The Gathering FIVE




All of our Dundee shenanigans were leading up to Scot Street Style's The Gathering 5. This event saw the coming together of creatives from across Scotland (and beyond) to network, collaborate and just have a darn good time. With a tasty little trip to True Pizza Co. before the main event, we got the chance to chat with some lovely folk, transform into our evening attire (which mainly involved a change of shoes) and fuel up for the night ahead.

What we wore, from day to night.....

The Gathering itself happened in one of our favourite Dundee spots, the DCA, where our stylish bunch took over the gallery and first floor area. We had the opportunity to look around the exhibition of work by Heather Phillipson. It's safe to say we were all blown away, if slightly bemused, by the giant cut out animals and plant life. It did make for some excellent photo opportunities though. The exhibition is on until 9th November and is well worth checking out if, like us, you love surreal and colourful art.





Through out the evening we also had the opportunity to browse the treasure trove that is the DCA shop as well as getting a sneak peak at some new work from Dundee based jewellery Jane Gowans. We really enjoyed chatting to the lady herself and getting the chance to try on some of her beautiful pieces.

What we enjoyed most about the evening (and our whole day in Dundee) was getting the chance to meet and chat to so many amazing people. We finally met the beautiful Betty & Bee, who we have been following online for so long. Kimberley managed to overcome her moustache fear while we had our photo taken by the fabulous C.J Monk. We caught up with jeweller and Charcot designer Kirsty Stevens (and put in our request for some special jewels). We also spoke to Gordon and Louise, who are the whole reason Scot Street Style exists. They have created such a warm and welcoming community and we are so happy to be part of it. Just look at all these beauties!
