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!

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.

Ladyboss Collective #girlgang

Since opening in May 2016 in Edinburgh’s old town, Ladyboss Collective, founded by Amber Vermeulen, has gathered a reputation for being the local go-to for locally, female-made art and fashion while creating the coolest nail art in a totally kitsch atmosphere (with Beyonce blasting in the background of course). I popped in yesterday night for a chat with Amber and a quick gel manicure, and left totally inspired by the creativity and the aesthetic. A young, independent business that supports not only other young independent businesses but also homeless women, LGBT rights and female creative empowerment.

How to Style: Nu Blvck Pyjama Scarf

Following on from Wednesday’s post, here is another in the Nu Blvck series from our ‘Ways to Style’ photoshoot with Holly May Wesley, featuring the large pyjama scarf in the rust/navy colour way, and the small pyjama scarf in dark grey tied to my navy grab bag. I styled this look very simply, with a taupe Hayley McSporran top, a Forever 21 brass pendant, Mandi Candi Boutique boots and some H&M high waisted black jeans.
