From Harris to Paris
A Unique Voyage. An exhibition of photographs, video and stories at the Waldorf Astoria, Edinburgh.
Following the journey of the tweed from Harris to Paris, we explore Scotland's national and international character. This is a story about people, craftsmanship and how an traditional Scottish island industry remains relevant and connects to a global fashion industry that changes, literally with every season.
Opened on June 21st and ran until August 31st 2016
I traveled to the the Isle of Harris with Martin and the team to film at a variety of the Mills on the Island, as well as visit the weavers at their homes. The whole experience was amazing and I am really proud of the results we produced.
The launch of the film and gallery of photography was attended by Prince Charles and Camilla during the Edinburgh International Fashion Festival.
