Tartaned Up in Halifax

Atlantic Fashion Week is well under way in Halifax, and tonight’s highlights include Katrina Tuttle, fresh off her LG Fashion Week debut, and Veronica MacIsaac (above). Veronica’s specialty is rooted squarely in, well, her Scottish roots. She grew up as a highland dancer and with a nod to her kilt-making mother, was sewing by the age of four. Her parents run the critically acclaimed MacIsaac Kiltmakers in St. Peter’s, Cape Breton Island.

Veronica’s Celtic designs are thoroughly compelling thanks to a keen eye for contemporary trends (check out the one-shoulder tartan dress) and ability to balance the youthful with the elegant. All pieces are custom made-to-order and available in wool, silk, or poly/viscose blend fabric. You can also choose any tartan. And thankfully – we’re pretty sure you don’t need Scottish roots to rock these babies.

Veronica shows tonight during Atlantic Fashion Week at Olympic Center, Halifax.
