Fashion Week to begin in Scotland’s capital

No, you’re not dreaming, fashion week is about to arrive in Edinburgh. Don’t think that Chanel, Yves Saint Laurent, Mark Jacobs or Prada will present new styles of “haute couture” kilts. This is the first time since 2006 that the fashion week is going to take place in Edinburgh.

In 2006, Vivienne Westwood and Matthew Williamson staged shows during a one-off festival. This time the event is promoting the amazing independent clothes shops of Edinburgh over an entire week.

The fashion blogger Laura Russell said as follows: “Having major couture designers is exciting, but for most people the clothes are out of reach. This fashion week will show what is in Edinburgh stores – and it will show just how versatile, stylish and cutting edge they are.”
