Historic Environment Scotland HES) and American fashion designer Jeff Garner have joined forces to create Women of the Crown - a fashion show that will launch at Edinburgh Castle on 7 February before going to London Fashion Week.

Women of the Crown, at the Great Hall of Edinburgh Castle, will be a catwalk show, showcasing the exclusive collection for the first time before it travels to London Fashion Week. In conjunction with Jeff Garner's fashion label Prophetik, HES will also launch a new range of products inspired by Mary Queen of Scots.

Jeff Garner’s relationship with Historic Environment Scotland started with a chance meeting at Dressed to Kilt in Houston, TX, where he was inspired to weave the rich history of Scotland into his new collection. HES provided Garner with historical information and resources, alongside the inspiration of their stunning properties, many of which Mary Queen of Scots visited (read about places connected with Mary here).

Showcasing Scotland

Natasha Troitino, Head of Retail for HES, said: 'We are delighted to have this unique opportunity to work with an haute couture international designer to produce a capsule range of products inspired by Mary Queen of Scots.

'The creation of Jeff Garner’s 2019 collection, based on our historic sites and the story of Mary Queen of Scots, has provided a platform to showcase the rich abundance of creative industries Scotland has to offer, something which HES is passionate about. Along with the release of the film, Mary Queen of Scots, Scotland continues to be celebrated internationally and secure its place within modern culture.'
