A DUNFERMLINE mother and daughter team are proving they are a cut above the rest by taking their first ever couture collection of clothing from catwalk to high street. 

Fashionable duo Chloe and Susan White, of ‘Rosamund of Scotland’, have based their beautiful designs on Chloe’s time working for the Royal Mail.

They include objects that are perfectly stitched, such as letters, doors and post boxes found in Dunfermline. 

Chloe explained: “I’ve always wanted to design clothes since I was a little girl. 

"I went to study fashion at De Montfort University in Leicester but I’ve had my children since. I started to go back to work professionally and that’s when me and mum decided to bring our expertise together.

“My mum is the textile designer and she is an amazing artist. It’s great that we are finally working together.”

As well as bespoke fitting services, ‘Rosamund of Scotland’ can now be bought from the The Scottish Design Exchange in Edinburgh. Prices start from £90 and go up to £250. 

Accessories are also in the line and include a fun clutch bag that opens up like an envelope. 

Chloe continued: “Each garment is different and we’ve taken our inspiration from the things we see around us everyday. 

"As Dunfermline residents we’ve based our designs on photos we have taken all around the town following the Royal Mail theme. 

“These are hand embroidered pieces of clothing that you’re not going to be able to find anywhere else. 

"It took over a week to complete a pleated skirt so it gives you an idea into the amount of time and skill that goes into it. 

“Moving forward we might do an Andrew Carnegie themed collection! 

"We’ve got lots of ideas but we’re not following any trends. 

“The best part is that we’re able to do this all in Scotland and no longer is it mandatory to go to London to make it. 

"We’ve had interest from top fashion bloggers and we even got to show off our designs on a Glasgow catwalk.”
