Fashion is parked up

MODELS Sophie Robertson, left, and Jessica Bird strut their stuff as three of Scotland's most adventurous designers showcase their wares against a somewhat urban background at the Edinburgh International Fashion Festival.

Obscure Couture, Jacob Birge and Saunt & Sinner were commissioned by fashion website Crave to create couture collections for grand finale of the festival last night, with the one-off show held in the car park of the Ocean Terminal shopping centre.

The event was designed to showcase luxury fashion and included creations from Glasgow-based label Obscure Couture, which was set up by Lyndsay Pagan and Jenn Celine Coyle and specialises in unique "street/stagewear". Ms Robertson wore a multi-coloured skirt and fitted bodice designed by the pair.

The fashion show also included collections from Birge, known for his unconventional use of hi-tech fabrics, and womenswear designers Toni Roddie and Emma Noble, of Saunt & Sinner, who both studied at Gray's School of Art and are known for using Scottish textiles. Their red dress was modelled by Ms Bird for the show.
