On Monday night I went along to award winning hair salon, Linton & Mac‘s The Low Down event. The event took on the theme of fashion from the 60’s with a modern twist by their art team. It also had a very inspiring showcase of Aberdeen’s local businesses, with a special focus on the up-and-coming Netherkirkgate area.
Linton & Mac’s art team then presented “Trends: 1966-2016” which included a showcase of sixties inspired hair, make-up and style with clothes from The Closet – Vintage in Aberdeen. How amazing is that coat?!
At the other side of the room there was festive cocktail demonstrations going on by Adrian from 10 Dollar Shake! 10 Dollar Shake have a few amazing bars/restaurants throughout Aberdeen including; The Tippling House, Rye & Soda and Bos’n! Make sure to check them out (especially Rye & Soda, they do amazing pancakes).
Josie Steed, head of fashion and textiles at Grays School of Art then showcased ‘Design Through the Decades’ which included a video of Gray’s most recent Graduate Fashion Show!
Other local businesses that were there showcasing what they have to offer were Filthy Gorgeous, offering tasters and sliders from their restaurant next door. Mad Penguin, bringing freshly made prosecco and strawberry gelato for all of us to try. Lastly, Paper Skeleton which is a company that specialises in luxury custom designs for weddings!
Thanks so much to Julia for inviting me along to this creative and inspiring event. Hopefully there will be many more events like this promoting such amazing local businesses here in Aberdeen.
