ethical fashion blogger | freelance fashion writer | BRAND STORYTELLER
My name is Ruth MacGilp, I am Edinburgh-based blogger, freelance fashion writer, and digital marketing professional with a special interest in ethical and sustainable fashion. I have experience studying Fashion Communication at Heriot-Watt University, Fashion Management at Robert Gordon University, and Fashion Promotion and Styling at Central Saint Martins and Parsons School of Design.
In 2016, I won Scottish Blogger of the Year, and in 2017 was a runner up in Sustainable Online Business of the Year, at the Herald Fashion Awards, and I regularly attend Graduate Fashion Week, London Fashion Week and New York Fashion Week as a member of the press.
I have worked for various creative companies in Scotland, including the Scottish Design Exchange, Fashion Fix Daily, Craft Scotland and Scotland Re:Designed, and I regularly collaborate with international ethical fashion brands for my blog. I have written articles published in the likes of Not Just A Label, Teran, Feroce, The Glass Pineapple and She Is Fierce.
After several years of freelance social media and marketing management for various fashion brands, I now work full-time as a Brand Storyteller at UK-wide stills and film service production company LS Productions, creating and curating content to promote the high end fashion campaigns and editorials the company produces, as well as car commercials, music videos and more.
Finally, I volunteer with the Scotland team for international non-profit organisation Fashion Revolution, a charity campaigning tirelessly for a fairer, safer and cleaner fashion and textiles industry. Find out more about the ongoing work of Fashion Revolution here.
