G69 Clothing Limited Edition in-store event

Mark Bradley is swapping G69 for EH6 this Sunday when he pops into the Limited Edition store to chat with customers about his clothing label.

The Glaswegian designer – the G69 is the East End postcode of his company – will be in the Limited Edition store this Sunday (December 7) from 3-4pm, so pop along and have a chat with him!

G69 clothing twoMark founded G69 Clothing last year after graduating with an HND in fashion design and manufacture at Cardonald College.

Before that Mark has worked as a roofer for five years, but decided he wanted to swap the scaffolding for the studio.

Mark explained: “I’ve always been interested in fashion, design and clothing. I left school at 17 and my dad offered me a job in roofing so I just went into it to earn money as it was the easy option.

“I’d been full-time in construction for five years, but eventually I’d had enough of working in the rain. My dad always knew where my interests lay so told me just to go for it.

“So I was studying fashion at Cardonald three or four times a week and when I wasn’t in, I was working on the building site.”

Mark’s label is heavily influenced by his nationality – and tartan features strongly in his latest collection.

St Andrew’s Day Style – Weekly Wishlist

So, it’s St Andrew’s Day this weekend – Sunday November 30. How are you going to celebrate the day of Scotland’s patron saint? With a dinner of haggis, neeps and tatties? Singing Scotland the Brave? What’s your St Andrew’s day style? Tartan?!

Okay, okay, it’s really predictable, and we Scots rarely wear tartan, blah blah. Actually, tartan is really nice. Or fashion’s take on tartan anyway. Which is regularly called plaid. And is nothing like real tartan really.

But well, we’re sticking with our take on St Andrew’s Day style for this week’s Weekly Wishlist. Tartan, plaid, check, whatever – you get our drift?

Now, I know where I will be this Sunday evening – on the couch, with a good old cup of tea and maybe a Tunnock’s caramel wafer or two. And how could I make that more Scottish? In a pair of fab tartan satin pyjamas from BHS (£25). That’s St Andrew’s Day style! Maybe a pair of tartan baffies too – that’s Scots for slippers, in case you didn’t know. Iris & Edie have a lovely cosy pair at Debenhams (£17.50).

St Andrew's Day StyleGAP’s plaid nightie (24.95) is cute, but won’t keep you warm. However, New Look’s gorgeous deep red tartan boyfriend coat (£39.99) will beat the chill. A great favourite, and a simple way to add a bit of St Andrew’s Day style is with a scarf. We love this bold red one from JOY (£18). Also at JOY, how fantastic is this green and red tartan print pencil skirt? (£39).

If your St Andrew’s Day style is a little more subtle, guys, maybe this grey tartan style T-shirt (£12.99) from New Look is for you? Or a simple tartan tie? (£20, Debenhams).

If full-on tartan isn’t your style, girls, then New Look’s plaid/check skirt (£14.99) will give you St Andrew’s Day Style, subtly. Finally, it’s the day before December, so you might need some gloves, like a lovely red tartan pair from BHS (£9).
