Last year was such a stunning event; the food was extraordinary, the interior design a wonderful spectacle and the people were entertaining and chatty, making a beautifully vibrant atmosphere.

Burberry Prorsum Show at London Fashion Week.

Ponchos and blanket wraps were draped up and down the fashion catwalks for AW14; London, Paris, Milan, Tokyo, all sashaying in luxurious fabrics, making such a remarkable statement. Burberry Prorsum exhibited a fantastic display with their woollen army of stylishly blanketed ladies. Like our lambswool blankets, these colour-blocked, equestrian blankets are made in Scotland, reinforcing their wonderfully British aesthetic.

The Edinburgh shop dressed in new Early Autumn stock.

I love swinging by Edinburgh whenever I can, not just for the colourful patrons and my dedicated work staff in our local Brora shop, but for the dynamic culture this capital city has to offer! I regularly travel north to Scotland to our mills in Hawick and Elgin, often via the family home in Cumbria, however this time I’ve been lucky enough to catch goings on of The Edinburgh Fringe Festival; an incredible three week celebration of the arts and entertainment.
