The gorgeous gothic princess from Stockton-on-Tees, Claire Barrow, makes fashion and art, and, occasionally, riot grrrl music videos (for Spooky by Skinny Girl Diet). She’s dyed her hair every colour of the rainbow and worn it in every possible way; when she was 16 she had a Mohican (her family hated it). Since graduating from the University of Westminster, with a degree in Fashion Design, Claire has collaborated with Joseph, done a capsule line for Matches, and created the most incredible collections, conjuring up darkly seductive paintings such as The Jewel Lake Ritual - which features naked teens ceremonially re-birthing themselves in milky, moonlit waters, while encouraging us to not be afraid - and sending veiled corpse brides and salmon-shaped clutches down the catwalk. She is currently sponsored by Lulu Kennedy’s Fashion East initiative.
