This week we welcomed our students back from their Christmas break! It’s great to see the campus so lively again (even if we do have to wait a little longer when queuing for our morning coffee!)
Second semester at the Fashion Place is always a really exciting one where our students are involved in a number of live projects and placements. Many of our third years have just started their work experience placements this week and there are some fantastic opportunities including: Harvey Nichols, Hemingway Design, Johnstons of Elgin, and the Herald and Times. Later in the semester, our Masters students will be going off on placement and we look forward to sharing more on this soon!
A number of events will take place over the next few months and our students will be busy organising these over the coming weeks. One event will be our annual charity Fashion exhibition; this is organised by teams of first year Fashion Management, Events Management, PR and Tourism students. This year’s exhibition theme will be Fashion Destinations and students are tasked to choose a fashion destination (city, country, region or ‘place’), source and style a charity shop garment and designing an exhibition space around this.
Our first years are also starting work on their window display ideas for their Store Design and Visual Merchandising module; this year’s theme is Sustainability and we’re keen to see how this is interpreted by our students.
Our digital fashion event has also kicked off and this year the students have teamed up local designer Lindsay and Yoshi to create a fashion film. This will be launched on the client’s website in March!
Looking forward to sharing more on these projects over the coming weeks…
