This weekend is the long anticipated launch of the oh so exciting Edinburgh International Fashion Festival. For the next two weekends (19th – 28th of July) the most handsome couple in fashion (The Freemantle’s obv.) are presenting runways shows, exhibitions, gala parties and talks in some of the most unique and beautiful venues the city. Are you apart of the who’s who? No? Well get on it then!
The opening Gala will showcase the Clements Ribeiro A/W 13 collection within the jaw droppingly beautiful Mansfield Traquair. With an original musical score by Marty Hailey (award winning composer for television, documentary and theatre) and followed by an after-party in the same venue. Can you get more lah dee for your da?!
– The Fashion Fest at a Glance –
The Clements Ribeiro A/W collection is definitely one which caught my eye in February. The distinct Wally Tile esque prints, pointed collars, cashmere and erm… kilts actually give a slight nod to Scotland without even bending towards a stereotype – tough job when using kilts! They managed to keep the collection a nice balance of Sporty yet feminine which is also difficult to attain. Here are a few of my favourite looks from the runway, pass me some silver brogues please….
The Glasgow Glitteratti will be heading through in spades to attend all the events we can over the next few weeks. You can buy discounted tickets to all of the events on itison.com where you can also find some other wee fashion and beauty gems to attend! I’ll be hitting up the Future Fashion day on the 27th and doing my best to make the Closing Gala with Gianni Scumaci which also looks like a belter. Who will we be finding there?!
