London designer takes part in New York customisation exhibition.

Last Friday we were with London Fashion Week designer Claire Barrow as she took part in an exhibition in New York. It was a celebration of customisation of jackets and where better to hold it but by the punk landmark of Tompkins Square Park.

Claire made an amazing biker jacket made entirely of paper! She illustrated the arms in ink but doused the jacket in water throughout the night in order for it be become used & abused by the end of the night. Claire also exhibited a poster in the show where hip NY band Cerebral Ballzy performed a rowdy set to end the night.
