Partnering with Lyle & Scott

Back To News

Lyle & Scott is a fashion and sportswear brand with over 141 years of British manufacturing and golfing heritage.
Our BSc Fashion Technology students worked on a product development and design project with Lyle & Scott’s Sports Business Unit, specifically focusing on golf.
The students were asked to design a technical outfit made up of three garments, for Lyle & Scott’s Golf Performance SS18 Range. They were also asked to complete a technical pack for manufacturing. The project allowed the Fashion Technology students the opportunity to apply their commercial and technical skills for this leading performance sportswear brand.

Amarise Miller (Fashion Technology year 3) produced the best project; she considered the technical aspects of the garments, designing a range that satisfied the needs of form and function. Her technical manufacturing pack was also produced to an industry standard.
Amarise will undertake one month’s paid industry placement with Lyle & Scott this summer as a reward.

The winning project

Mellissa Oliver, Customer Experience Manager from Lyle & Scott said:

‘Working with Heriot-Watt has been a thoroughly enjoyable experience – the students’ work was of a high standard and we were impressed with the finalists. We are looking forward to welcoming Amarise to the Lyle & Scott Sports team in June.’

Well done to all the students and good luck to Amarise in her placement.
