City Stylin' #12

We searched high and low for the most stylish of Notts heads with summat to say...

I’m from Liverpool, but I’m visiting the area for work. I’ve never done Nottingham, so I thought I’d come and see what it’s all about.

The clothes I put on in the morning depends on what mood I’m in. Sometimes it can be jeans and boots, the next day it could be a blouse, jeans and trainers, on another day, a skater skirt. I was in a comfortable mood this morning. I’m not usually a fan of high street stores, but I bought this jacket from Marksy’s. Whenever I wear it my husband calls me Adam Ant.

I’m a seamstress, so every now and then I’ll make something myself. I’ve got two weeks left to finish making my dress for Aintree, and the material is just sitting there, staring at me. I love making my own clothes; it means I don’t have to look like anyone else. It’s the same with my hair. One day, I walked into the hairdresser and said, “Just chop it all off and bleach it.”

We have a favour to ask…

LeftLion is Nottingham’s meeting point for information about what’s going on in our city, from the established organisations to the grassroots. We want to keep what we do free to all to access, but increasingly we are relying on revenue from our readers to continue. Can you spare a few quid each month to support us?
