Research projects

It’s that time of year again and our fourth years are working hard on their Honours dissertations. As always we have a really interesting variety of research projects going on and we’re very much looking forward to reading the results!

One of our students is carrying out research into the use of fashion blogs and is looking for participants (fashion students and non fashion students from 17-30 years old) for a focus group which will take place this month in Aberdeen. If you’re interested in getting involved then please contact Suzy at s.camlin@rgu.ac.uk. Your help is much appreciated!

Magazine Project

Our stage 2 BA (Hons) Fashion Management students have started work on the annual magazine project as part of their module in fashion communication.

The magazine is in its fifth year and each year the students produce something completely different from the last. As part of this project, the students will each produce a magazine cover, fashion spread, product page, article, editor’s letter and contributor profile. 

Last week, we had a visit from fashion photographer and lecturer at Aberdeen College, Steve Smith (http://stevewilliamsmith.com), who gave the students some interesting things to think about and inspiration for the photo shoots they’re currently planning. In order to ensure they get the best possible result from their shoots, the students are working on mood boards to help develop their concepts and convey these to their photographer and models. Most of the students will be working with photography students from Aberdeen College and Gray’s School of Art.

Another interesting aspect of the project is a blogging task  where students are required to set up a blog and, throughout the duration of the project, deliver at least ten posts. We look forward to sharing some of these with you in the next few weeks. The fashion magazine project has helped some of our students establish themselves as successful fashion bloggers, for example Nicola Kirkbridge who graduated in 2012 and works as a stylist in Melbourne, Australia (http://nicola-claire.blogspot.co.uk).

In a few weeks time, the students will choose a name for the magazine. And as soon as we know, you’ll know!
