Twelve exhibitors have been selected by an
international panel of fashion and textiles experts to take part in
Scotland:Redesigned, a new industry led initiative aimed at championing Scotland’s
modern, vibrant fashion and textile sector to buyers and media in New York during
Scotland Week 2012.
I will be taking my own collection of Harris Tweed
garments combining silks tulles, pearls and lace along with some new pieces using
cloth by Scottish Mills. The pieces combine a woven tartan lace cloth
with pearl embroidery and layers of lace.
I will also be showcasing Spencer Clothing and I hope to see the ‘Clark Coat’ swaggering down the streets of Manhattan soon!
If you would like to stop by and say hello, make an
appointment or blog about the event do get in touch!
Exhibiting at 558 West 21st (at 12th

Just thought I would share the Clark Coat product shot with you, she is a beauty. Currently hanging in my studio the temptation to wear her is unbelievable. It must be kept pristine for the all important buyer at PURE so my swagger into town wearing my new coat will have to wait!
Shoes by Shhh boutique on Castle Street, well worth a visit. These boots are designed by architects. Fancy.
Exciting news, I have been appointed designer for
new clothing label SPENCER. Colin Gilchrist from The Social Tailor and I have been
working hard over the last few months to produce this new womenswsear label and
are shooting the collection on Tuesday!
Our model is the beautiful Anna Freemantle who
will be photographed by Reuben Paris. Bloggers
are invited to attend the shoot and have a piece of the collection named after
them. You can read more about this at you shiny new blog SPENCER CLOTHING.
I am currently writing from our manufacturer where I am watching the samples come of the line. What a team; the skilled workers produce garments for the likes of Karen Millen and Coast, they are the magicians of the industry! The new
coat I have designed is just being finished off as I type and it is gorgeous. I
want one already so keep your eyes peeled as we unveil images in due course.
We are heading to PURE London between the 12th
-14th of February. Our stand is in the main hall towards the back on
the left hand side in the STUDIO section in a 20 square metre stand numbered:
M102. So if you are attending please pop in to say hello!
Exciting times – Pictures soon! And more info to follow.
