3 Weeks to World of Colour…

3 Weeks to World of Colour...

With less than 3 weeks until the World of Colour fashion show, our students are busy fundraising for MND Scotland. Last week the students took part in a sponsored cycle at RGU: Sport where they raised £180 and cycled 180 miles – £1 per mile (which could take them from Milan to Venice)!

Yesterday the students raised over £230 selling vintage treasures at a car boot sale in Errol!

Watch out for them in Aberdeen’s Bon Accord & St Nicholas this weekend, where they’ll be in the centre all day Saturday – running competitions, painting faces and selling tickets for the World of Colour fashion show!

Countdown to the World of Colour

Fashion Show Tickets are Here

With only four weeks until the show, the World of Colour countdown is on!

Our (student designed) tickets are here and you can email worldofcolour@outlook.com to get yours today.

The show starts at 7pm and will take place in the atrium of Aberdeen Business School. We’ll be showcasing the latest fashions from the Aberdeen Bon Accord & St Nicholas Centre (so guests on the night can “see it today and buy it tomorrow”).

The show will feature walks which represent the world’s fashion capitals (London, Paris, Milan, New York and Tokyo) and there will be “between walk” entertainment.

We’re hosting a raffle on the night (with some fabulous prizes to be won) and a “fashion avenue” retail experience where a number of boutiques will be selling a range of products – from accessories to sweeties.

As a World of Colour guest, you will receive a welcome drink upon arrival and there will be great food and cocktails which are available throughout the evening. You’ll also get a World of Colour goody bag to take home.

All proceeds from the show will go to MND Scotland and we’ll announce the grand total of funds raised at the end of the night.

We hope to see you there!

World of Colour Window

Our third years have spent this morning designing paper dresses for a World of Colour window display at the Fashion Place.

The dresses represent the world’s fashion capitals (London, Paris, Milan, New York and Tokyo) and we also have two special dresses which the students designed – one for MND Scotland and another to represent the world of colour logo and theme overall.

Can you match the paper dresses to their fashion capitals?

Next week we’ll be unveiling our marketing materials for the World of Colour fashion show. Designed, styled and modelled by our third year BA (Hons) Fashion Management students, this year’s marketing materials are inspired by the world’s fashion capitals.

Tickets for the show are being printed right now and – as soon as the ink’s dry – our students will be out selling them.

You can pre-order your ticket by emailing worldofcolour@outlook.com.

World of Colour Mascot

World of Colour Mascot

We’d like to introduce our “World of Colour” fashion show mascot which was kindly donated by the Build a Bear Workshop in the Bon Accord & St Nicholas Centre in Aberdeen.

She still needs a name and all ideas are welcome. Our mascot will be attending fundraising events and helping plan and organise this year’s fashion show.

You can make suggestions and keep in touch with what she’s getting up to via our Facebook (https://www.facebook.com/pages/World-of-Colour/625825420776675?ref=ts&fref=ts) and Twitter (www.twitter.com/worldofcolour) – so please follow us!

Well done to our third years and we hope we’ll be reading more about the event in the local press in the weeks running up to the show.

World of Colour Fashion Show – Friday 24th May

World of Colour Fashion Show - Friday 24th May

Our Stage 3 Fashion Management are currently organising the annual Aberdeen Business School fashion show which will take place on Friday the 24th May 2013.

This year the theme is World of Colour and we’ll be raising money for MND Scotland, which is the only Scottish charity dedicated to people with Motor Neurone Disease (MND), their families, friends and carers.

The inspiration behind our World of Colour will be the latest global trends from the five fashion capitals: London; Paris; Tokyo; Milan; and New York.
