Fashion & Freedom

Manchester Art Gallery

Female influence:
Kim Rowley

Layla Sailor

WW1 enabled women to have freedom. Pre WW1 they were restricted in fashion and lifestyle, but now they have a voice to choose how they live and are represented. I chose my art teacher, Kim Rowley as she has influenced me to embrace my culture, be unique and use my creativity in a positive way.

Because of WW1 I have the freedom to express myself. I chose to show this in my portrait by using bright and bold fabrics playfully tied in my hair. All the colours remind me of Kim’s own art work.
