Claire Barrow is a 22 year old design graduate from Westminster University who shot to fame within the fashion world after her part time hobby of painting vintage leather jackets became a career after it was picked up by Vogue Fashion Editor Francesca Burns and singer Rihanna. Her colourful, intricate and punk influenced hand painted jackets have since gained the designer a solid reputation within the fashion industry.
Last week saw her graduate show which included hand painted silk shirts, beaded collars and of course her signature painted leather jackets. Underground proudly sponsored footwear for the show which can be seen below. Go to Claire’s website for further information www.clairebarrow.com.
