'The Working-Class Hero’ collection explores the tensions between government policies and how the working class in Britain are affected by them. A clash of athleisure and classic menswear, it explores the concept of ‘being proud to be British’ and how this might resonate with society today. 70s and 80s themes such as Thatcher’s Britain, the North/South divide, football culture, and the Windrush generation, infuse this collection and inform the development of its silhouette and the use of bold primary colours. The project celebrates the tireless battles that many minority groups have faced and overcome and depicts strength in solidarity.
