Theatre

Citizen’s Theatre

Hamlet (19th September – 11th October 2014)

Dirty Dancing (Wednesday 10th – Saturday 20th September 2014)

The Tron Theatre

Janis Joplin Full Tilt (Thursday 11th – Saturday 13th September 2014)

A gritty, gripping tribute to godmother of rock.

Scottish Fashion Awards 2013

Scotland’s fashion pioneers were honoured at the Scottish Fashion Awards, now in its 8th consecutive year this week.

Held in the prestigious Dover House in London, industry heads, designers and models graced a luscious red carpet for one of the glitziest and glamorous events in the fashion calendar. Hosted by style icon and TV Presenter, Laura Whitmore,  the audience included Bishopbriggs-born singer Amy McDonald, Olympic Medalist, Michael Jamieson and model, David Gandy.

Known for her bright, flowery, baby doll-inspired Autumn collection, designer Jennifer Morris accepted “Young Designer Of The Year” in a fitting pretty pale dress. Adding to her George Gold Award win in June, Lauren Smith won “Scottish Graduate Of The Year for her colourful printed outfits.

After featuring in US, Italian and British Vogue and Vanity Fair, Mary Charteris won “Scottish Model Of The Year”. For their handmade wooden sunglasses, which are stocked in London, Paris and Dubai, Finlay & Co. scooped “Scottish Accessory Designer Of The Year”  

For her skin-tight cat suits that were inspired by the punk era and have gained celebrity following for the past four seasons, Pam Hogg picked up the “Creative Excellence” award. She accepted in an edgy white trouser suit, showing off her sunflower hair.

Chosen by the general public, Scottish treasure Emeli Sande received the “Scottish Fashion Icon” award for her simple, elegant yet eccentric look she’s known for. The singer/songwriter’s silver crop and crimson lips beat off competition from Amy McDonald and Wimbledon 2013 champion, Andy Murray.

The highly sought after “Scottish Designer Of The Year” trophy was awarded, for the third time, to designer Christopher Kane. The Kane brand features detailed outfits breaking bounds in textiles, print and colour and has made appearances in Topshop, Barney’s and even the awards ceremony audience; both “Downton Abbey” actress Laura Carmichael and host Laura Whitmore were adorned in Kane creations.

Aside from the plaques, the winners’ prize for gracing Scotland and the world with their unique styles was a true Scottish banquet: scallops and haggis, lemon tart with Irn Bru granite and of course, Auchentoshan Malt Whiskey. Entertainment was Mel Gibson yelling “Freedom” in the background.

Just Kidding.
