london fashion week and ganseys

The centrepiece of Meadham and Kirchoff’s collection at London Fashion Week was 40 pieces of gansey inspired knitwear created by a group of mainly Moray knitters under the guidance of Di Gilpin. Here is one picture, but is worth checking out more:

The new Scotsman reported today- “At one point, Ms Gilpin called in the services of Miriam Tegels, a Dutchwoman who is the fastest knitter in the world.

“We got on the train at Waverley Station and we knitted all the way down to London,” said Ms Gilpin, who with another Scots knitter enjoyed a few glasses of champagne ahead of yesterday’s runway show and declared the finished event: “absolutely fabulous”. Ms Gilpin, who runs her own knitwear design company, said: “The designers have taken a huge risk in using traditional gansey knit stitchwork on the catwalk, believing in the importance to fashion in making things that are enduring, creative and inspirational.”

On a personal note, I’ve spent the past 6 weeks travelling and exhibiting at regional stitch and craft shows which has been great fun but exhausting. I am really looking forward to my first show at Unravel in Farnham Maltings this weekend!
