Kilt voted most popular traditional garment, globally

International designers such as Vivienne Westwood and late Alexander McQueen had showcased 'kilt' during their fashion shows. Scotland's kilt has now officially become the most popular traditional apparel, world over.

A recent poll on global traditional apparels revealed that, 67 percent of votes were in favour of kilt, thus, placing kilt at the top position with many women describing it as an attractive garment on a man.

Following the kilt was the Japanese kimono standing second in the global clothing list, whilst third position was taken by Hawaiian grass skirt.

However, Scottish designers said that, kilt topping the chart of traditional garments, the world over, was no surprise for them, especially when kilt had generated its own New York fashion show 'Dressed to Kilt' and the same had become popular.

According to Tessa Hartmann, Scottish Fashion Week organizer, “Globally, kilt is considered to be one the most iconic piece of fashion clothing. Although, it dates back to the 16th century, it has constantly been updated by designers. They continue to do varied things with it.”

More so, Hartmann also averred that, if one can carry the kilt on him/her skillfully, then they can excel in any kind of clothing. She said, “It is more of a statement then just a garment or an accessory.”

Last month, Chris Hoy, Olympic gold medalist in cycling, was listed as the latest high-profile Scot to have married wearing a kilt. His outfit comprised of traditional tartan kilt with a modern suit jacket and a waistcoat.

Hoy's outfit was designed by Howie Nicholsby, kilt manufacturer from Edinburgh. Last year, Nicholsby launched his shop, '21st Century Kilts'. He said that, Scotland's national outfit looks great when worn well, be it then in the contemporary style or the traditional Prince Charlie style.
