SATURDAY 31ST MARCH, 2018, GLASGOW, SCOTLAND
The SCOTTISH STYLE AWARDS in celebration with MÖET & CHANDON has announced details of this year’s event, billed as the most stylish night of the year, which takes place at magnificent Kelvingrove Art Gallery and Museum in Glasgow on Saturday the 31st of March, 2018.
Actress POLLYANNA McINTOSH will host the star-studded gala, which honours iconic individuals and inspirational enterprises whose creativity enriches our lives, and is now in its 13th glorious year.
Arriving to a soundtrack of popping corks at a Moët & Chandon reception, guests will be invited to top their Champagne with Chambord, black raspberry liqueur, before enjoying a gala dinner complemented with a Hennessy cocktail. The awards will commence thereafter.
Ten prestigious presentations will be made in the course of this year’s show with accolades spanning the nation’s Most Stylish Male and Female, along with Tastemaker of the Year, whilst the spotlight will shine on the Most Stylish Bar, Restaurant, Hotel, Entertainment Venue and Retailer.
In a Scottish Style Awards exclusive, a runway presentation, “Deich bliadhna aig Muileann Shiaboist”, celebrating the first decade of HARRIS TWEED HEBRIDES will pay tribute to the iconic fabric whose quality and provenance is loved by the world’s biggest and best designers, fashion houses and luxury brands. Such is the uniqueness and importance of the cloth’s artisan manufacturing process that it is governed by its own 1993 Harris Tweed Act of Parliament, and the runway presentation will highlight these credentials to stunning effect.
Augmenting the runway further will be a Spring 2018 show from CRUISE, starring fashion’s biggest names including Gucci, Dolce & Gabbana, Tom Ford, Givenchy, Valentino, Fendi, Lanvin, Vivienne Westwood, Victoria Beckham, Celine, Versus Versace, Balmain and DSquared2.
KEN McCULLOCH, the visionary hotelier who, across the last five decades, has been the force behind many impressive statements including One Devonshire Gardens in Glasgow, the Malmaison chain, the Columbus Monte Carlo and now the breathtakingly bold Dakota concept, will be honoured for his Very Special Achievement.
Mr McCulloch’s award is one of three headline presentations honouring individuals whose contribution to style and creativity is recognised on a major level internationally. The recipients of the finale Style Icon and Outstanding Contribution will be revealed soon along with details of this year’s illustrious Judging Panel.
Winners across the award categories will each receive a striking Model-Citizen art collectable plus a Magnum of Moët.
The celebrations will continue at the hot ticket BELVEDERE VODKA OFFICIAL AFTER PARTY at The Sanctuary, Glasgow, located only a few stylish steps from Kelvingrove Art Gallery and Museum.
