Mary Wood is an award-winning designer whose unique tartan pieces are an expression of the woman herself, who lives life to the full with a touch of class and plenty of sass.
Born and raised in the Scottish Highlands, she comes from a family whose heritage is rooted in the textile industry and began her fashion career by working for the family business.
Being a proud Scot with a love for tartan it wasn’t long before Mary developed a passion for creating her own designs incorporating Scotland’s beautiful cloth. By taking courses at the London College of Fashion and at the Alison Victoria School of Sewing she perfected her skills and expertise, and thereafter launched Loch Dress. Over the last 5 years she has created an array of fabulous bespoke pieces for women all over the world and is a well-known and distinctive brand with a reputation for high quality. It is her original and modern, yet traditional and timeless pieces that set her apart.
The flattering fits of her designs teamed with the colours, patterns and the history of tartan evoke a sense of pride, confidence and pleasure, and it is the versatility and wearability of her designs that are key to the success of her business today.
Fashion is about feeling – Feel good, feel confident, Be Empowered.” - Mary Wood
