Chanel's secret Scottish fashion show location revealed.
The birthplace of Mary Queen of Scots and King James V will play host to fashion's finest next month as fashion editors, buyers and muses roll into Linlithgow Palace for Chanel's annual Métiers d'Arts show on December 4.
The castle, situated in West Lothian, does not have a roof and so guests will be protected from the elements by a huge glass cube, according to the Daily Record .
Previously held in Paris, Tokyo, London, New York and Shanghai, the catwalk event will showcase the luxury house's pre-fall 2013 collection, and the work of the artisan manufacturers housed under its Paraffection umbrella, including glove maker Causse, feather house Lemarié and hat maker Maison Michel.
The luxury house, which is helmed by German designer Karl Lagerfeld, also recently saved 176 jobs in Scotland by purchasing cashmere business Barrie Knitwear. Based in Hawick, Barrie was formerly part of a once-mighty, 140 year old textiles conglomerate named Dawson's that went into administration earlier this year before Chanel stepped in to secure its future.
