My nans a biker | My collection takes inspiration from the story of my Nan and my Granddad who ran away from home to be in a biker gang in the sixties. Mixing leather and wool in feminine pastel colours with oversized boyfriend fit biker jackets, it blends the epitome of femininity with typical biker wear. Embellishment is a key look in my collection; inspired by typical floral prints, and sixties embellishment experiments, I have created a look that is both space age and feminine. Using a motorbike print by Rebecca Barnett, I have captured the story of my Nan’s life as a teenage biker on the road. The collection tells the tale of youth, freedom and liberation.
