To the nines…

The ninth edition of our fashion magazine made it to the front page of tonight’s Evening Express supplement. Well done to our second (now third) year Fashion Management students – we’re so proud of you!

Next up, the tenth edition! Watch this space…

A project-based approach to teaching

We had a great time at last week’s ABS50 Research Conference where we heard some interesting presentations and keynotes. Our Fashion Place contribution was two posters showcasing examples of a project-based approach to teaching. This year’s Magazine Project and Fashion Exhibition celebrated the 50th Anniversary of Aberdeen Business School so it seemed very fitting that these should be included in the conference! Well done to all the students who made these projects a success!

Trend “life with style” awards

We’re looking forward to the annual Trend Life with Style awards this evening at Ardoe House Hotel. We’ve enjoyed the event for a number of years now, which has become a key part of the business calendar here in Aberdeen. It’s always really interesting to hear about the range of businesses that have been short-listed. The event is a glamorous affair and so, of course, we always enjoy seeing all the fabulous fashion.

Tonight we’ll be enjoying the evening at the Aberdeen Business School table with a number of guests including Ian and Kathleen Hawthorn (owners of McCalls), and Lisa McGirr (Marketing and PR Manager at John Lewis, Aberdeen). McCalls and John Lewis are hugely supportive of our Fashion Management programme, providing placements, projects and sponsoring student prizes. We’re hugely grateful for this support!

Scott Hunter and Campbell Urquhart (from Hampton Associates) will also be joining us at the event. We’ve been working with Hampton Associates for a couple of years now where they’ve provide fantastic creative and design input into our marketing, including our recent “top dog” campaign.

Here’s to an evening of style and business success!

Happy Friday!

May is always an exciting month at the Fashion Place, where we are on the countdown to our annual fashion show, a golden celebration of the fiftieth anniversary of Aberdeen Business School. We’re also eagerly awaiting the arrival of our fashion magazine which will be hot off the press in the next couple of weeks… Much excitement!

Have a lovely weekend!
