• By these shores

    In a unique creative collaboration, Sandra created an extraordinary capsule wardrobe for Award-winning Scottish Gaelic singer Julie Fowlis, for her red carpet appearances. Julie, who is the vocalist in Disney Pixar’s recent animation Brave, attended the Hollywood, European and Inverness premieres and the resulting images seen by an audience of millions.

    In a photoshoot encapsulating the dramatic beauty of the Highlands, Julie Fowlis was photographed by Royal photographer John Swannell at the privately owned Aldourie Castle, on the shores of Loch Ness. Luke Walton, Artistic Director of Rainbow Room International Glasgow, created her hair and make-up looks, while Sandra styled each outfit. CNAG were sponsors of the shoot.

    Sandra extended the collaboration and made a USA St Andrews tartan frockcoat for Julie to wear at the closing ceremony performance of the Ryder Cup, Chicago 2012. Sandra subsequently held masterclasses in her studio, for Gaelic medium education, where both Julie and Sandra discussed the collaboration with pupils from the Highlands and Islands.
