A Second Skin
Edited by Kirsty Dunseath, this is a collection of pieces by women writers reflecting the place that clothes hold in our lives, indeed the hold they have on us. Ranging from the lighthearted and hilarious to the profound and nostalgic, the whole collection is a reflection on the crisis-inducing body coverings that we call clothes.

The column that shops around for fashion news
DR JIVES ARE planning to open a sales shop in Glasgow stocking their back catalogue of clothes, shoes and accessories by the end of November, site yet to be confirmed. Want to know the best bit? Prices will start from a fiver.
LOOK OUT FOR the launch of two new ranges from Glasgow- based designers Niall Ryalls and William Sutherland. The first is called JengaThreads and, as you might have guessed, it is connected with top big beat 015, The Jengaheads. The brilliant T-shirts are being distributed now among friends and influential people, and a launch of the full range looks set for sometime in early January. The second range is still a bit of a secret but Niall assures The List that it will be 'nice’. Expect to hear rumours now before the actual launch at Christmas.

Claiming to stock Scotland's largest range of exotic mahogany and teak hardwood colonial Dutch-style furniture from Indonesia, the shop has a hefty range of exquisite items and small bits and pieces that won't destroy your budget. Phone 0141204 0110 for more details.
