Scotland Re:Design (SR:D) is the national organisation for fashion, accessories and interior designers, providing Showrooms & Exhibitions, Annual Awards and Runway Show Calendar plus Stores, Events & Business Support Opportunities.
Originally known as Glasgow Design Collective, Glasgow’s first and original Design Collective in association with The Herald and Glasgow School of Art, GDC raised sponsorship via a creative entrepreneurial approach from brands & organisations including Whyte & MacKay and Glasgow City Council to support creative individuals to attend trade shows by delivering shops, events and shows, new product collaborations, PR and knowledge transfer mentoring.
In 2012, this developed into Scotland Re:Designed (now Scotland Re:Design) and the core of the GDC ethos to aid export and show attendance was maintained via the launch of SR:D Awards.
SR:D is focussed on supporting the development of a successful design community in Scotland, with an emphasis on fashion, textiles and interiors.
SR:D works to advise and protect the rapidly growing fashion & interior market within the creative industries sector, addressing gaps & researching opportunities across all sectors. Scotland's textiles industry alone exports to over 150 countries and is the creative industries’ fastest growing sector.
At SR:D Glasgow in November 2017, we had 102 different companies and exhibitors involved showcasing their business to our audience. Ranging from fashion and textile designers, interiors and accessories to food, drink and the hotel sector.
SR:D is constituted as a Community Interest Company (CIC).
