“Charity Chic” Project Launch

Money

Today is the launch of our annual “Charity Chic” fashion exhibition project!

Our Fashion Management, Event Management and Public Relations students will be split into 12 teams and assigned a charity. Their task is to source an outfit from their designated charity shop and design an exhibition space to showcase their garment, promote the charity, and which ties in with the overarching theme of Aberdeen Business School’s 50th anniversary celebrations! The students will work together to plan a creative launch night event to take place on Thursday the 16th of April and the exhibition will run for two weeks from this point.

We can’t wait to see what they come up with!

Wimbledon Chic

Earlier this week our fourth year Events Management students were taken on a trip to London and visited some famous British venues, including Wimbledon. There they found this fabulous window display and learned about the changing trends in tennis uniform (amongst other things)! What do you think of the Wimbledon chic?

Happy New Year

We’d like to wish our fashionable followers all our very best wishes for 2015!

It’s our first week back in the office (or our fashion avenue as it’s become known) and we’re gearing up for some big events in 2015! This year, Aberdeen Business School celebrates its 50th anniversary and we’ll be celebrating in style with some “fabulous at fifty” themed events!

The first, our annual Affordable Style exhibition, will be launched on Thursday the 16th of April from 6pm at Aberdeen Business School. Entry is free but guests are encouraged to make a small donation to a chosen charity (or charities) during the evening. This event brings together first year Fashion, Events Management and Public Relations students who will work in teams to organise the event and raise funds and awareness for 12 charities. The students are given £10 per team and a designated charity and they’re tasked with choosing and styling a garment for the exhibition and planning some value adding initiatives for the night of the exhibition launch. For those who can’t make it to the launch, the exhibition will remain in the atrium for two weeks. We’re very excited to see what will be showcased this year! Here are some examples from previous years.

Our second event of the year is our annual student fashion show where our third years will work together in teams to organise and manage the project from start to finish! This year’s show will take place on Friday the 29th of May and will also include fiftieth anniversary twist. Here are some photos from last year’s Northern Lights themed fashion show.

More on both of these events will be revealed soon…

November flashback

November flashback

We’re feeling nostalgic again so here’s a little flashback to November 2012 at the Fashion Place.

It was a busy month where we saw our stage 2 students complete their photoshoots for the magazine project and our first years launch their “Charity Chic” fashion exhibition. This year the students are busy with the photoshoots once again so watch this space…

The fashion exhibition will take place in April this year and we can’t wait! It’s set to be a big project which will involve Fashion Management, PR and Events Management students at Aberdeen Business School. We’ll update you with more information about this in the new year!

Happy Birthday Trend!

The latest issue celebrates the sixth anniversary of Aberdeen’s fashion and lifestyle magazine and we are very proud to be represented in this fabulous pre-Christmas edition; with our very own Morven MacSween (stage 3 Fashion Management) gracing the cover – in honour of her appearance in the very first edition, when she was only 15 – and testimonials from our fashion management staff (Karen and Madeleine) .

Trend have been very supportive of our Fashion Management programme – the BA (Hons) Fashion Management is also 6 years old! – where they offer an exciting placement opportunity to our third years and we are very pleased to sponsor a prize at the Trend Awards each year!
