Claire Barrow created this customised vintage biker jacket during the first LiveStudio of our Flora season. Programmed to coincide with our Flora exhibition, for which Nick Knight ventured into the world of the 'hand rendered' with a series of pieces that were manipulated manually post-printing, there seemed no-one better to join us than Barrow with her painterly techniques and flora-inspired designs. The designer was live on camera for two days, and customised the jacket with an array of roses painted from life.
Barrow created her design specifically for Faris Badwan, vocalist of British rock quintet The Horrors. Badwan's lyricism and look share Barrow's affinity with post punk culture and made him the perfect model to bring the creation to life in front of Nick Knight's camera on the final day of the broadcast.
We are now so delighted that the fruit of Barrow's labour is now on view at Shop as part of our current exhibition 'Flora', and that it is available to buy exclusively from SHOWstudio. Get yourself a wearable work of art now!
