TUCKED behind an unassuming door on Constitution Street is a unique company that is single-handedly selling Scotland as the most stylish location in the land.
Last week the office at Location Scotland was full to bursting as the country’s brightest creatives descended en masse to see an intimate exhibition of their work as part of Edinburgh International Fashion Festival.
The Leith-based business has a client list that reads like a Rolodex of global fashion. From Chanel and Vanity Fair to corporations such as RBS and Vodafone, Location Scotland is responsible for sourcing some of the most spectacular backdrops used in photoshoots and ad campaigns.
With prints in prime position dotted over whitewashed walls there was a real sense that something special is happening in Scotland: a shift in attitude about the great riches we have to offer and shouting about our ability to get a gorgeous job done.
The team there was fresh from providing assistance to high street giant New Look as they shot their latest fashion campaign in apparently unlikely spots such as Leith and Motherwell.
An utter breath of fresh air, the team were inclusive and welcoming as their own private space was being invaded. The perfect hosts.
It’s easy to see why so many companies feel the exact same way about them.
