SDX Textiles

 

Last Thursday I launched a brand new textiles department at my work, the Scottish Design Exchange, supporting Scotland-based print designers for textiles and wallpapers. I am really excited to finally be able to add some of the country’s most talented textile designers to our community of local creatives. Huge thanks to Edinburgh musicians Jack Hinks and Sean Munro for kicking off the party with a brilliant acoustic set, and for everybody who came to celebrate with me!

London Fashion Week Festival

Many bloggers, myself included, have the tendency to sugarcoat less than perfect experiences with brands in an attempt to maintain a PR-friendly image. But I’m going to be totally honest with you about my day at London Fashion Week Festival 2017, the newly revamped and relocated London Fashion Weekend. It kinda sucked.

Don’t Walk Fashion 2017

 

Don’t Walk Fashion, a collective launched in 2001, host an annual runway show in St Andrews, Scotland that delves into a multi-media world to explore beyond the parameters of fashion to speculate on the many puzzles that face modern society and challenge forms of systematic inequality. 
 
Thanks to new student social networking site Campus Society, I got an inside look into the conceptual catwalk last night.

Charity Fashion Takeover

 

Last week I spent a brilliant day at Barnardos in Stockbridge in a charity fashion collaboration. My challenge was to recreate some London Fashion Week street style looks using only garments and accessories available at the retail store. I am passionate about ethical shopping, and what better way to do it than supporting a good cause too. This outfit was inspired by an Alexa Chung street style look, and we managed to recreate it with items all costing £20 and under! Read on to see the other looks we created using quality pre-loved fashion.
