Last year Blues & Browns and Gordon Nicholson Kiltmakers had their first Outlandish collaboration featured in a five-page spread in the Scottish Field. Photographed below:
There is extensive embroidery involved in the outfit and that's where I come in! Hand sewing the motifs can take quite a while, so it's my job to sew them onto the garments so as to ensure Melinda the tailor can focus her expertise elsewhere. Either on the other garments for the photoshoot or on customer orders.
We went to some beautiful locations for the shoot which include, McNaughtan’s Bookshop and Gallery, the closes of the Royal Mile and the gorgeous Signet Library. Each place had a lovely historic atmosphere and serenity that just made it a small paradise on our doorstep.
It has been an amazing time at Blues & Browns as their intern. The amount of support they gave was staggering and the help and guidance has been immeasurable. I’ve been given the chance to really challenge myself and improve my skills! I will miss everyone so much, but don’t worry, I’ll still be around!
