What are you doing this weekend? If you’re not heading down to the Designer Pop-up Shop at Princes Square, Glasgow then you should be! Seven of the brightest and best Scottish designers will be selling one off editorial samples and seasonal stock at discounted prices for one weekend only.
Join womenswear designers Rebecca Torres and Joanne McGillivray, jewellers Georgia Wiseman and Rene Walrus and accessories designers Bebaroque, Rosie Sugden and Karen Mabon for an evening of fashionable bargains sponsored by Rekorderlig cider (my favourite!).
You already know all about Joanne McGillivray from my feature on her recent Spring Summer 2014 collection launch. The Scottish Fashion Awards Graduate of the Year 2012 makes figure flattering womenswear that’s impossible to resist. Her equally esteemed peer Rebecca Torres makes super slinky dresses that are most definitely guaranteed to make you look good on the dancefloor. Both ladies are, incidentally, taking part in another pop-up opening at House of Fraser, Glasgow in the coming weeks.
For the sparkle hunters, get yourself in on the Georgia Wiseman and Rene Walrus action. Both ladies are lovely and more importantly absolute jewellery geniuses – check out their websites and see for yourself.
Last and by no means least a trio of amazing accessories designers that make me happy in very different ways. The girls from Bebaroque have officially made hosiery (and the super tight body) cool. With Lady Gaga and Katy Perry on their customer database the Accessory Designer of the Year winners are definitely doing everything right. Whilst you’re snapping up some tights why not prep for the snow ahead with a scarf and bobble hat from Rosie Sugden, her silky smooth Cashmere is irresistable, snuggly and keeps you toasty warm.
Miss Karen Mabon is another creative whizz that you won’t see on the high street. Her perfectly illustrated silk scarves are cute and sartorial in equal measure. Race you to the checkout to bag one of these beauties!
Go on – support local independent fashion designers this weekend by visiting their pop-up shop on the Ground Floor of Princes Square, Glasgow.
