identity and social issues within her work, applying her art onto everything from clothing to canvas, and within both physical and digital spaces. She made her London Fashion Week debut in 2012 and has since strived to explore new and surprising ways to present her hybrid work.
Her October 2018 public art show in a shop front of Piccadilly Circus Underground station, London entitled 'Pig Latin Library' was seen by millions of commuters. As well as working on her own collections, shows and special projects, Barrow has also collaborated with several luxury brands and retailers including Matchesfashion.com, Opening Ceremony, Machine-A, Joseph, John Smedley and Melissa Shoes. Her work has received critical acclaim in fashion and culture media press and won her a legion of industry fans.
“Claire Barrow is known for obscuring the norm. First and foremost with her work as both an artist and a fashion designer with which she has complete fluidity between the two.”- i-D
