Hot Scots and bold-faced names from New York City and around the globe take over Manhattan and get "Dressed to Kilt" at the highly-anticipated annual event, again hosted by Sir Sean and Lady Connery, taking place Monday, April 5, 2010.

It will be held at M2 Ultra Lounge (530 West 28th Street, between 10th and 11th Avenues), beginning with a cocktail reception at 7:30 p.m., followed by the runway fashion show presentation at 9:00 p.m. The theme of this year's show is Mad for Scotland, celebrating eccentric style and individuality. Participating designers embrace an "anything goes" spirit, ensuring an evening of unconventional elegance, surreal ensembles, stunning fabrics and "mad hatters."

"I am told that this year's Dressed to Kilt (which is themed 'Mad for Scotland') is looking to be the largest and most successful Dressed to Kilt ever," says event host Sir Sean Connery.

Dressed to Kilt has established itself as the highest-profile Scottish event outside of the U.K. and the most prestigious Scottish fashion show in the world. This unique show celebrates all aspects of Caledonian culture from fabric and fashion to art, music and whisky. The Dressed to Kilt fashion show showcases a range of fashions from traditional Highland kilts to designer haute couture fit for royalty, to cutting-edge fashion from Scotland's finest young talent as well as some of the world's top designers who have embraced and incorporated "Scottishness" into their trademark styles.

This year's show features looks from top fashion houses from both sides of the Atlantic, including a special tribute to Alexander McQueen and designs from Vivienne Westwood, 21st Century Kilts, Calzeat & Co Ltd, Holland & Sherry, Johnstons of Elgin, Joey D, Spencer Railton, Lochcharron of Scotland, Michael Kaye Couture, Sandra Murray, Gwen Russell and many more.

Dressed to Kilt is renowned for attracting A-list celebrities and bold-faced names and this year's show is no exception, with celebrity participants including Sir Sean & Lady Connery, Scottish actors Gerard Butler and Alan Cumming, actor Mike Myers, country music singer Kellie Pickler, award-winning actor Sam Waterston, rock icon Joan Jett, renowned journalist Charlie Rose, Miss Scotland Katharine Brown, Scottish rugby team captain Chris Cusiter, Scottish captain of British Olympic curling team Eve Muirhead, Canadian musical group Bowfire, model and actor Marcus Schenkenberg, New York Yankees legend Bernie Williams, Broadway actor Matthew Modine, among many, many more.

For the first time in the history of Dressed to Kilt, The Friends of Scotland charity will be opening a "Pop-Up Shop" in New York to share with the public some of Scotland's finest textiles and designs, from March 22--April 13. Located at 13 East 69th Street, on the corner of Madison Avenue, select designs featured on the runway will be available for sale from Tuesday, April 6 until Sunday, April 11.

Glenfiddichis the title sponsor of this year's event. The show is being presented together with the Scottish textiles industry.
