Beira’s new collection is inspired by exploring the concept of ‘The Edge’. The silhouettes, textures and prints of the collection explore not just the boundaries of the garments but also of fashion industry as a major contributor to climate and social injustice. This collection brings ethical and environmental issues into focus against the beautiful backdrop of the world-famous tapestry studios.
"We are standing on the shoulders of the goddess, Beira, watching the devastation begin to unravel. Through leading by example let’s craft a sustainable path to lead us away from the edge of the planetary boundaries and back to love."
Included in your ticket price is private access to Andy Warhol: The Textiles, followed by an intimate salon-style fashion parade on Dovecot’s stunning Viewing Balcony. Access to Andy Warhol: The Textiles will be from 18:00, with entry to the fashion show at 19:00.
The hyper normalisation of fast fashion is contributing to the destruction of the earth, and impacting social equalities. Fashion needs transparency, accountability and responsibility more than ever. Enter, Beira a sustainable Scottish brand that creates beautiful, functional, limited edition, luxury womenswear using the ethical remanufacturing of discarded materials from the luxury fashion industry. Through their circular sourcing strategy, radical price transparency and focus on social justice, their vision is to become a leader in responsible luxury. Beira was co-founded by Dr Antoinette Fionda Douglas, a UN accredited expert on fashion sustainability, and Flavio Forlani, a world leading luxury fashion manufacturer with 25 years experience and is the most sought after luxury outerwear manufacturer in the world.
