Scarves by Helen Ruth and Danielle Rattray

Who doesn’t love a scarf? We’re not talking Doctor Who style long, knitted ones, but big, silky, luxurious, throw-them-round-your-neck versions, that are, let’s face it, the perfect accessory.

They just add something to an outfit; they’re beautiful, functional, comforting, cosy, timeless. Oh, and the perfect gift!

Scarves are the speciality of two of the Scottish designers at the Ocean Terminal Limited Edition store – north east based Danielle Rattray and Helen Ruth.

Danielle, 32, launched her eponymous brand just this year, after a successful eight-year-career as a graphic designer. Starting her own fashion business was a dream that had turned into an obsession, and so the Stonehaven based designer made it a reality.
