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.
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 (2013 and 2017), Opening Ceremony (2017), Machine-A (2017), Joseph (2011), John Smedley (2016) and Melissa Shoes (2017). 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.”
“Claire Barrow is bored of people asking her whether she’s an artist or a fashion designer. She’s been disturbing the line between the two occupations, adorning clothes with distinctive, surreal scenes and characters of her own making. Barrow has blurred the line between fashion and art since her brand’s inception – now she has all but erased it.”
