AW16 Spirit of Adventure
Inspired by the 1928 Barbour catalogue which featured North East heroine Grace Darling on the cover. During a tempestuous storm in 1838, Grace Darling aged just 22, the daughter of a lighthouse keeper, participated in the rescue of survivors from the shipwrecked ‘Forfarshire’. Through Grace Darling’s brave actions, nine members of the crew were saved. The Spirit of Adventure collection features a maritime inspired wardrobe of clothes celebrating the actions of this courageous young lady and fearless heroines everywhere.
