The story unfolds……
Tartan is one of the most recognisable cultural icons anywhere in the world. It is also a metaphor for interconnectedness, interdependence, equality and diversity; therefore this tartan can be used to illustrate humanity’s desire for a harmonious and sustainable future.
The World Peace Tartan was created to promote a global message of peace. The striking light blue in the design is representative of the presence, hope and potential of the United Nations. Scotland is represented at the heart of this enterprise through the purple and green of the Scottish thistle. The red and black in the design represent and remind us of the realities of war and violence and the great need for a new living culture of nonviolence with the white running through the pattern proving a counterbalance in being symbolic of peace and light.
In the Studio
Making the coat was really exciting, I love what the tartan represents; each piece of the tartan is so symbolic. The bustle was made using scarves from the Dalai Lama along with my own scarves from my travels to Nepal. The scarves known as ‘Khatas’ are a traditional ceremonial scarf which symbolises purity and compassion.
The strong message woven within the fabric combined with the Khata’s really gives the coat a profound significance and dramatic silhouette. I wanted the coat to convey a sense of strength and have named it ‘The Peaceful Warrior.’ Where ever the wearer goes the emblematic message of tartan and the Khata scarves will billow behind the wearer.
See the coat in its début catwalk appearance on April 8th at From Scotland With Love, New York City!

A snippet of our 10 page feature in Bell Armoire Magazine where Judy talks about her life, work and career as a fashion designer.
“In our house as children we always sat ‘round the table with crayons and pencils, clay, glitter pens — anything we could get our hands on. It was a creative kitchen where my sisters and I were encouraged to get our hands dirty and have some fun,” Judy remembers. It’s still the site of much creative brainstorming. “My kitchen table is one of my favourite places to be. The table has been the same since we were tiny tots standing underneath it. It’s a table full of memories, from the creative arty days, baking days, weird boyfriend days, and now the days of chatting about our different lives, creative paths, the good times, and the wine times!”
Thanks to all involved in the various photo-shoots used throughout the magazine. x
