About scottishfashionindex

A new project designed to track Scotland's fashion industry and connect creatives.

Big news: the Scottish Fashion Index is live! Please share!

Who’s Who in Scottish Fashion:

What’s What in Scottish Fashion:
https://scottishfashionindex.com/whats-what/

Between those we’ve accumulated more than 800 entries. We’re just 2 people trying to help people and companies connect and collaborate, so help us help you. We’re sure there’s mistakes and omissions so we’re asking for your help:

  • Tell us if you are wrongly listed or missing (link)
  • Please share this, so we can get the whole industry indexed and help everyone connect and collaborate.

The lists are only alphabetical for now – when we get more detail we can look at subdividing them into more tailored useful lists. Let us know what you think. We know we have a lot to learn here.

Simultaneous Success and Failure with Hiring

Our last post was a big success and a big failure:

  • SUCCESS: Lots of people came through to see what jobs were posted
  • FAILURE: no-one had roles to post

Perhaps no-one wanted to be first, or they didn’t realise how many people were looking at the post because it didn’t have much comments.

We won’t give up on trying to find ways to help people collaborate. If we try this again we might make sure we get 5-10 real jobs listed as a baseline to get people started.

They say don’t ask a barber if you need a haircut. But do checkout the photo guide to cashmere from Lynne McCrossan for Cross Cashmere.

Beginnings.

Hello!

My name is Debbie, and I’ve always been passionate about fashion. I grew up sketching dresses with my gran, poring over Vogue magazines, and a lot of time researching online.

This project is all about researching, tracking and hopefully connecting the amazing creatives living in Scotland. With the help of my (very patient) husband, we’ve already put hours upon hours into researching current and up-and-coming creatives in Scotland and putting them into a spreadsheet.
I’m currently working my way through organising the spreadsheet and hope to bring you information on the amazing fashionistas of Scotland, with some dashes of Scottish fashion history in there.

I’m excited to continue this venture in a new manner.
Bye for now!
