Scotland Re:Designed is a platform from which Scottish fashion designers and textile companies can build, establish and secure new and ongoing business relationships with media and customers, over time creating new collaborations, achieve short and long term sales, open PR opportunities and boost their brand profiles.

In September 2013, Scotland Re:Designed opens up applications to all Scottish fashion, textiles and accessory designers with an international panel of fashion and textile experts judging each applicant, before selecting the hottest new talent and winning the chance to exhibit at SR:D 2013.

Once selected, exhibitors receive the invaluable knowledge and support that the SR:D platform delivers with a number of industry and public events throughout the year providing mentoring, workshops, exhibitions, showrooms, buyer events and catwalk shows. The world’s top fashion buyers, journalists and industry figures are invited to indulge in the luxurious world of Scottish Fashion.

Scottish fashion and textile brands are continuing to expand their businesses in a climate where provenance and heritage are seen as vital for fashion brands. The luxury and high end markets in fashion, textiles and design are particularly identified as growth areas for international customers.

Sponsored by Creative Scotland, the Scottish Government’s creative industries agency, Scotland Re:Designed champions Scotland’s dazzling fashion and textile sector.

Welcome to a new dawn of design and creativity in Scotland.
