Loch Dress was born from a passion to create and a love of tartan. “I am definitely a proud Scot, and I absolutely love tartan, always have, the colours, the patterns, the history and the simple pleasures and pride felt by the wearer and in the eyes of the beholder.”

Inverness born and bred designer Mary Wood brought together her passions in life to create her brand Loch Dress, and has become well known for her distinctive Tartan-tastic designs. Her fun and friendly approach to life shines bright in her designs - “classy with a bit of sassy”.  

After having her daughters and getting married young Mary began her fashion career working for the family business Anna Macneil but the need to create her own design style was always there, so during this time she undertook various courses to perfect her skills and to hone and learn more techniques, designing and creating along the way. Mary’s designs are traditional and timeless with a sophisticated edge. Her ultimate purpose for her brand is to promote pride, individuality and empowerment in all women.

“Be Unique, Be Beautiful, Be YOU.” - Mary Wood
