Lady Chrystel Kilts
How does a French seamstress and fashion designer come to the art of kilt making? I was born in Lyon, France, a city world-famous for its mills and its silks. I completed my studies in haute couture and for years specialised
in wedding gowns and other custom made garments. With the legacy of the Donnachàidh, MacKinnon, Lindsay and Montgomery flowing in the bloodstream of my husband Robert and our two daughters,
I must say it seemed only natural for me to have been drawn towards Highland wear,
and I began to research the historical origins of the Scottish kilt.As a professional seamstress, I was quickly enthralled by the different aspects
that this research revealed.Today, I specialise in historical pleating of the Lady Chrystel Kilts , such as box pleated kilts,Kingussie kilts, and offer a line of Period inspired Highland wear.
