About Me

Hi, I’m Catherine a graduate from Manchester Fashion Institute

I am a multi-disciplinary creative from the North West specialising in graphic design and photography. My work centres around history, music and politics and I am always looking for interesting ways to merge the three with fashion.

I am always keen to use my experiences as a working class creative from the North West to inform my work and it is something I am very proud to represent. I am eager to create work that is impactful and I also like exploring narratives and using my chosen mediums to tell stories.

INSPIRATION

My initial idea came from my interests in the revival of subcultures and the ways they’re recycled

Subcultures have always been a point of interest for me, especially in the formation of my personal style. But with this project I was intrigued to learn how/if they were being recycled and revived through fashion. I wanted to create a publication that explored the relevance of subcultures within the lives of young adults in their 20’s in today’s society.

I wanted the publication to almost be a journey of discovery, and I was inspired by the ways subcultures have been used by young adults throughout history as a way of expressing their true identities. I wanted the publication to remind people of the importance of just being yourself and I wanted to represent this through colourful imagery and graphics.

MY WORK

PORTFOLIOS

DETAIL

I interviewed three people with strong connections to subcultures

Interviewing and photographing people in a an environment that best suited them and their style really opened my eyes to the impact subcultures have on people’s identities. Even if they don’t directly identify as a member of a subculture, the influence of them is still strong. I initially believed from my research that subcultures no longer existed in the 21st century but what I discovered was that they never disappear, they simply evolve and change with the times.

I want to create work that explores interesting and important themes and I feel as creatives we have the ability to invoke conversation and thought.
