Independent Scottish salmon farmer Loch Duart was one of the main sponsors at a high-end fashion event in New York, showcasing designers from Scotland.
The Dressed to Kilt charity fashion show took place in New York on 23 June at Mill Neck Manor on Long Island. The event is a major platform for leading fashion designers whose work incorporated a tartan style, inspired by the event’s theme of “Dress for Adventure: From the Highlands to the Hamptons.”
Guests were treated to Loch Duart Hors d’oeuvres and an exclusive fashion show, including a surprise runway appearance from Loch Duart Salmon itself, in the form of a model sporting a Glen Orchy Tweed jacket and waistcoat with Oban Mist tartan supplied by Macgregor and Macduff. All funds raised were donated to the Navy SEAL Foundation.
Chris Orr, Loch Duart Sales Director said: “Like high-end fashion houses, Loch Duart is a luxury brand and is served by the most prestigious restaurants in the world. Like many of the fine Scottish textiles and garments on display, Loch Duart salmon is reared with the same spirit of craft and attention to detail to create the world’s best tasting farmed salmon…. the USA is a key market for us, and Loch Duart is much loved by American foodies, chefs, and restaurateurs. We see lots more potential to grow the brand in the coming years ahead.”
