The Limited Edition Scotland Re:Designed store in Ocean Terminal has had a great couple of months. Since opening in November, there have been a lot of interested shoppers popping in and out. Have you been in yet?

The designers numbered 21 until this month, when Strathberry of Scotland, luxury luggage and bag makers, made it 22. We featured Strathberry before Christmas on the blog – the company founded in 2011 make stunning handbags from the most beautiful of materials.

Scottish songstress Shirley Manson is a fan of the brand that have their HQ in Edinburgh, Shirley’s hometown, and we wonder how delighted she was when she got her beautiful bespoke handbag before Christmas? (Pictured below). Strathberry are in the Limited edition store now, until it closes on January 31.


Back in November, two of the designers in store, Trish Vass from Bespoke with Love and Victoria Rushworth from We Are Rushworth, held an informal event in the store, meeting customers, and chatting with them about their brands and designs.

They enjoyed it so much, they are coming back on January 10, so make sure you get in and meet the then! More information nearer the time.
