Linlithgow Palace, West Lothian

In just a few weeks the eyes of the fashion world will descend upon Linlithgow Palace where prestigious fashion brand Chanel will host its upcoming Metier d’Arts show in December amidst the stunning  backdrop of the 15th century ruined castle.

Known for being the birthplace of Mary Queen of Scots and King James V, it is expected that there will be a number of A-list celebrities in attendance at the fashion show, with Brad Pitt, Angelina Jolie and Kiera Knightly rumoured to be on the guest list.

The BBC reported yesterday that Chanel Creative Director Karl Lagerfeld chose Scotland as being the ideal location for the fashion show for its world class craftsmanship of fabrics such as tweed and cashmere:

This year, Karl Lagerfeld has chosen Edinburgh as the location for the collection, inspired by the rich heritage of Chanel in Scotland, and the skilled craftsmanship of Scottish tweed and cashmere, that are an integral and iconic part of Chanel’s collections today.
