Impromptu photoshoot

What better way to start the week than with an impromptu photoshoot? Here’s a behind the scenes glimpse of our fabulous first years bringing some serious Hollywood glamour to the studio for their window display project!

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! 

Clare Richardson – Guest Speaker

Thanks to Clare Richardson, Operations Manager at John Lewis Aberdeen, for a fantastic guest lecture today. Clare spoke to our first year and MSc Fashion Management students this afternoon as part of their respective Fashion Retail and Fashion Business modules. This was an excellent opportunity for the students to gain insight into a dynamic and successful British fashion retailer with a really interesting history. It also helped contextualise a lot of the theory that we teach during the course in a real life case study example.

We’re hugely grateful for the support John Lewis provide for our Fashion Management programme, employing a number of our students part-time, providing placement opportunities and contributing to our annual student fashion show.

An excellent end to the semester!
