Working as a dresser, I was given the opportunity to be totally hands-on with the designers and models, and was lucky enough to see all the amazing garments up close. From Fair Feathered Friend’s striking headpieces to Brian Chan’s crazy, artistic creations, and Betty Spoke’s stunning dresses, each designer brought their own unique style to the show.
My personal favourite label from the night was Dawntroversial. Designer Dawn Smith started her brand by customising shoes, but has now branched out to clothes, accessories and even hair extensions. After last night I am totally obsessed with her pastel painted creepers and slogan beanie hats, and have found myself wishing she could customise my whole wardrobe!
Thankfully there were no repeats of the power cut which had caused Nightwalk to be postponed from its original October date, and the catwalk show ran without a hitch. Nightwalk’s director, Angie Koorbanally, did such a great job yet again, as did the designers, models, dressers and everyone else who helped to make the night a success. The buzz and atmosphere backstage was so much fun to be part of, and I hope I can return to many more Nightwalks to watch Scotland’s fashion talent grow and grow.
