A KILTMAKER from Edinburgh will lead the 2014 Tartan Day Parade on New York City’s 6th Avenue into the annual occasion of Scottish heritage.
Howie Nicholsby happens to be known the Grand Marshal associated with 2014 ny Tartan Day Parade, an honour which Scots and Scottish Americans tend to be granted after making a substantial share inside their area.
The parade occurs on Saturday April fifth, with nearly 3000 Scottish-Americans likely to march before an audience of more than 20, 000 spectators collecting along 6th Avenue waving Scottish flags.
The Scot used in the father’s footsteps of tailoring and started his business 21st Century Kilts, which gives a distinctive take on the original tartan-themed Scottish outfits for males.
Kilts was previously much more every day wear in centuries past but Howie chose to offer an updated version, made of contemporary materials; leather-based, denim, camouflage, pinstripe, to give today’s guys a realistic replacement for pants.
Performers such as Brian Cox, Alan Cumming and Kevin McKidd have all worn Nicholsby's projects.
Promising to wear an unforgettable outfit, Nicholsby will lead the yearly parade and his musical organization of models referred to as 'Hunks'.
Following the Parade, Nicholsby will undoubtedly be hanging out with American Celtic rock-band, The American Rogues, on Post-Parade celebration at Desmond’s Steakhouse.
Generally one of many busiest streets in the united states, NYPD will stop traffic on New York’s 6th Avenue allowing the parade of tartan-clad Scottish bagpipers, groups, Scottie and Westie dogs, as well as Nessie, the Loch Ness Monster to entertain the crowds of people over the Avenue.
The brand new York Tartan Day Parade could be the culmination of brand new York’s Tartan Week - a week of activities to display the contributions of Scots and Scottish-Americans while celebrating Scottish history.
Nicholsby said: “It’s a privilege to lead the parade in world’s most well-known city, ny. I will be so happy to truly have the chance to display creative Scottish design and Scottish textiles.
"I'm Able To hardly wait to know the cheers associated with crowds while they welcome the pipe groups, the organizations, the dancers not to mention my Hunks.”
Margaret Kennedy, Parade Committee President, stated: “We are happy we have Howie Nicholsby strutting his things, showing-off Scottish design, inventiveness and fabrics. Such as the other Grand Marshals before him, he appears fabulous in a kilt and swears, indeed, he has actuallyn’t worn pants in fifteen years.
