We’re really enjoying the placement updates our MSc Fashion Management students have been sending through. This is the first year the Masters students have had a placement opportunity as part of the course and we’re so glad to hear that they’re enjoying it!

Here’s an update from Guilia who’s on placement at NEVENA Couture in Knightsbridge, London. The brand offers a bespoke design service, creating beautiful one-of-a-kind pieces alongside small capsule collections.

Fashion exhibition – launched in style

exhibition launch

We’re delighted to announce the successful launch of our annual fashion exhibition which, this year, celebrates the fiftieth anniversary of Aberdeen Business School. The event was a huge success with our students raising £358, collectively, for their charities! Well done to everyone involved and thank you to our guests! The exhibition will be in the atrium for the next two weeks.

Have a great weekend!

Annus Moris – April flashback

Annus Moris April 2015

Happy Friday!

It’s been a sunny (albeit quiet) week at the Fashion Place where our students have been enjoying their Spring break. Here’s a Friday flashback to April 2014 where our first year students were counting down to their fashion exhibition and our fourth years to their dissertation hand-in later this month (which is exactly what this year’s students are doing too)!

Have a fabulous weekend!

Spring break

London April 2015 Karen

What better way to spend Spring break than enjoying the fashion (and sunshine) in London? Here’s some snaps from Karen’s trip so far, where she’s enjoyed some shopping, fashion and cultural events (including the Alexander McQueen Savage Beauty exhibition!)

Other visual highlights have been the Burberry trainers and tulle window display and that of Fendi‘s fashion fairies and Jaeger‘s dogs in fashion!

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!

Group 1 Poster

Aberdeen Business School turns 50 this year and we’re hosting a series of events to celebrate! Here’s the first visual from our Events, Fashion and PR students who are working together to organise our annual fashion exhibition, taking place on the 16th of April.

There are 12 groups working on separate exhibition spaces – all inspired by our 50th anniversary! Each team has been given £10 to be spent on a garment from a designated charity shop in Aberdeen. Our first team will showcase their customised Barnardo’s garment in a Sound of Music inspired exhibition, as the film was also released in the 1960s. Watch this space for more of our exhibition visuals.
