My name's Kira Withers-Jones and I'm interested in the clothes and accessories that we wear and what they mean to us. After years of severe depression I started to be braver with my clothing choices, adding colour and pattern to my wardrobe. I'm not saying that this was the key to my improving mental health but I certainly think that it had something to do with it.

All of a sudden I was expressing myself externally. The creative thoughts and my rich imagination were starting to show, rather than being hidden away like a sordid secret. I started to feel more confident, more interesting, more noticeable and, well, more me! My aim now is to understand more about how what we wear affects how we feel, and how we can all explore our personality through our clothes.
