go reborn originated in 2009 as a pop-up collective of artists, designers and misfits. Nothing has changed on that front. We believe in self-promotion and collaboration through presenting wonderful, innovative talent direct to the general public – made especially valid during these leaner economic times. The best in independent fashion, art, design and word converge to help bring a better understanding to the quality endeavours occurring on your doorstep. We make no plea for grandeur or notoriety. Simply, we wish wild expression to be inclusive for all.

“When I stepped into go reborn (#GR2) during a weekend visit up from London to DJ in my old stomping ground I felt a blast of unfettered young creativity hit me squarely between the eyes. It is rare to find anywhere in Edinburgh where new designers have the opportunity to explore their talent and enthusiasm with such freedom and success, and even more unusual to find it in the heart of the commercial sector. go reborn was more than a match for similar enterprises I have seen in any other European city and I would describe it as an unqualified success. Looking forward to the next one!”
