David Black my new fashion fetish

When religion fuses with fashion you know you are onto a winner.

So when I was given the green light from the minister of St Cuthberts here in Edinburgh to do a photo shoot my prayers had been answered.

You see, inside the church is a small war memorial that's home to a tiny domed alter, covered completely in gold leaf mosaic. Agatha Christie wed there in the 1930s elevating the chapel to cult status around the globe. For a decade I've lusted after it and finally I was let loose inside to shoot.

What made the day even more momentous was photographing David Black's collection there. The Heriot Watt graduate has a touch of early 90s Gianni Versace about is work but with a wicked sense of Scottish melancholy surging through his design's. It's this darkness in the brightly coloured frocks that give Black an edge.

This boy is definitely one to watch...

Check out Monday's Edinburgh Evening News for our 'Gothic Summer' fashion shoot which David features in.
