We’re getting super excited for the Dressed to Kilt fashion show tomorrow night, and look what we stumbled across in Soho! The window displays were spotted on Prince Street between Lafayette and Broadway that the store put up in support of this great event. The pop-up store where you can actually buy Dressed to Kilt apparel is on 13 East 69th Street at Madison Ave, so be sure to check that out.
Check out the gallery for a few more photos, and read on for more info on the fashion show tomorrow!

The theme of this year’s show is Mad for Scotland, celebrating eccentric style and individuality. Participating designers embrace an “anything goes” spirit, ensuring an evening of unconventional elegance, surreal ensembles, stunning fabrics and “mad hatters.”
Dressed to Kilt has established itself as the highest-profile Scottish event outside of the U.K. and the most prestigious Scottish fashion show in the world. This unique show celebrates all aspects of Caledonian culture and showcases a range of fashions, from traditional Highland kilts and cutting-edge fashions from Scotland’s finest young talent to world-renowned designer looks and haute couture.
Through Friends of Scotland, a non-profit organization founded by Sir Sean Connery and dedicated to advancing contemporary Scottish interests in the United States, proceeds from Dressed to Kilt will benefit the Paralyzed Veterans of America and its Scottish equivalent, the Erskine Hospital of Scotland, along with the Wounded Warrior Project.
For the first time in the history of Dressed to Kilt, the Friends of Scotland organization will host a pop-up retail shop to share with the public some of Scotland’s finest textiles and designs, from March 22 – April 13, with select looks featured on the runway available for sale the week following the event.
The shop is located at 13 East 69th Street at Madison Ave.
