Spitfire 2016

by Jessica Barry



My womenswear collection ‘Spitfire’ was inspired by Tank Girl a British comic book character popular in the early 90’s and real Spitfire women from WW2 such as Lee Miller. Tank Girl the comic was strongly influenced by punk, dis-organisation and anarchy. The project grew to focus on military functional components i.e. zippers and pockets but executed through hand drawn and unconventional detailing and application to embody the spirit of the infamous Tank Girl.
