WW1 has impacted hugely on each decade of fashion which has followed. I chose to represent my mum in my photograph as she is a strong, independent woman who has influenced me greatly. She has introduced me to great music, literature and we enjoy similar interests.

The album cover represents the 1980s, a time when I think people including my mum, expressed themselves through how they dressed in a more adventurous way than today. I think people were bolder and more defined in the 80s and 90s, where as now we may conform more.
