Up and coming women’s fashion designer, Iona Crawford, will be partnering with Prince of Scots to introduce bespoke collections to the North American market. Collections are feminine and timeless captivating ones fashion senses with textile prints and textures, silk, cashmere, and artistry are all very Iona and very Scotland. Stunning short dresses, evening gowns, tailored pieces, statement coats, scarves, and hand bags complete the collection.
Iona first brought her inspiring lifestyle to New York’s Fashion Runway via the Dressed to Kilt event. Recognized as a premier Scottish Designer by Vogue, Crawford’s silk Farquhar Dress from her Alisa Collection was a crowd favorite at the April show. Iona is also nominated for Young Designer of the Year in the 2011 Scottish Fashion Awards. Drawing inspiration from beauty of Scotland, Crawford’s collections will make you want to fall in love again.
“Iona is a true artist in creating timeless contemporary style. She remains true to her humble roots. Choosing the good life of rural Stirling, Scotland over the glitter of London is a testament to her passion” said Sandi Casal, PR and Fashion Director.
The 6th Annual Scottish Fashion Awards will take place on June 15th at the futuristic Glasgow Science Centre. Tessa Hartman, Founder and Event Producer, have put together a world class event to showcase Scotland’s greatest resources, their people. Scottish designers have been the fashion rage with likes of Jonathan Saunders, Holly Hunt, Christopher Kane, and more importantly Alexander McQueen who got the nod from the future Queen of England, Duchess Katherine of Cambridge. Good luck to the judges as selecting the winner in 2011 will not be easy with the cast of talent Scotland has to offer.
Designed in association with Skopes, globally renowned producers of menswear, the Iona Crawford Ailsa Autumn/Winter 2011/2012 collection is milestone in the history of each company. Skopes will also introduce their first venture in womenswear designed exclusively by Iona Crawford.
