Location: Kelvin Arms
Get ready to don your plaids lads and lasses because the Dressed to Kilt fashion show will be making it’s debut in Houston this coming Saturday April 7th at the brand new Million Air hangar! I am 50% Scottish, so when I was asked to cover this show I was like Yessss!!
I headed over to the Scottish pub Kelvin Arms to get in the spirit and take a few pics.
From its genesis in 2003, DTK is now the largest and most prestigious Scottish fashion event in the world, and one of the highest profile fashion shows in the United States. This most prestigious Scottish fashion show in the world, Dressed to Kilt , will honor Houston’s Man of the Year, Mr. Jim “Mattress Mack” McIngvale during a celebrity filled show celebrating country cool looks “From the Scottish Highlands to Houston.” The show is this Saturday, April 7, 2018 and will serve as the official opening of the new Million Air Houston facility at Hobby Airport, and the largest private jet hangar in TEXAS .
Traditionally hosted in New York City, the Friends of Scotland charity, co-founded by Sir Sean Connery in 2002, chose to come to Houston in 2018 to help raise funds for the Houston based charity, THE LONE SURVIVOR FOUNDATION.
Marcus Luttrell will be walking the catwalk this year as will the President of the Navy SEAL Foundation, Ms. Robin King. They will also be raising funds for the Navy SEAL Foundation and a number of former SEALS will be walking the runway. They join over 40 models, from celebrities, athletes to local heroes and personalities.
The theme of this year’s show is:” From the Scottish Highlands to Houston, Texas – Country Cool”, Country Lifestyle Clothing and the Fashion of Outdoor Sports. The runway will include the latest Tartan & Tweed designs and everything from plus- fours to kilts to camouflage.
So get out your plaids and we will see you there!!
