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
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.
