Fashion’s flirtation with supernatural style

This summer, the School of Creative and Cultural Business at RGU hosted the first of its kind Supernatural in Contemporary Society conference. This event brought together researchers from across a range of disciplines and universities who shared their research.

Subject Lead and Fashion Management course leader Karen Cross designed three spooky fashion posters for the event…

These posters showcase findings from Karen’s research into comfort in clothing where she discovered a number of supernatural themes and ideas…

Store design

  
We had a fun morning visiting Union Square and Bon Accord & St Nicholas shopping malls with our first years who are carrying out research for their store design project! 

Each year our students choose an Aberdeen-based unit on which to base a design concept for a hypothetical new fashion store. 

Watch this space for our students’ exciting window display designs which we’ll share in April; these will be based on a Rio theme in celebration of the upcoming Olympic Games! 

Happy 29th of February

Happy 29th of February everyone!

Although you’re all far too busy to contemplate the opportunity to propose today, we thought you might like to know the fashion implications of a leap year… Just in case the mood takes you, make sure you are properly attired. Women should wear breeches or a scarlet petticoat to pop the question today and our Danish friends can look forward to receiving 12 pairs of gloves if the gentleman refuses her advances, while in Finland, she will receive enough fabric for a skirt.

We hope this information has lightened your day and, if you’re working in retail, may you sell many red petticoats!

Thanks to Hannah for sharing this fabulous photo from London!

ABS 50 Christmas party 

 
We had a fabulous time at our ABS50 Christmas party on Friday night! 

This all staff celebration was the culmination of a suite of events themed around the 50th anniversary of Aberdeen Business School; these included our very own fashion exhibition in April and fashion show in May!

We had a fantastic evening at the Trend Life with Style awards and would like to thank Trend for hosting such a brilliant event!

The food and entertainment were fantastic and there were some great raffle prizes which some of the guests from our table even won! Sadly we didn’t win the Finnies jewellery raffle (but at least we have some left over macarons to numb the pain…)

A huge congratulations to all the prize winners! We’re already looking forward to next year’s event!
