Scottish designers show wares on London catwalks

  • 18 September 2007

Christopher Kane has showcased his latest designs at London Fashion Week – bouncing back after part of his collection was stolen from his London studio just days before they were due to hit the catwalk.

The 25-year-old designer, who has worked with Versace, is one of eight young designers showing their talent at the event as part of the Glasgow: Scotland with Style Design Collective.

They are supported by the Scottish Government as well as the Glasgow City Marketing Bureau (GCMB).

Bailie Liz Cameron, vice chair of GCMB, said: “The Glasgow: Scotland with Style Design Collective initiative – now in its third season – provides a high-profile platform for these young designers, which not only raises awareness of their creativity to style setters, fashion buyers and media attending London Fashion Week but also converts into actual sales and press coverage of their work.”

Linda Fabiani, Scotland’s Minister for Europe, External Affairs and Culture, hosted a reception in the Natural History Museum and met with the designers.

Key buyers and members of the fashion industry also attended the event.

She said: “I am thrilled to support our talented young designers and show that Scotland is a great place to flourish both creatively and commercially.”
