About SR:D Glasgow
SR:D Glasgow for the very first time in Scotland hosted a showcase and runway featuring luxury knitwear produced from SR:D Hawick. It’s the exciting manufacturing venture between British brands and historic knitwear factory, Hawick Knitwear and Paisley pattern pieces from Pringle of Scotland’s AW17 collection.
This Year’s Guests & Event Panel
It included Owner and Director at Jane Davidson, Sarah Murray, Group Brand & Marketing Manager at Harvey Nichols, Gemma Hare, co-founder at GRAS Architects Gunnar Groves-Raines, Communications & Business Development Manager at Bute Fabrics Wendy Murray and Fashion Historian / Media Communications & Events Director, Paul Bhari amongst others. There were also talks chaired by Fashion Journalist Hilary Alexander alongside Director at Fashion Scout and Graduate Fashion Week, Martyn Roberts and legendary fashion designer, Pam Hogg.
Thrilled To Be Involved
The Rainbow Room International Artistic Team was thrilled to be involved with the first showcase and fashion runway for Scotland RE:Designed. Taking inspiration from the Andreas Kronthaler for Vivienne Westwood SS18 show, hair styling consisted of sleeked back, slightly gelled hair, adding texture on the ends created with tongs and crimpers, and a slight peek of slim braids, deep side partings and twisted fringes.
A Word From Yasmin
Yasmin McMail, Rainbow Room International’s Salon Director and Owner of the George Square salon commented; “we were thrilled to be involved with the first fashion runway for Scotland RE:Designed and to have the opportunity to present our hair to fashion industry leaders was a real honour.”
