Scottish Fashion Awards

The fashion industry in Scotland contributes in excess of £750 million a year to the UK economy and the annual Scottish Fashion Awards attract worldwide interest.

Congratulations to this year's winners, most especially to the talented Jonathan Saunders, who has won the top accolade of Designer of the Year  for the second year in a row.

Clad  in a Christopher Kane green lace dress, Samantha Cameron graced the Glasgow event along with a coterie of celebrity fashionistas. However, it was Shirley Bassey, wearing a head turning tartan Graeme Black gown with a sporran for a purse, who stole the show as far as we were concerned.

Just wow, what a lady! But (if you'll forgive the shameless self-promotion) there's no need to be a Big Spender to play up the plaid or rock the tartan.

Meanwhile, we have been inspired to look into recycling grandad's old sporran!
