A Stewarton bonnet-maker has linked up with global fashion brand Dior for a special collection. 

Robert Mackie of Scotland has been in operation in the town since 1845, making traditional bonnets. 

For Christian Dior's new Cruise 2025 collection by Maria Grazia Chiuri, the company created special Balmoral bonnets with the added Dior emblem. 

Robert Mackie staff worked with millinery maestro Stephen Jones to develop a new take on the pompom-adorned Balmoral bonnet.

The collection was showcased in a star-studded event at Drummond Castle, with celebrities including Jennifer Lawrence in attendance.

Jones said: "Its very important for Dior to work with people locally whenever they do a show. 

"We wanted to combine something which is traditional but that is also new and fashion. 

"Most people don't know that this is actually knitted. It goes into a very special and antique machine and the fibres knit themselves together. 

"Robert Mackie incorporates a lot of the traditional techniques and heritage. Some of the processes are exactly the same as it would have been back then."
