Our students styled the models in garments from Monsoon, Warehouse and Oasis in Bon Accord & St Nicholas.

The photographers were Martin Parker and Jen BirtlesKelman, who produced some amazing photos keeping with our theme of celebration. There was plenty of confetti used.

Special thanks to all of the retailers who donated, and to Paramount Bar for having us.

Icons of 1960s Fashion

window-for-blog

The final window display implemented by our first years is a wonderful tribute to three iconic dresses of the 1960s. Inspired by the #abs50 theme, this is a great celebration of the Aberdeen Business School’s 50th anniversary. This display has a very special addition of a custom made dress sent over from Italy that offers an RGU twist on the classic Mondrian style designed by Yves Saint Laurent in 1965. Well done to all the first years for designing two spectacular window displays!

Over the last two weeks our third year fashion management students have been busy planning their Golden Show photoshoots, from styling right through to editing. The first took place on Friday in our on-campus photography studio where the students focused on beauty shots of the gorgeous Gillian Leslie (third year Fashion Management student and face of this year’s fashion show). There was lots of confetti and gold leaf involved!
