Prada guest talk

We’d like to say a huge thank you to Lamberto Berti, Industrial Relations Director for the Prada Group, who joined us all the way from Florence this afternoon.

This was an excellent opportunity for our students (and staff!) to gain an insight into the evolution of the iconic Prada Group and brought to life many of the subjects from across the various years of the course!

Lamberto tells us that he loves Scotland and is looking forward to spending the next few days exploring Aberdeen as well as visiting Edinburgh and Dundee. He has also kindly gifted us some beautiful Prada books that we look forward to reading. These are on display in the Fashion Place and really illustrate the artistic influences and ideas behind what Lamberto refers to as the Prada spirit.

Kenny Wilson – Guest Speaker

We’d like to say a huge thanks to Kenny Wilson, CEO of Cath Kidston, for giving a truly inspiring talk to our students today! 

It was really interesting learning about Kenny’s career and the internationalisation of the Cath Kidston brand – which we love. This was particularly exciting for our fourth year Fashion Management students who completed a Cath Kidston design project in their second year. 

What a fantastic start to the week!
