The event was held in Le Monde upstairs in Dirty Martini, proving to be a outstanding location for a fashion show. The show was presented by the host Eshiva Wright, and started with 3 outstanding designers; Rachel McMillian, Nicci.N and Carolyn Edmondson. Through the show the three judges from industry analysed and put notes together in order to decide on the winners. The three judges consist of Lynne McCrossan ( fashion columnist for Edinburgh Evening news, and stylist), Colin Gilchrist ( fashion designers, the digital marking lead of The Social Tailor), and Ruth Walker ( the columnist and editor of Scotland on Sunday).
