Edinburgh International Fashion Festival: On bringing back the kilt and future fashions

 Top, Necklace & Shoes - Primark
Kilt - Charity Shop (similar here)
Jacket - Topshop
Broach - Kate Rowland

Does it make me some kind of ridiculous cliche to wear a kilt to a Scottish fashion event or just wildly unimaginative? Wendy from Thank Fifi was kind enough to say "You've made a kilt sexy" - and while I'd be the first to contest that, I also feel I could totes bring it back. No longer is the kilt reserved for school uniforms and weddings dollies. It's pretty much set to become a wardrobe staple for me over the next few months. After seeing this cheeky J.W Anderson one a while back I'd been dying to get something similair to add to my closet. I managed to pick up a few in different colours (although I suspect my red number does make me look like I belong on the side of some porridge oats) it feel like a good trans seasonal staple. Who am I kidding? I just like any kind of plaid print I can get my filthy wee paws on.

The Future's Fashion market and fashion show has for me, been the most hotly anticipated part of Edinburgh International Fashion Festival's programme. This year has been jam packed with some utterly cracking events, but it should suprise no one that seeing some fresh designs from my favourite Scottish designers was going to be an utter highlight for me. Let's face it - getting a lookbook is lovely and all but it doesn't even begin to come close to being able to see collections in the flesh.

Jacob Birge, Joyce Paton,Obscure Couture

It's so encouraging to see the vast range of talent we have working within Scotland today, and the opportunity to see some of my favourite independent designers under one roof was too good to pass up. Rebecca Torres is still pretty much the queen of colour with a new collection with some of the most AMAZING prints I ever did see. Still bold, graphic designs but with some new silouettes added. A few zips, a few splits and a wee sexy off the shoulder. The nude sheer used her new collection is to DIE for. Bebaroque still make the finest hoisery and bodies going with intricate beading and detail. There wasn't a single look from their collection I did not flat out adore. The big ones for me however were Obscure Couture and Jacob Birge. Obscure Couture's Weekend In Hell collection is something I've been waiting for for a while and it did not disapoint. The bondage dress that opened their catwalk was to die for but the fur cape from the RTW with the striped skater mad have been my top look. 
Recent graduate Jacob Birge is rapidly making a name for himself for his clean contemporary designs. Futuristic sports luxe - with the finest laser cut leather this lady ever laid eyes on, bright perspex visors and bold silhouettes with rounded shapes. Birge is certainly one to watch and definitely one we'll be seeing more from in future.

For me this is the end of my Edinburgh International Fashion Festival adventures for the year, but what I managed to see was phenomenal. It's wonderful to see more events like this North of the border and can't wait to see more like this. Already making space in my calender for next year.....

  1. I love that you are bringing the kilt back (and of course that feminist pin!). There are so many fab designers in Scotland right now.

    I'd love if you'd think about linking up to What I Wore Wednesday!

    1. Hah thanks! The feminist pin was a wee gift from the boy for valentine's day. That and a burrito. If that isn't modern romance I don't know what is. x
