Glasgow 2014 unveils official Games dress created by Scots designer

Glasgow 2014 has unveiled the stunning dress which will be worn by female Medal Bearers at the 2014 Commonwealth Games.

Created by renowned Scots designer Kerry Nixon, the designs will be worn in the Medal Ceremonies and showcased on the world stage, seen by around 1.5 billion television viewers when the games open in Glasgow later this year.

The dress, which has been a closely guarded secret until now, is vibrant and stylish and made in the Official Glasgow 2014 Tartan.

“I’m delighted to be a part of the Glasgow 2014 Commonwealth Games.  It’s a huge honour for me to design and now showcase the Medal Bearer’s dress and represent my hometown of Glasgow at such an exciting time for the City,” said Kerry.

“Glasgow 2014 has been fortunate to work with Kerry Nixon, a globally acclaimed designer, on the design of the dresses to be worn by our female Medal Bearers,” added David Grevemberg, Chief Executive of Glasgow 2014.

“Kerry’s creation is everything we could have wanted – stylish, contemporary and fun.  

“Her use of The Official Glasgow 2014 Tartan and collaboration with the Scottish textile industry is admirable and consistent with our desire to showcase Scottish style and creativity.” 

Glasgow 2014 Commonwealth Games will run from 23 July — 3 August 2014.
