Amy Barrie is a Melbourne-born London-based designer who has recently graduated with a BA(Hons) from Central Saint Martins. Barrie has worked in the fashion industry in Melbourne, Paris and London.
Barrie’s creative vision celebrates the art of storytelling and the power of narrative. Storytelling predates the written word and every culture around the world uses narrative to bring understanding, meaning and beauty to the human experience. As we venture through life, we are shaped by the inspiring stories of those who have gone before us and those who journey with us.
Barrie incorporates the inspirational stories of extraordinary individuals into her work in order to empower the wearer as they travel through their own life-story. Lewis Carroll once described stories as ‘love-gifts’ and Barrie’s work is truly a labour of love. Her exceptional attention to detail and technical skill means that the Amy Barrie Brand offers a unique design-based story-telling experience.
