We’re delighted to reveal this year’s fashion show logo…

Over the next eight weeks, our students will work in teams to organise our annual fashion show. The show will take place on Friday the 29th of May with doors opening at 7pm. This year’s theme will celebrate the 50th anniversary of Aberdeen Business School through a showcase of formal and informal party attire from Aberdeen’s Bon Accord & St Nicholas alongside some other local retailers (watch this space).

More on this very soon…

Fabulous at Fifty – poster display

Fabulous at Fifty Poster display

Happy Friday!

Our Fabulous at Fifty poster board is now on display in the Aberdeen Business School atrium, to promote the fashion exhibition on the 16th of April! These are currently framing the National Student Survey (which our fourth year students must remember to do!) posters. We think they look great – well done everyone!

Have a lovely weekend!

Annus Moris – March flashback

AnnusMoris March 2014

It’s March (already) and here’s our monthly throwback to this time last year when our first year fashion management students were creating commonwealth themed window displays to celebrate Glasgow 2014! This year’s theme… the fiftieth anniversary of Aberdeen Business School (of course)! Watch this space…

Happy New Year

We’d like to wish our fashionable followers all our very best wishes for 2015!

It’s our first week back in the office (or our fashion avenue as it’s become known) and we’re gearing up for some big events in 2015! This year, Aberdeen Business School celebrates its 50th anniversary and we’ll be celebrating in style with some “fabulous at fifty” themed events!

The first, our annual Affordable Style exhibition, will be launched on Thursday the 16th of April from 6pm at Aberdeen Business School. Entry is free but guests are encouraged to make a small donation to a chosen charity (or charities) during the evening. This event brings together first year Fashion, Events Management and Public Relations students who will work in teams to organise the event and raise funds and awareness for 12 charities. The students are given £10 per team and a designated charity and they’re tasked with choosing and styling a garment for the exhibition and planning some value adding initiatives for the night of the exhibition launch. For those who can’t make it to the launch, the exhibition will remain in the atrium for two weeks. We’re very excited to see what will be showcased this year! Here are some examples from previous years.

Our second event of the year is our annual student fashion show where our third years will work together in teams to organise and manage the project from start to finish! This year’s show will take place on Friday the 29th of May and will also include fiftieth anniversary twist. Here are some photos from last year’s Northern Lights themed fashion show.

More on both of these events will be revealed soon…

Happy Birthday Trend!

Happy Birthday Trend!

We’d like to wish Trend Aberdeen a very happy birthday!

The latest issue celebrates the sixth anniversary of Aberdeen’s fashion and lifestyle magazine and we are very proud to be represented in this fabulous pre-Christmas edition; with our very own Morven MacSween (stage 3 Fashion Management) gracing the cover – in honour of her appearance in the very first edition, when she was only 15 – and testimonials from our fashion management staff (Karen and Madeleine) .

Trend have been very supportive of our Fashion Management programme – the BA (Hons) Fashion Management is also 6 years old! – where they offer an exciting placement opportunity to our third years and we are very pleased to sponsor a prize at the Trend Awards each year!
