Alison’s long-time interest in British Tweed1 led her, in August 2010, to create Tweed Vixen’s blog to considerable international acclaim; her writing generating a large and devoted following. Encouraged by her supportive father, Alison submitted a business plan to the bank which was subsequently approved. Alison designs her own Tweed Vixen range of clothing and accessories, such as this 100% Scottish Lambswool Camel Crew Sweater and this Sterling Silver Feather Necklace as well as carefully selecting additional quality products to compliment her own range.
We all wish Alison the success her hard work deserves.
