The 73-year-old British designer has consistently used Scottish textiles and fabrics within her collections.
In its ninth edition, the Scottish Fashion Awards (SFA) – which honours the most notable Scottish contributors to the industry – also turned the spotlight on British designer Vivienne Westwood.
“Vivienne has had an undeterred loyalty and unparalleled love and passion for Scottish textiles and fabrics, which she has consistently used within her collections throughout the years,” says SFA founder Dr Tessa Hartmann. “She personifies the powerful and subversive originality of British fashion and has done more for Scottish textiles than probably any other designer of her generation. Her brand name is synonymous with the tartan pattern and her fascination for this iconic fabric is unrelenting.”
Previous SFA Hall of Fame honorees include model Stella Tennant, photographer Rankin and journalist Colin McDowell.
The Scottish Designer of the Year is Christopher Kane, while 16-year-old Jean Campbell was named Scottish Model of the Year. – AFP Relaxnews
