BFS Funding Announcement, 28th March 2019

Edinburgh St James has partnered with National Museums Scotland to sponsor its upcoming exhibition Body Beautiful: Diversity on the Catwalk. The exhibition, which is coming to the National Museum of Scotland this May, will be the first of its kind in the world and will explore how fashion creatives are embracing inclusivity and body positivity.

Carl Watt, Head of Programmes at Arts & Business Scotland, said:

“We are proud to be match funding Edinburgh St James’ sponsorship of Body Beautiful through our Culture & Business Fund Scotland as it is a unique exhibition looking at the important issue of diversity in the fashion industry. It is heartening that businesses like Edinburgh St James are embracing and supporting cultural projects in Scotland which promote diversity and challenge audience perceptions. Their partnership with National Museums Scotland, and others like this, not only benefits the project that is receiving sponsorship but also offers the business an opportunity for profile building and to positively associate itself with the cultural organisation producing the exhibition or event.”
