Today our first year Fashion Management, Events Management and Public Relations students launched their Fashion Exhibition: a Celebration of Creativity and Culture. There were so many highlights that we don’t quite know where to begin…

We’re looking forward to sharing more photos of the full exhibition spaces soon but here’s a sneak peak at some of the charity shop garments and from today’s launch event!

The stands looked great and were all really different and exciting in their own way! From balloon animals to tarot card readings, there were lots of interesting ideas for audience engagement.

There was even some handmade bunting which will be donated to Sue Ryder Care after the exhibition!

Tomorrow our students have their exhibition debrief where we’ll discuss our successes and identify areas for improvement.

Overall, we’d like to congratulate our students on a wonderfully styled and creative event! Although we don’t yet have a final total, we’re delighted to have raised over £200 between the charities represented.

Repeat patterns

Our first years have been busy creating repeat patterns as part of their Fashion Construction and Technology module! We love these examples.

We’re pleased to reveal another theme from this year’s fashion exhibition… “fam fatale”! This particular showcase promotes Oxfam, whose international work on women’s rights has inspired the students to host a Great Gatsby themed exhibition, tipping their Trilby hats to  celebrate 1920’s fashion and style.

For the second year running, one of our students is doing her placement in New York! Third Year BA (Hons) Fashion Management student Nikola is making the most of her time in the Big Apple by attending some of the shows for New York Fashion Week.

We love this shot from the Mister Triple X show – and what a venue!

Fashion exhibition project launch

Today we launched our annual fashion exhibition with first year Fashion Management, Event Management and Public Relations students! Students were split into ten teams and given ten pounds to be spent in an allocated Aberdeen-based charity shop.  The project will run for the next ten weeks where students will plan and organise a fashion exhibition to be held on Wednesday the 12th of April.

In celebration of our newly formed School of Creative and Cultural Business, the students have been asked to choose a cultural artefact and this will form the inspiration behind their exhibition space. We’re so excited to see what the different teams come up with!

More on this to follow where we look forward to sharing the students’ garment choices and plans for the exhibition…

Congratulations to the Class of 2016


Today we watched our fabulous fourth years graduate and we’d like to wish them all the very best for the future! It’s always a bit sad to say goodbye to our students when they reach the end of the course but we look forward to seeing what exciting opportunities lie ahead. Keep in touch everyone and enjoy your celebrations!
