 ABOUT US

Meet Siobhan

 

 

Siobhan Mackenzie is a Multi Award-Winning Scottish Fashion Designer.

 

Born and raised in The Black Isle in the Highlands of Scotland, her Highland heritage and Clan Mackenzie roots inspired her Graduate Collection and have remained a firm inspiration transcending throughout the brand.

 

Five days after graduating with a First Class BA Honours Degree in Fashion Design & Production Siobhan launched her self-named label in 2014, aged twenty-one. Whilst a student Siobhan undertook an internship with Scottish Kilt-Makers Glenisla, where she learnt the art and skill of bespoke kilt making.

 

At only ten years old the designer set her ambition and had bought her first sewing machine by aged thirteen where her Home Economics teacher taught her how to sew.

 

Her innovative design flair mixed with an exclusive Made in Scotland brand ethos reinvents the kilt, tailoring & knitwear into a contemporary Scottish Fashion Label. The designer is passionate about supporting traditional craftsmanship whilst injecting modern design.

 

Sustainability has a large part to play within the brand’s ethos- promoting a slow fashion concept in contrast to the fast-fashion industry. Mackenzie grew up with her father working as an Environment Officer which has influenced her choices within the brand and it’s environmental foot-print.

 

Brand collaborations include Barbour, Caorunn Gin and most recently Team Scotland for The Commonwealth Games 2018.
