Edinburgh’s top hotel and West End girls make bold fashion statement


Two of Edinburgh’s smartest independent brands – The Chester Residence and Sam Brown Boutique – are joining forces for a fashion event that is likely to prove one of the hottest tickets in town.

Top-rated TripAdvisor hotel, The Chester Residence, will host a day of spring/summer 2014 fashion shows for fellow West End entrepreneur, Sam Brown, on Wednesday 19 March at its Rothesay Place hotel.

The Chester Residence’s General Manager, Mark Lambson, said: “We’re used to welcoming stylish guests from all over the globe to our stunning West End property, and Sam Brown is renowned for dressing some of Edinburgh’s most fashionable ladies. Combining The Chester Residence venue with Sam’s top picks for this spring and summer makes perfect sense.

“Now that we’re reaching the end of winter, many people are planning short –and long – breaks to Scotland’s capital city. With our West End location, we are highly fortunate to be able to offer such a rich selection of independent, highly individual and excellent boutiques, bars, restaurants and other visitor attractions within a short distance from the hotel.”

Sam Withall of Sam Brown Boutique said: “The opportunity to host one of my shop’s highlights of the year at The Chester Residence was unmissable. The award-winning venue oozes style and luxurious quality, and I can’t think of a better backdrop to my 2014 spring/summer edit. I know that my clients will love the modern, elegant atmosphere of The Chester Residence.”

The free shows will take place at 11.30am, 6pm and 8pm, providing ample opportunity for even the busiest woman to come and enjoy herself.  A glass of champagne, a catch-up with the girls in a glamorous location and a glimpse of Sam Brown’s exclusive collections, should provide the most pleasurable start to spring and summer 2014.

150 tickets are available on a first come, first served basis free of charge from Sam Brown on 0131 226 7732.
