Travel in style with St James Quarter
Edinburgh’s iconic tram played host to a fashion flashmob as St James Quarter celebrated the launch of its Edinburgh Style Weekend (3rd – 6th November), taking this season’s must have styles off the rack and onto the track.
Commuters who surprisingly found themselves on the FROW were given a sneak peek of the runway looks from this weekend’s fashion shows, with models styled in stylish, sparkly, attention grabbing looks from brands including Reiss, John Lewis & Partners, & Other Stories, Bershka, Stradivarius and Superdry – it was definitely an unexpected moment.
Those who missed out will have the chance to see all the looks and more on the runway at this weekend’s Edinburgh Style taking place on the Quarter’s Level 5 rooftop, with epic views of the city as well as being projected through the Quarter and beyond. The shows will feature looks styled by the Grazia fashion team as well as an evening Gala show featuring an additional show by flagship store John Lewis & Partners.
Edinburgh Style will feature styling sessions with the Grazia team, as well as workshops with some of the Quarters’ best loved brands including John Lewis, Kiehl’s, designers Ro & Zo and Dyson. Events include:
Hair Styling Masterclass with Dyson
Christmas Gifting with Grazia
H Beauty Carnival

Sleep Workshop with Neom
Beauty lovers are invited to immerse themselves in this season’s trending makeup looks by visiting H beauty’s exclusive Carnival – featuring a line-up of tutorials, workshops and influencer masterclasses hosted by Love Island superstar Paige Turley
Specially branded Edinburgh Style taxis will also be out and about in the city all weekend, offering complimentary rides to St James Quarter for any lucky fashion lovers who hop on board. Those travelling by car can also take advantage of reduced parking prices when they stay for three hours or more.
