Claire Barrow is renowned for her luxury hand-painted leather and unique illustrated aesthetic. Barrow’s design ethos of ‘do-it-yourself’ is both culturally and politically engaging, acting as a visual reflection of the evolution of British subculture. Her brand is steeped in the iconography of youth culture, making its positioning as a fixture on the London Fashion Week schedule relevant and exciting.
Born in Stockton-On-Tees, Claire Barrow moved to London in 2008 to study Fashion at the University of Westminster. She made her London Fashion Week debut with Fashion East for Spring/Summer 2013 and is now exhibiting with NEWGEN, an acclaimed support scheme set up by TOPSHOP and the British Fashion Council.
