Tilda Swinton sparked a row after hiring controversial artist David Shrigley to promote their latest collection.

Shrigley – a former newspaper cartoonist who also directed a music video for Blur – slated fashion shows as “boring”, adding that most models live on “fluff and cocaine”.

However critics have said that the film could damage Scotland’s reputation overseas, adding that it is crude and depicts Scotland as backward.

The video has already been shown in Milan and New York, but the former Glasgow School of Art student said it was “difficult to say” what the reaction was at the fashion events.
