ABOUT EVE BARLOW
Eve Barlow is an LA-based freelance journalist for The Guardian, Los Angeles Times, GQ, New York Magazine, Pitchfork, Playboy and Billboard, among many others. Barlow is also a Contributing Editor at Q Magazine and was formerly NME’s Deputy Editor.

ABOUT CATRIONA GOURLAY
Catriona and Amy were close friends for many years and lived together in Camden during the period that formed the basis of the songs that became the record Back to Black.

At the time, Catriona worked locally in vintage shops on Camden high street and in the Stables market. This heavily influenced Amy from a stylistic point of view; her look began to reflect the girls she was spending time with, eventually becoming the signature-recognized silhouette associated with her.

Professionally, Catriona is a recruiter for the Music industry. In addition to her full time role, Catriona works closely with the Amy Winehouse Foundation on the ‘Amy’s Yard’ program whose aim is to support the personal development of disadvantaged young people through music.

ABOUT NAOMI PARRY
Naomi is a London-based creative director and costume designer.

She has over a decade of experience spanning music, TV, film and advertising with many high-profile clients – most notably Amy Winehouse who she worked with on all major appearances and performances from 2006 culminating in the creation of her bespoke final tour wardrobe in 2011.

Tired of the constant stream of negative press surrounding Amy, with so much focus on her demise and little on her many achievements, she set up the multi-platform project ‘Beyond Black’ in 2019 which celebrates Amy as a cultural icon. With a series of exhibitions running between 2020 and 2021 to mark the 10 years since her passing, she also spearheads other projects utilizing her and the estate’s private collections to continue Amy’s legacy and raise awareness for The Amy Winehouse Foundation.
