The Scottish Design Exchange is a unique concept store and not-for-profit creative community, bringing artists and designers together to share a new retail space in Edinburgh that benefits the both makers and customers.
Today's ramblings are long overdue; a post all about the Fashion Bloggers event I organised for The Scottish Design Exchange. I want to thank all the lovely Scottish bloggers that came along, and those who took pictures and notes, I salute you! Here are some more great write-ups of the event by Twenty Something City and DIY Shopaholic. The photos throughout this post were taken by my wonderful best friend Skye Lyon (you can check out her work at www.facebook.com/SkyeLyonImages) but you can see more snaps from my project on the SDX Fashion Instagram, just click here!
I was thrilled to see blogging duo Wardrobe Conversations on the night, and I adored the girls trying on some gorgeous headwear by Kitsch Me Vintage. Each piece is designed and made by hand in Scotland by the talented Michelle Watson, who even makes the mannequin heads herself too! And thanks to retro chic blogger Miss Vicky Viola too for your praise for Glasgow fashion brand Never Monday!
I think what made the event such a success for me (apart from the lovely lot buying some of our products of course!) was getting the chance to network with the guests and talk passionately about what we are all about. The team has worked so hard on this project so it was fantastic to get the feedback we deserve! You can find out more about SDX here
Other fabulous guest included Edinburgh blogging babes Louise (fromLittle Things) and Kate (from Northern Bliss) who loved checking out the fashion line Distortia, by Joey Cheng, which consists of colourful crochet tops (perfect for festivals!), two-tone crop tops and kaleidoscopic bomber jackets.
I want to say a big thank you as well to Sarah (Urbanity's co-founder!) for being an excellent barmaid and of course to Jack (www.facebook.com/jackhinksmusic) for entertaining us all with mellow acoustic guitar.
Fashionistas, keep your eyes peeled for more exciting events!
