New York's Dressed To Kilt Show Cancelled

The annual Dressed to Kilt show - held in New York as part of Tartan Week - has been cancelled. The event is the fashion element of a week-long showcase of Scottish culture in the city, but this year it will not take place.

The event organiser cited illness as the reason for its cancellation, telling  The Scotsman that he had resolved a recent dispute over the Dressed to Kilt name, giving him control of the trademark again.

Some better news for Tartan Week organisers, however, is that Scotland's first minister, Alex Salmond, will attend the inaugural lecture at Glasgow Caledonian University's new New York campus.

The University announced last year that it planned to open a campus in the Big Apple - the first British University to do so - and the school's first town hall meeting will be held at its Wooster Street space.
