We are pleased to announce that McColl&Clan, who is one of our fellows, have designed ‘The First Lady at the Palace’ by Lusmila McColl.
With Her Majesty’s’s consent the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee tartan was created to celebrate the 60th anniversary of Queen Elizabeth’s accession to the throne of the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland, sovereign of seventeen dependencies and the title ‘Head of the Commonwealth’ which comprises fifty-four countries. The design uses some of her favourite colours blended into a royal purple background with white to represent the shape of a diamond.
It has been woven in four fabrics; wool, silk, cotton and cashmere, and will be available in a wide range of products in time for the official launch of celebrations in June this year which begin with an exhibition in the Scottish Parliament.
The first of woven cloth was sent to Buckingham Palace and the first manufactured items to The Prime Minister, David Cameron, the Speaker of the House of Commons, John Bercow, the Mayor of London Boris Johnson, and the First Minister of Scotland, Alex Salmond their responses are attached.
Each of the fabrics and manufactured goods has been ethically produced in accordance with best practice, and a portion of the proceeds of sale will be given to the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee Trust.
At the invitation of Dr. Geoffrey Scott Carrol, a small collection of outfits has been specially assembled for this, the 10th anniversary of Scottish week in New York.
