Prince of Scots Kicked Off Tartan Week in Sophisticated Style with the Premiere of Iona Crawford’s Timeless Elegance Collection

Prince of Scots kicked off Tartan Week in sophisticated style with the premiere of Iona Crawford’s Timeless Elegance Collection. A star studded tartan themed New York Fashion Runway featured fashion designers and celebrities including Vivienne Westwood, Matthew Modine, Kelley MacDonald, Nick Graham, Jill Hennessey, B-52’s Fred Schneider , Iona Gruffudd, Miss Scotland Jennifer Reoch, Mathew Settle, and Wendy Williams were among attendees. From Scotland With Love was hosted at the Rock-Star Glam Liberty Theater in Times Square.
Tartan Week is a tribute to Scottish American Culture and the contributions of Scottish Americans have made in the United States. The celebrations will run through April 14th with Tartan Day Parade down Sixth Avenue. Meanwhile the streets of New York will be abuzz with Scottish Trade opportunities sponsored by the Scottish Government, Visit Scotland, and Scotland Re-Designed.

Prince of Scots has partnered with Scottish Council for Development and Industry and Cloch Solicitors to sponsor the Inaugural Scotland/USA International Creative Business Conference 12 April 2012 at the Roger Smith Hotel. The conference for Scottish Businesses will introduce opportunities to expand/explore trade in the United States.

“We are pleased to partner with Scotland’s business culture in efforts to bring the Best Scotland has to offer to North America, “ said Tim Danser, President of Scots.

Crawford’s Autumn Winter 2012 Timeless Elegance Collection was the finale collection on the Runway at the Tartan Week Event. The collection was the designer’s first creative foray with Scotland’s most internationally celebrated medium which is of course, tartan.

The collection represents an elegant, contemporary, timeless yet forward thinking on the rich heritage of Scotland. Iona collaborated with the Official Scots Italian tartan of Clan Italia which is the recognized tartan of the Italian Government. A balance of delicate printed silks dressed with tailored garments in pure new wool allows the tartan elements to accentuate the clean lines and strong silhouette of each piece. The delicate printed silks presented with the tartan represent new contemporary painterly artwork translated for the runway.

The collection draws inspiration on the dramatic turn of the Scottish seasons; from the majestic pink springtime sky at dusk to the breathy ice-white frost on a bitter winter’s morning. Kaleidoscopic heron prints in neon pink and midnight encourage the eye to wander around the body whilst a subtle dapple grey mare print adds an element of satire as the viewer suddenly identifies the soft, dainty motifs as mirrored horses. Flashes of emerald green set against a swirl of blues depict a handsome peacock; the tones of his bold feathered attire perfectly complimented by the vivid Scots Italian Tartan.

“Maintaining the refined feminine silhouette throughout the collection, colourful print placement and exploration with the striking Scots Italia Tartan create an exciting new vibrancy to my label’s trademark elegance” said Iona Crawford.

“Iona Crawford is a shining example of the beauty and elegance which is trademarks of the Best Scotland has to offer, its people and their visions of design” said David Campana, Prince of Scots Vice-President.

Two Scottish ministers are visiting the USA and Canada to promote Scottish business, tourism and culture.

Culture Secretary Fiona Hyslop and Enterprise Minister Fergus Ewing also hope to attract more foreign direct investment to Scotland.

They will hold business meetings and promotional engagements in the USA and Canada as part of Scotland Week 2012.

Ms Hyslop flew out to New York on Friday and was scheduled to travel to San Francisco, Vancouver and Chicago for a series of cultural engagements and business meetings around the creative industries and tourism.

Mr Ewing is also on a week-long visit to Houston, Calgary and New York to meet business leaders in growth sectors such as renewable energy, oil and gas, financial services and tourism.

He will finish the week in New York, taking part in the Tartan Day Parade through the streets of Manhattan on Saturday.

The ministers have been working with Scottish Development International and VisitScotland on their trips.

Biggest export market
The USA is Scotland’s largest single international export market, worth an estimated £3.5bn a year.

It is also the biggest single market by value for whisky exports of £655m.

Meanwhile, 15 Glasgow companies are setting off on a trade visit to the USA.

Firms from sectors including food and drink, transport, manufacturing, law and education will be visiting Chicago and New York.

The five-day trip has been organised by the Scottish Council for Development and Industry (SCDI) and Glasgow City Council.

The trade visit will be led by Glasgow’s Lord Provost, Bob Winter.

The trip follows on from a trade visit last year to Toronto and New York, which saw Glasgow firms win business worth £1m.

Mr Winter said: “Glasgow has always enjoyed strong trading links between Chicago and New York and this visit will ensure companies in the city are supported to achieve their ambitions in two of the world’s most dynamic cities.”

Companies here recognise that in a challenging domestic market, they need to look at overseas opportunities ”

SCDI
SCDI international director Jane Gotts said it was important to encourage more companies in Scotland to broaden their horizons and trade internationally.

She added: “The US economy is picking up and doing well.

“Companies here recognise that in a challenging domestic market, they need to look at overseas opportunities and that’s one of the benefits of actually taking them out on a visit like this.”

Philip Hannay, managing director of Glasgow-based Cloch Solicitors, said he was going on the trip in order to “form a dialogue with the Americans”.

He said: “I have already worked on Wall Street over a decade ago so I’m returning to New York to re-establish links for the benefit of the clients that I have here in Scotland.

“Some clients which are product-based are certainly looking to export right now and I am looking to support that.”
