The Scottish Design Exchange presents Mindframe, a fashion show and art exhibition in aid of Penumbra, one of Scotland’s leading mental health charities.

 The event will include a showcase of innovative fashion from Scottish designers, a drinks reception and an exhibition of original art on canvas, that a selection of artists will respond to the theme using their own style, which will be available for sale in the weeks leading up to the event. The selection will also include a large blank canvas for the attendees to respond to the theme on with art materials provided.

Representatives of the charity, and the staff of the Scottish Design Exchange, will also be on hand throughout the night. The artists and designers involved are all independent and Scotland-based, and are chosen from a range of creatives based at both Coburg House art studios and the Scottish Design Exchange.

The ticket sales and any sales of the canvases to go to Penumbra. We chose mental health as a theme because we have all been personally affected by it, and we believe there are huge problems of isolation, self-doubt and depression particularly in the creative community, and aim to combat that with uplifting events like this one.

Fashion designers involved include Textiles by April, Seinclln, Studio Five, Birds of Prayers, Kelly Dawn Riot and Victoria Leisa Bowles and Rosamund of Scotland. Art collaborators will include Mark Vice, Sean Casey, Erik Petrie, Elspeth McKenzie, Michael Doherty, and Alexander Jackson.

Refreshments will be provided throughout the night!
