About

An Image of Ruth MacGilp, a fashion blogger.


Hi, I'm Ruth, welcome to my blog! The main theme of Urbanity is ethical fashion. This incorporates cruelty-free beauty, sustainable businesses, supporting Scottish artists and fashion designers and celebrating all things local, independent and vintage. I also regularly write about mental health and wellbeing from a personal perspective. If you love reading about catwalk shows, blogger events, industry news, photoshoots, product reviews and SO much more, you have definitely come to the right place!

 Urbanity Blog is run by Ruth MacGilp, a creative industries enthusiast residing in Scotland's capital. Ruth is a Fashion Communications student at Heriot-Watt University and Head of Fashion at The Scottish Design Exchange. She has worked and interned on every end of the fashion scale and uses Urbanity as a canvas for her creative portfolio.

Urbanity is a newborn enterprise; an ethical fashion and lifestyle blog that captures adventures in style.  It was launched in Summer 2015 with co-founder Sarah Ewen. In November 2016, Ruth was awarded Blogger of the Year for Scotland at the Herald Fashion Awards.
