Best of Britannia
Dashing Tweeds is a company founded by photographer Guy Hills and weaver Kirsty McDougall. Entirely made in Great Britain with yarns dyed in Yorkshire, the fabric woven in Scotland, the fashion collection made in Savile Row and North London and other accessories produced in Torquay or Bristol, Dashing Tweeds has put a new look into a fabric always seen as severe and old fashioned. Menswear has got a new cut and the colours are bright. I love the trainers. Check their collection at www.dashingtweeds.co.uk
My wish for Best of Britannia is to visit its next edition given the great support given to the British companies that prefer quality to the lure of cheap manufacturing abroad and to see the exhibitors stocked everywhere, because I think is beautiful to own an item that has been made with passion.
