Blackburn features in a new promotional film for the latest exclusive Adidas Spezial range

Darwen born designer Gary Aspden is celebrating the cultural phenomenon surrounding Acid House 30 years after the music scene exploded in the town. The global range is being released this month.

Gary explained:

Back then a group of regular kids from Blackburn – with a do it yourself spirit – collectively showed the rest of the country how it should be done. Thirty years on we wanted to celebrate this brilliant story of our town and culture through the Adidas Spezial range that I curate and design.

Councillor Phil Riley, Executive member for Regeneration at Blackburn with Darwen Council, said:

We are delighted that Gary continues to find ways to support Blackburn and Darwen through his creative work and look forward to some exciting future collaborations.
