It’s more than two weeks since the fashion show and (in the absence of our students) we’ve been injecting some fashion into the building (which feels very empty with our students so recently gone off for summer). Here’s our Golden Show Fiftieth Anniversary window display! After all it would be a shame to waste the beautiful paper dresses our third years made for the fashion show; these have become lovingly known as the Quality Street dresses.
We also felt that the foil birthday balloons could be used to keep the Aberdeen Business School atrium looking suitable fashionable over the summer months.
Have a fabulous summer everyone and we look forward to seeing you at the end of September!
With only three days until our Golden Show event, we’re busy transforming Aberdeen Business School into our fabulous fashion venue. The deluxe party bags are made up for our VIP guests and here’s a sneak preview of some of the hightlights from these… Huge thanks to Trend, Mackie’s and Bon Accord & St Nicholas for their support!
Last Friday the second photo-shoot for The Golden Show took place in Paramount Bar. Our three models; Gillian, Iulia and Tadiwa arrived fresh faced at lunchtime ready for good fun and hard work.
Our students styled the models in garments from Monsoon, Warehouse and Oasis in Bon Accord & St Nicholas.
The photographers were Martin Parker and Jen BirtlesKelman, who produced some amazing photos keeping with our theme of celebration. There was plenty of confetti used.
Special thanks to all of the retailers who donated, and to Paramount Bar for having us.
Lots of exciting preparation is currently taking place in the Aberdeen Business School atrium and here’s a small preview of what’s to come at tonight’s fashion exhibition… We look forward to seeing you there!
It’s March (already) and here’s our monthly throwback to this time last year when our first year fashion management students were creating commonwealth themed window displays to celebrate Glasgow 2014! This year’s theme… the fiftieth anniversary of Aberdeen Business School (of course)! Watch this space…
We’d like to wish our fashionable followers all our very best wishes for 2015!
It’s our first week back in the office (or our fashion avenue as it’s become known) and we’re gearing up for some big events in 2015! This year, Aberdeen Business School celebrates its 50th anniversary and we’ll be celebrating in style with some “fabulous at fifty” themed events!
The first, our annual Affordable Style exhibition, will be launched on Thursday the 16th of April from 6pm at Aberdeen Business School. Entry is free but guests are encouraged to make a small donation to a chosen charity (or charities) during the evening. This event brings together first year Fashion, Events Management and Public Relations students who will work in teams to organise the event and raise funds and awareness for 12 charities. The students are given £10 per team and a designated charity and they’re tasked with choosing and styling a garment for the exhibition and planning some value adding initiatives for the night of the exhibition launch. For those who can’t make it to the launch, the exhibition will remain in the atrium for two weeks. We’re very excited to see what will be showcased this year! Here are some examples from previous years.
Our second event of the year is our annual student fashion show where our third years will work together in teams to organise and manage the project from start to finish! This year’s show will take place on Friday the 29th of May and will also include fiftieth anniversary twist. Here are some photos from last year’s Northern Lights themed fashion show.
More on both of these events will be revealed soon…
Aberdeen Business School is proud to be celebrating their 50th anniversary this year! We’re celebrating with a series of events and fundraisers throughout the year in aid of the newly established ABS Achievement Fund which will help overcome disadvantage and extend opportunities for the next 50 years!
Our ABS calendar is now on sale and here’s our contribution of Fifty Fabulous Shoes! Can you guess who the legs belong to…?
