Scottish fashion and textiles

Two models pose on the iconic entrance stairs in The Lighthouse, helping promote two upcoming Scottish fashion and textiles events taking place on Thursday, 2 March.

The events will take place at The Lighthouse, Scotland’s Centre for Design & Architecture, both focusing on innovation and design in Scottish fashion and textiles.

Fashioned in Glasgow will host its first fashion show featuring a mix of emerging fashion brands and independent designers, showcasing the vibrant industry here in Scotland.

Fashioned in Glasgow, which was a Kickstarter campaign, wants to help Glasgow feature firmly in the British fashion industry, supporting designers at various stages of their development. The fashion show is sold out!

In addition to the fashion show event, Scottish Textile and Leather Association (STLA) will hold its ‘hot of the press’ trends event (also fully booked), which will discuss the latest trends in design, fashion, textiles and products.

The content will be anchored around analysis of new business models driven by the digital age, including the digital disruption of the fashion calendar, market growth areas and sustainable supply chain.

Scottish fashion and textilesIan Elder, The Lighthouse said: “We’re delighted to feature both of these events at The Lighthouse, demonstrating Glasgow and indeed Scotland, is ever-evolving in the world of fashion and textile design.
