Nightwalk AW12 @ Arches

Preview by Laura Forsyth | 30 Oct 2012

Showcasing some of the biggest stars in independent Scottish fashion, the Nightwalk Fashion Show has descended upon Glasgow for the AW12 collections and will take place on 6 November (a rescheduled date). Now in its second year, the Arches will play host to the event, with good tunes, incredible clothes and stunning models for the occasion. It’s like a dream come true.

Propelling fresh designs in for the new season, the event will feature sparkling new labels as well as some of the country’s more established underground brands. You can expect to see plenty of stand out designs from newbies like BrianChan, Betsabelle Latex, Mochmess, Natalie Traynor, Nothing, Aphrodite, POP/U/LAR, Laura Spring and Staysick.

In keeping with the name of the event, expect to see plenty of galaxy- and space-inspired prints from Carousel Vintage. Their’s SS12 collection proved to be a massive hit, with pretty tie-dye effects and grungy embellishments being an instant success for the first line. Designer Nola Garven’s collection can be easily found at Glasgow’s Gin in Teacups events or on the Carousel Vintage ASOS page for those looking for a more mystical and moody fashion fix this season.

Dawntroversial has amassed a following for her quirky designs with some of her styles even being worn by X-Factor contestants. Previous seasons have included My Little Pony influences and vibrant glittery designs so expect to see more extravagant styles from this Nightwalk regular.

Also taking the stage will be Betty Spoke, Fair Feathered Friend, NLM Design, Afraid, Jennie Lööf, Animinimal and Crikey so guests can expect an eclectic array of fashion throughout the night. Hair design will be from Sassoon Salon stylists to inspire new looks for the AW12 season and there will be DJ performances throughout the show.
