Future Design Talent






Old Gala House

Upcycled fashion inspired by the late Dame Vivienne Westwood and designs inspired by nature are part of a new exhibition in Galashiels by Heriot-Watt School of Textiles and Design.

The show, called ‘Future Design Talent,’ runs from 9 - 30 September 2023 at the Old Gala House near the centre of Galashiels, and will feature examples of work from all six of the school’s undergraduate programmes.

The Vivienne Westwood project was run in collaboration with the local British Red Cross charity shop in Galashiels, which donated clothing to the School that it was unable to sell.

Heriot-Watt School of Textiles and Design is staging the exhibition after the Old Gala House asked the School to showcase some of its student work. The Old Gala House is a historic building dating back to 1583 that is now a museum and gallery operated by local charitable trust, Live Borders.

Sustainability is a fundamental theme throughout the exhibition.
