Sally Smallwood, WRECKREATION

From her design studio in Annfield Plain, Sally and her team design and hand-make some of the most amazing garments you’ve ever seen, taking inspiration from motor racing and sci-fi, with a healthy dose of Nietzsche thrown in for good measure. Given some of her sources of inspiration, it’s no surprise that she recently caught the eye of the Shelby Corporation, home of the legendary AC Cobra, GT 500 and other iconic muscle cars.

Sally will be giving us an update on her recent trip to the US, and share some of the inspiration behind her latest Shelby inspired range.
