Shot on location in Scotland, the film features key Scottish landmarks, nature spots and modernistic architecture locations."

R.I.P. Alexander

This is a phenomenal loss for the fashion community. Alexander was a courageous designer, always unafraid to push the envelope and never willing to abandon his own creative vision. He will be greatly missed
