Fashion destination exhibition

This week marked the end of our first years’ exhibition, which showcased fashion destinations from around the world. We’re delighted to share some of their creative ideas, captured beautifully by third year BA (Hons) Media students (Christie Breen and Alexis Flores) who’ve been on placement with our media team.

 

This project required students to work in teams, across a range of courses (fashion, events, PR and tourism) within the School of Creative and Cultural Business at RGU, in order to plan a creative exhibition and organise a launch event. Ten teams of students were assigned a charity and given £10 with which to buy a garment from the charity’s local branch. Their aim was to communicate a fashion destination of their choice, using the garment and charity as inspiration. Showcases included Scotland, Paris, Nigeria, Moscow, New York, Kenya, China and Hollywood.

During the launch event, students were tasked with promoting their charity and many chose to fundraise through bake sales and competitions. One team even brought along a mascot in the form of Lily the dog; this tied in well with their charity (PDSA) and she gained their team a lot of attention at the event.

We’re so proud of the commitment and enthusiasm our students gave to this project – well done to everyone involved!

Colour exhibition

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.

 

The Cotton Candies

Group 1 Cotton Candies

Who doesn’t love candy floss and a touch of pink? That’s what one of our student groups thought when they chose a candy striped shirt from Aberdeen’s Cancer Research shop! Styled with a denim skirt, the Cotton Candies plan to theme their fashion showcase around a traditional British carnival – inspired by the hit musical and movie Grease. 

We look forward to seeing this colourful, feel-good fun brought to life at the exhibition launch on the 12th of April! We’re guessing there will be sweeties involved…

Breakfast at Barnardo’s

Group 10 BreakfastatTiffanys

As promised, we are pleased to reveal the first of our themes from this year’s fashion exhibition, Breakfast at Barnardo’s!

Our students would like to invite you to visit their creative showcase inspired by the Barnardo’s mission and the Audrey Hepburn classic Breakfast at Tiffany’s. Want to find out more? Come along to the launch event between 12 and 2 on Wednesday the 12th of April…

The exhibition will be in the atrium for the next two weeks.

Have a great weekend!

Farewell to the Innovation in Magazines exhibition

PPA 1

49 going on 50

Group 1 Poster

Aberdeen Business School turns 50 this year and we’re hosting a series of events to celebrate! Here’s the first visual from our Events, Fashion and PR students who are working together to organise our annual fashion exhibition, taking place on the 16th of April.

There are 12 groups working on separate exhibition spaces – all inspired by our 50th anniversary! Each team has been given £10 to be spent on a garment from a designated charity shop in Aberdeen. Our first team will showcase their customised Barnardo’s garment in a Sound of Music inspired exhibition, as the film was also released in the 1960s. Watch this space for more of our exhibition visuals.
