June 22nd, 2018 marks the 70th anniversary of the SS Empire Windrush arrival at Tilbury Docks carrying Caribbean workers to help rebuild Britain after World War II. `Style In My DNA' by Jamaican born fashion designer Lorna Holder chronicles 70 years of different fashion trends within the British Caribbean community and the influence it had on the overarching British fashion industry. The book includes exclusive and never before seen fashion photography, illustrations and analysis of Caribbean people in Britain from the late forties and continues right up to the present day. Also included are the memoirs of Lorna Holder, a child of the Windrush generation, who went on to become the first black graduate in fashion to pass through the then Nottingham Trent Polytechnic, a successful fashion designer, producer, author, curator and active figure within London's Caribbean Community. To bear witness to the fundamental ways Caribbean culture and fashion have shaped the UK and beyond, is to ensure that the significant contributions made throughout the years, will never be forgotten.
