This week sees the start of the fourth Edinburgh International Fashion Festival on the 23rd July. This year the festival is focusing on sustainability, education and digital relevance and has a wide ranging and interesting program of events and talks to attend. One of these events is the Makers Market on 25th/26th July which is taking place right here at Hill Street Design House. Along with my fellow resident Hill Streeters we will be joined by some of the best designers and makers in Scotland. See who is taking part here. All the hill street residents will have their studios open and I will have my stand in my studio so its a great opportunity to have a nose and see where everything gets made ( I promise it will be tidy)
I am currently manically sewing away in the studio creating a selection of new pieces which will be for sale over the weekend. Some of my best selling designs like the Jessie Dress and scalloped edge shorts will be made up in some gorgeous new prints and patterns and also a couple of new one-off pieces. I will also have a sale rail of previous season pieces all either one-offs or limited editions. It is a great opportunity to support independent and local designers so look forward to seeing lots of your faces this weekend.
