This week our eleventh cohort of first year Fashion Management students have injected some colour into the campus with their fashion exhibition. Each year, as part of their Fashion Design Concepts and Communication module, the students are tasked with working in teams to create a colour exhibition.
The module aims to introduce our students to the basic components of visual communication and familiarise them with industry standard design software such as Adobe Photoshop and Kaledo Lectra.
It’s the first of a series of creative exhibitions that the students present during their time on the course. We look forward to seeing what else they have in store…
The last board (below) is particularly fitting with the autumnal mood on campus!
Over the past week our first year and masters students have been working on their colour inspired mood boards. These are currently on display as an exhibition in the atrium of the School of Creative and Cultural Business.
The students produce these each year as part of their Fashion Design Concepts module. It’s really interesting to see how the students interpret the task differently each year, reflecting on changing trends and influences.
Our first years’ colour exhibition mood boards have brightened up the Aberdeen Business School atrium this past week. There are some very interesting visuals on display this year. Well done to everyone involved!
Red and yellow and pink and green…
We spotted this beautiful rainbow yesterday, lighting up the October sky!
Our annual colour exhibition has arrived and our first year students’ work is on display in the Aberdeen Business School atrium.
The exhibition looks great and it’s interesting to see the different ways in which our students interpret this project each year!
We love this photo of the Fashion Place, taken by Ray Smith this summer!
Our World of Colour window display really brightened up the campus while our students were away.
Here’s our October Annus Moris flashback. This time last year we were preparing for our first year students’ annual colour exhibition and welcoming Fiona Blunsdon to our team!
We also had our annual guest lecture from Aberdeen College’s fashion photographer Steve Smith. We’re looking forward to Steve’s lecture in a couple of weeks and look out for this year’s colour exhibition later this month! Lots more photos to follow…

Our World of Colour fashion show has been and gone and was a huge success! Our stage 3 Fashion Management students raised a grand total of £8,826 for MND Scotland! Here’s a short documentary which the students put together and showed on the night. Lots of photos to follow!
With only one week until our World of Colour fashion show, organisation is under way and our students have been working on their decorations for the show. These include handmade city scapes, paper dresses and a giant World of Colour logo collage.
The last of our fundraising activities will take place tomorrow night, where the students are participating in a fancy dress pub crawl of Aberdeen; all funds raised will go to MND Scotland (www.mndscotland.org.uk).
We’ve sold out of VIP tickets but there are still standard tickets available and you can buy yours today by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org. Our standard ticket includes a complementary goody bag, cocktail and full access to our retail experience on the night.
We’re looking forward to a busy week of fashion show preparation!
