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.

70’s Style by Thea Porter

We had a fantastic time in London last week (a little sad it’s all over – until next year anyway). Here are some photos of the Thea Porter exhibit at the Fashion and Textile Museum in London, showcasing topical 70’s style.

“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!

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!

Colour Exhibition

Colour Exhibition

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!
