Women of the Crown: The Haute Couture Fashion Show Comes to Edinburgh
Jeff Garner’s 19’ collection “Women of the Crown” will launch at Edinburgh Castle on February 7th, 2019 presented by HES, Historic Environment Scotland and Edinburgh Castle. What began 15 years ago in Tennessee, Prophetik has evolved from major catwalks to the red carpet.
Prophetik’s mission is to enlighten consumers of the harmful effects of synthetic fabrics and petro-chemical dyes in everyday garments and to provide a beautiful solution and a purposed vision of awareness designing with plant based textiles and dyes. This season Mr. Garner focused on the beautiful craft lace from MYB Textiles since 1900 in Ayrshire, Kirkcaldy Linens since 1825 in Kircaldy, Knockando Woollen Mill in Spey Valley since 1790, and Lochcarron of Scotland since 1892 World’s leading manufacture of Scottish Tartan.
“Women of the Crown” defines a past when young kings had regents and strong Queens ruled countries and inspired arts. The Renaissance movement was partially created when the focus went to Art not War. Catherine de Medici, Queen of France, defined court attire and tradition guiding the beautiful gowns of Renaissance and Elizabean Courts across Europe. Mary Queen of Scots was apart of this influence and brought the beauty of fabrics to lighten the darken castles in Scotland. This collection influenced by Mary Queen of Scots along with her counterparts Elizabeth I of England, Mary of Guise & Anne of Denmark.
