We’re really excited to share the visuals from the launch of yesterday’s Fashion Exhibition: a Celebration of Creativity and Culture!

Fam Fatale (a play on Oxfam and femme fatale) represented Oxfam and the Great Gatsby in their creative showcase. We loved their champagne (ok cloudy lemonade…) tower and geometric display.

The tarot cards reading on the Beetlejuice stand was a big hit and helped raise money and awareness of the charity Shelter.

Aladdin’s Angels promoted Save the Children through their interpretation of the Disney film. Their balloon animals and flying carpet were very memorable!

Guests were invited to have Breakfast at Barnardo’s… Breakfast mainly consisted of cake but they were delicious! Their goody bags also included mini tiaras (which most of the guests and students were wearing by the end of the launch).

We were delighted to welcome some representatives from Stella’s Voice to the Annie showcase!

The one with the fashion exhibition… Coffee, Friends quotes and a very Rachel-esque garment made for a strong theme (they even had a sofa!) Supporting Chest, Heart and Stroke Scotland, this showcase included some healthy alternatives to cake!

The Cotton Candies didn’t disappoint with their carnival theme, representing Cancer Research and engaging the audience with music and games.

Inspired by the Capitol represented CLAN through a Hunger Games inspired showcase in an eye catching purple that tied in really well with the charity (and RGU‘s) branding!

There were some fantastic home bakes on offer from all the stands at the exhibition but the Downton Abbey showcase, supporting Sue Ryder Care, went that extra mile with their English afternoon tea atmosphere which included home made bunting, tray bakes, scones and jam.

If you were Clueless about any of the charities before the exhibition, we’re sure you won’t be now… Our final showcase promoted the PDSA!

A huge well done to all the students involved! This project really demonstrates the value of charity shops in providing inspirational and wearable fashion garments.

The exhibition will be on display in the atrium of the School of Creative and Culture Business at RGU until Wednesday the 26th of April where you can find out more about the themes, garments and charities.

Over the next few weeks, and in the run up to the fashion show, we have a number of fundraising events planned! The first will take place tomorrow in Aberdeen’s Bon Accord & St Nicholas and our students have been working hard this morning to organise some fun Easter themed activities! We’ll be in the centre tomorrow from 10am to 5pm, next to Costa, so come along and see us to find out more about the fashion show and our charity, Down’s Syndrome Scotland.

Farewell to the Innovation in Magazines exhibition

PPA 1

Today we said farewell to the Innovation in Magazines exhibition alongside representatives from PPA Scotland and other members in the North East magazine industry, including Trend magazine, Dee ‘n’ Do and Grampian Wedding Directory.
