The Kings & Queens of Scottish Fashion are crowned at the 2014 Scottish Fashion Awards

The great and the good of Scottish fashion paid tribute to the winners and honourees of the 9th Annual Scottish Fashion Awards, co-hosted by The Secretary of State for Scotland Alistair Carmichael MP and awards founder & Chair Dr Tessa Hartmann. The glittering black tie gala and ‘Scottish Banquet’ was held at 8 Northumberland in London and presented by TV personality Laura Whitmore with the gala being attended by a host of stars from the fashion, music and entertainment industries. Pixie Lott performed a surprise acoustic set to the VIP audience.

HALL OF FAME 2014 DAME VIVIENNE WESTWOODDame Vivienne Westwood was inducted into the Hall of Fame for her undeterred loyalty and unparalleled love and passion for Scottish textiles and fabrics, which she has consistently used throughout her collections over the years. Christopher Kane was named Scottish Designer of the Year, whilst sixteen year old Jean Campbell was named Scottish Model of the Year having secured campaigns with Burberry and featuring in both British and Italian Vogue and singer Amy Macdonald was crowned Scottish Fashion Icon. Emerging talents were recognised with Hayley Scanlan who was presented with the Scottish Young Designer of the Year award and Colleen Leitch was named Scottish Graduate of the Year. William Chambers Millinery took home the Scottish Accessory Designer of the Year award and Abandon Ship Apparel received the Scottish Retailer of the Year.


SCOTTISH DESIGNER OF THE YEAR CHRISTOPHER KANETessa Hartmann said: “The Scots have played a significant part in the evolution of British fashion from our precious fabrics, yarns and textiles to our fashion designers, leading communicators and business players, many of whom were honoured here this evening. International designers continue to seek inspiration from our Scottish heritage and fabrics, and season after season we witness a tartan frenzy within collections manufactured and inspired by Scotland. In fact, one would be hard pressed to deny that the design talent that hails from our lands has purloined our hearts and changed the way we now look at Scottish fashion. This is more than a ‘fashion moment’, this is a legacy that we hope to continue and grow at the awards, where we gather for one night a year, invading this fine city and putting on a party to remember!”

Dubbed the ‘Oscars of Scottish Fashion’, VIP guests indulged in fine dining Scottish Banquet with Scottish scallops, Highland beef, neeps & tatties served with Haggis croquettes and to finish, a raspberry cranachan, strawberry shortbread and Mars Bar shot with tempura topping. The Russian Standard Vodka After Party served complementary Russian Mules whilst the guests danced the night away to the sounds of DJ duo, Beatnik.

Each guest received the ultimate goodie bag. A limited edition Holly Fulton for Radley tote was filled with gifts from Bobbi Brown, Toni & Guy, Deeside Water, Tunnocks, Walkers Shortbread, Hangover Mints, Russian Standard Vodka and Roundsquare Coffee. The most extravagant gift came from the events Official Jeweller, the world’s leading simulated diamond jewellery boutique – Tru Diamonds, who gifted each guest with diamond earrings and a necklace.
