New to 2012 Festivals was the Edinburgh International Fashion Festival and with Edinburgh only being 409 miles away from London (now considered to be a Fashion Capital of the world) it has been a long time coming.
The Festival took place in Summerhall - the old Royal Dick Veterinary School and featured incredible Scottish designers, exhibitions, talks and workshops. It’s aim: “to feature fashion as an art form”.
As part of the Edinburgh International Fashion Festival I attended the Bebaroque AW2012 Runway Show set in the beautifully converted Dissection Room.
Bebaroque was founded in 2007 by the amazing Designers Chloe Patience and Mhairi McNicol who came together to bring us the exquisitely embellished leg-wear and body-wear that Fashion Idols such as Jessie J and Nicki Minaj have worn. They are now regularly featured in the ultimate style publications: Vogue, Grazia and Elle and have had collections bought by Harrods and Liberty's.
Their AW2012 collection is completely gorgeous and had the models rocking the intricately jewelled bodies, cleverly printed dresses and gloriously printed hosiery to the finely chosen beats of DJ Hobbes.
All the items are hand embroidered and printed in Scotland and prices start at the very reasonable £39.95.
