Meet 17 year old Laura; today’s subject in my 365 day project.
With her brightly coloured hair (which she changes once or twice a month) and attention grabbing vintage dresses, she’s certainly not one to miss.
Laura works full time at upstaged vintage near the corn exchange, where I met her today handing out flyers.
She moved out of home aged 16 and explains that although it was a scary move at such a young age, as soon as she left, her relationship with her mother got much stronger. She now lives in a 3 bed house with her friend Dara and a street cat they found named ‘baby cat’.
Away from work Laura likes travelling to different city’s and has big things to say about Huddersfield. “Its bigger than you think its gonna be, the charity shops are much better, there’s Huddersfield market and lots of vintage shops” which are perfect for finding clip on earrings to add to her ‘hideous collection’.
She is currently saving up for a festival in Blackpool which falls on her 18th birthday. However she would also like to save up to travel further and see European cities such as Amsterdam.
