PRLog - Nov. 8, 2012 - A NEW fashion company founded by three Scottish sisters is celebrating following a sponsorship deal with the world-renowned Harris Tweed Hebrides.

K’outure Ltd, formed less than a year ago in the Highland village of Advie, is the brainchild of Harriet, Matilda and Jemima Kirkwood, all graduates of the Edinburgh College of Art’s Performance Costume Department.

The three sisters, all graduates from the Edinburgh College of Art’s Performance Costume department came together to form their own company to showcase their unique clothing creations, a decision that has enabled them to have complete creative control over the work they do, designing garments that are to be loved, worn and enjoyed on a daily basis.

That approach is paying dividends, with the Harris Tweed Hebrides deal sitting alongside sponsorship from other distinguished brands including Johnston’s of Elgin and Knockando Woolmill.

K’outure is now specialising in blending contemporary design with traditional fabrics, creating unique, exciting and highly functional garments that has result in their first collection entitled, ‘K’osy for K’outure’.

Harriet, 27, said: “We are delighted to have received the sponsorship deal with Harris Tweed Hebrides as well as Johnston’s of Elgin and Knockando Woolmill. For a young company to receive the support of such iconic Scottish manufacturers so early on in its development is hugely exciting and we hope it is testament to the garments that K’outure are producing.”

Matilda, 26, continued: “We constantly aim to produce new, exciting and highly-functional garments, blending traditional fabrics, wools and tweeds with contemporary design. Throughout the designing and making process, our garments are carefully considered and beautifully made. Our aim is that through quality and the offer of something unique at the forefront of Scottish bespoke design, we will make K’outure an exciting and innovative brand’

Jemima, 24, added: “We are all incredibly passionate and driven about what we do. Having been trained in performance costume we take the odd, weird and sometimes downright baffling from our costume design work and prune it back to reveal the everyday and wearable – with some theatrical flair. We feel that our costume background equips us with the scope and vision to see further than the ever changing trends of fashion – a challenge we relish every day.”
