Vivienne Westwood is well-known for her use of tartan prints and other Scottish textiles on the runway, and for that, the Scottish Fashion Awards inducted the 73-year-old into the Hall of Fame at its annual awards event.

"Dame Vivienne has had an undeterred loyalty and unparalleled love and passion for Scottish textiles and fabrics, which she has consistently used within her collections throughout the years," said Tessa Hartmann, founder of the awards. "She personifies the powerful and subversive originality for British fashion and has done more for Scottish textiles than probably any other designer in this generation. Her brand name is synonymous with the tartan pattern and her fascination for this iconic fabric is unrelenting."

In 1993, Vivienne even created her own official Westwood MacAndreas tartan, in honour of her husband, Andreas Kronthaler.

At the awards on 1 September, Christopher Kane won the Scottish Designer of the Year award, while Simone Rocha took home the international counterpart of that prize. Meanwhile, Hayley Scanlan won the Scottish Young Designer of the Year, and singer-songwriter Amy MacDonald was named the Fashion Icon of the Year. 16-year-old Jean Campbell was crowned Scottish Model of the Year, as model David Gandy picked up the Founder's Award for his support of Scottish and British fashion.
