The GWCT Scottish Game Fair is on the hunt for The Best Dressed
The GWCT Scottish Game Fair has joined up with local Scottish designer, Kairen Ruse of Blues and Browns to hunt out the ‘Best Dressed’ at the Fair on 3, 4 and 5 July at Scone Palace in Perthshire. This latest competition joins the ranks of more traditional sporting activities and will appeal to the stylish ladies and gents out there.
A generous prize of a bespoke tailor made Blues and Browns tweed jacket is up for grabs for the ladies while for the gentlemen, a case of Isle of Skye Whisky is on the table from Ian MacLeod Distillers. To complement the ladies prize, Scottish ladies shooting club, Glad Rags and Cartridge Bags, will be inviting the winner and a friend to a Clay Day to show off the latest addition in their wardrobe.
Blues & Browns was established in Perth, Scotland by Kairen Alexis Ruse in 2002 with a simple philosophy ‘to create beautifully tailored clothes which harmonise and complement the female silhouette regardless of her age’. All are Tailor Made, using the finest fabrics from around the world and Scottish woven tweeds and tartans.
Kairen said; “I am delighted to be not only exhibiting for the first time at the Fair but to be sponsoring The Best Dressed Competition. The Scottish Game Fair has always been a calendar event for sporting enthusiasts and it is great to be involved in such a prestigious event on my doorstep and to be supported by two other fantastic brands. From traditional tweeds to stunning summer florals, there are endless opportunities to flaunt your style at the Scottish Game Fair.”
The hugely popular Glad Rags and Cartridge Bags was launched in 2014 and is gathering pace as one of the few ladies’ shooting clubs in Scotland. The club's aim is to encourage more ladies into what is a predominantly male-dominated sport in a friendly, fun and relaxed atmosphere. Mhairi Morriss from Jomm Events said; “Fashion and shooting have always gone hand and hand and what a brilliant competition to promote women in this sporting field.”
The Scottish Game Fair is Scotland’s biggest and best outdoor event, which focusses on all that’s great about rural Scotland. Whether you are a first time visitor or a regular at the fair, this is the ‘must visit’ event of the summer where you’ll receive a very warm welcome. The fair celebrates Scotland’s great outdoors with an array of lively shows, demonstrations, competitions and ‘have-a-go’ activities. Where else would you see a mountain bike stunt team performing alongside horn blowing French huntsmen? Falcons, gun dogs, ducks, terriers, hill ponies, pipe bands and hunting hounds will also be taking their turn in the main ring and there’s plenty to see elsewhere in the showground.
To enter The Best Dressed Competition, head to the Blues & Browns stand on Osprey Row, tag your picture on social media with #SGFlookatme or get spotted out and about over the Fair weekend by one of the team.
