Claire Barrow is a fashion designer fêted for her hand-painted unisex leather designs. Originally from Stockton-on-Tees, Barrow's London fashion week debut was presented as part of Fashion East in September 2012. Her unique aesthetic has won her a legion of fans from Vogue’s Francesca Burns to Rihanna, and plaudits from Vogue, Dazed & Confused (they commissioned a film of her graduate collection), Grazia, i-D and The Independent. Barrow has undertaken various collaborations with the likes of  Joseph and Underground. Celebrated for her DIY punk aesthetic, Barrow aims to ‘provide people with a piece of art which they can wear and keep forever like they would a painting on a canvas.’
