I'm glad you're talking about Scotland (I'm living there, so...). There is also the Edinburgh international fashion festival which is about to launch very soon (26/29 april), with Vivienne Westwood, Jonathan Saunders, April Chrichton, Niki Taylor and all these people coming. I'm reading your blog since a while now, and I never took one minute to say "bravo", but it's one of my favorites :-)

i'm happy to see that everyone is starting to appreciate the creative talent that scotland has to often we look to other countries for inspiration when really its on our doorstep. I
would like to view some work by the latest awards winners, so if possible it would be great to see some links to these websites on this blog. ta
