Glasgow Caledonian University – Fashion finalists
Glasgow Caledonian University’s second year Fashion Design with Business students worked on their latest design project with a live client to provide real world experience to their learning. MacGregor and MacDuff are Scotland’s leading highlandwear outfitter with four stores across Glasgow, Edinburgh and Ayr. Students were tasked with designing a contemporary fashion streetwear outfit incorporating accents of tartan fabrics to bring Scotland’s heritage cloth to a new audience. The live brief was also ran as a competition, with the winning student having their final outfit displayed in the MacGregor and MacDuff shop window in Glasgow city centre. Students presented their final design to MacGregor and MacDuff before manufacture began in December 2022 and then the final selection was made by MacGregor and MacDuff at the annual fashion show in June 2023. At the final judging two students were selected for their work to be displayed.
The winning students are Emily Malcomson and Abby Craig.
The students’ work will be displayed in the window of MacGregor and MacDuff: King of Kilts at 39-41 Bath Street, Glasgow, G2 1HW a map showing the walking route from GCU can be found here.
The store will be open Monday-Sunday 10am – 5pm. However, they work on an appointment basis, so access into the store will not be open to the public unless a special arrangement is made.
Information about contacts forthcoming.
