Something New With Leith's Scottish Design Exchange




Leith is becoming a strong base for local creatives within the fashion industry. With the opening of the Biscuit Factory, allowing offices for stylists, up and coming magazines and photographers; it seems only right that down the road, The Scottish Design Exchange has opened in Ocean Terminal.

The Scottish Design Exchange is a perfect platform for designers to share their stock. There is a fine collection of fashion, home interiors, art and accessories. 
Owner, Lynzi, has allowed designers to showcase their pieces in the flesh(or fabric). So far Birds Of Prayers, Lizzi O, Mischke Lingerie, Christine Watson and award winning Nicci N have added some of their lines to the store. 


C Watson range

What is special about this, is that even though, on the rails, there are one of each product, there is the option to get the style tailor made for you personally. 
Like, wow! You have a one off, limited edition piece of clothing made for your body and your body only (unless you have a clone, which would be a bit odd). 

Lizzi O

Lindsey also informed me of their exciting near future plans. C Watson plans on adding more of her striking pieces from her latest range (can't wait!) AND there is talk of a hair and make up styling service. I was legit jumping up and down squeeling at the sound of it too. 

Miscke Lingerie


Nicci N range

Harris Tweed products, handmade leather accessories by Z Leather and a collection of art by Wendy H and Judy Wright are available to purchase at the store too. 

With the range of "fast fashion" that is hitting the high street, now more than ever, more people are wanting something different. Now, you can have a close up and personal look at fantastic pieces of fashion. Each designer has a defining  appearance to their lines and Scottish Designer Exchange allows you to have something defining and special in your home. 
You need to get down to check it out for yourself. It really is such a treat to have it in Edinburgh. 

Until Next Time...
