You are right the carpet was not tartan but red but there was plenty of home-bred talent on show at this year's Scottish Fashion Awards. We have to start off with a bit of name dropping as our very own Stella Tennant won the Scottish Hall of Fame award for her 20 years service as an international supermodel. Currently the face of Chanel and cover star for many of the worlds leading fashion media we can boast that Stella lives in Duns where ScotlandShop is based and we see her at the school gates. Yes her 4 children do have the same fabulous look. So well done Stella! Christopher Kane won the Scottish Designer of the Year title with Hayley Scanlan as Scottish Young Designer of the Year. One of our favourite awards is for the Scottish Textiles Brand of the Year and the resurgence of tweed is highlighted yet again with Dashing Tweeds stunning collection of on-trend tweed garments and even Converse trainers. Yes we can make our tartan boots in tweed if you want to create your own style. Maybe we will have to use Annie Lennox' daughter Tali for our next photoshoot as she took home the Scottish Model of the Year prize for a second consecutive year. All in all a very glitzy turnout and another excuse to celebrate the wealth of design talent and manufacturing excellence we have here in bonnie Scotland. This very inspiration is behind ScotlandShop.
