I thought it was about time I showed my lovely readers the latest fashion shoot I’ve directed for my work, The Scottish Design Exchange (SDX), an arts collective supporting Scotland-based creative talent. The purpose was to create a lookbook for SS17, showcasing clothing, jewellery and accessories from Scottish fashion designers that sell their products at SDX. I was lucky enough to collaborate once more with Britain’s Next Top Model contestant Simone Murphy just before she moved to London, along with a bunch of other fabulous Edinburgh folks.
Here are the details:
Model: Simone Murphy
Photographer: Marisa Bruce
Wardrobe Stylist/Creative Director: Ruth MacGilp
Make Up Artist: Naomi Baxter-Moore
Hair Stylist: Senay Taormina

Spring/Summer at Edinburgh Boutiques

 

This month there’s been some exciting new developments in Edinburgh’s thriving independent shopping scene. At the moment I’m loving Atticus Boutique and Elk & Wolf, brand new niche fashion and lifestyle stores in The Arches, and Kakao by K and Jane Davidson on Thistle Street. But my old favourites Covet and Godiva are on fire just now, with two fabulous events celebrating their respective Spring/Summer collections!

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!
