Limited Edition - CONCRETE GIRLS X NIXON Watch.
These unique watches are available to buy from Nixon London Store on request.
Would make for a lovely gift for someone special or a cool gift for yourself!
Had the pleasure of being interviewed by the very talented writer Alex Simms for Refinery 29.
The article also features some of the loveliest crews in the scene, Girls Can’t Skate, Prom Queen Social Club and Rollin With The Girls.
The passionate Kellie Simpson offers insight into her view on the scene and she is quite frankly a modern day Heroin. So much time for this lady.
Grab a coffee and have a read.
Last night I was Kindly invited down to attend one of the regular hang out’s for girl skaters in Cardiff ‘Prom Queen Social Club’. I was greeted with hugs and smiles - such a LUSH as the welsh crew would say.
One thing I’ve taken away from tonight is these girls are not only here to learn how to skate, they are here to get away from the troubles of life!
I felt so honoured to listen to some of these girls stories, the fact they could open up to me and talk was a very humbling feeling.
I think most skateboarders have felt outsiders, punks or thought “something’s not quite right here, the world is f**ked up” and to find a safe place to escape is very important to these girls.
I’m glad these girls have somewhere to go to be themselves amongst men ( boyfriends being supportive on the sideline or dads carrying the packed lunches ) and women -

Last night I was lucky enough to be apart of a collective of photographers and artists featured at Doomed Gallery Dalston, London for the WE CAN FLY 2 Film premiere.
