Happy New Year to all our fashionable followers! We hope you’ve had a lovely festive season. As we look forward to welcoming our students back later this month, we’re remembering some of the highlights of 2015 – most of which involve Aberdeen Business School’s fiftieth anniversary celebrations! Our students have presented some interesting takes on what has been a truly memorable golden anniversary year, including themed photoshoots, videos, events and our annual fashion management magazine!

We look forward to seeing what 2016 has in store…

ABS 50 Christmas party 

 
We had a fabulous time at our ABS50 Christmas party on Friday night! 

This all staff celebration was the culmination of a suite of events themed around the 50th anniversary of Aberdeen Business School; these included our very own fashion exhibition in April and fashion show in May! 

Winter Graduation 

  
Huge congratulations to our students who graduated this afternoon! It was lovely to see so many of our MSc Fashion Management students. We hope you have fun celebrating your successes. Keep in touch!

We Love Fashion

We had a fantastic time at last night’s Love Fashion event; organised by Trend and Premiere Productions. This is a new and unique event celebrating fashion from the North East of Scotland.

We were inspired by festive party wear and winter outerwear in this timely event. Once again we were wowed by the fabulous designs of Atelier Daniel Crozier and there was some fantastic local entertainment including singers and dancers!

Thanks to our students who were helping behind the scenes and whose efforts were described as “outstanding” by the organisers. Looking forward to what is set to become an annual event!

 

A project-based approach to teaching

We had a great time at last week’s ABS50 Research Conference where we heard some interesting presentations and keynotes. Our Fashion Place contribution was two posters showcasing examples of a project-based approach to teaching. This year’s Magazine Project and Fashion Exhibition celebrated the 50th Anniversary of Aberdeen Business School so it seemed very fitting that these should be included in the conference! Well done to all the students who made these projects a success!

Presenting the Golden Show Cheque

Cheque Photo

Yesterday our students presented the cheque for funds raised during the Golden Show fashion event to Down’s Syndrome Scotland. We celebrated by watching a video of the event, for the benefit of the students who were busy styling and organising models backstage on the night of the show.

Well done everyone and congratulations on organising a fantastic event and raising an impressive sum for a local charity.

Fashion exhibition project

Happy Friday everyone!

Have you ever wondered what goes into organising a fashion exhibition? Here’s a behind the scenes look at the weeks running up to our Fabulous at Fifty fashion exhibition which took place in April this year – in celebration of the fiftieth anniversary of Aberdeen Business School!

A huge thanks to Karen Mitchell from our BA (Hons) Public Relations course for taking the time to film and edit this video.

Have a lovely fashion filled weekend!
