We had a fantastic time in London last week (a little sad it’s all over – until next year anyway). Here are some photos of the Thea Porter exhibit at the Fashion and Textile Museum in London, showcasing topical 70’s style.
This is an exciting week at the Fashion Place because tomorrow we’re setting off bright and early to London Fashion Weekend, with our second year and Masters students!
We’ve been watching the coverage all weekend and are especially enjoying Mulberry’s new designs (we’ve fallen in love with their Roxette in Rose Petal Shearling) and those of Preen by Thornton Bregazzi!
We’re particularly looking forward to the Guy Bourdin photography exhibition at Somerset House. Watch this space for highlights from our trip!

We’d like to say a huge thank you to James Storrie, Operations Manager at John Lewis Aberdeen, for providing a really interesting guest lecture for our students today!
Today is the launch of our annual “Charity Chic” fashion exhibition project!
Our Fashion Management, Event Management and Public Relations students will be split into 12 teams and assigned a charity. Their task is to source an outfit from their designated charity shop and design an exhibition space to showcase their garment, promote the charity, and which ties in with the overarching theme of Aberdeen Business School’s 50th anniversary celebrations! The students will work together to plan a creative launch night event to take place on Thursday the 16th of April and the exhibition will run for two weeks from this point.
We can’t wait to see what they come up with!
Good luck to our third year students who start their placements on Monday! Have fun and keep in touch. We can’t wait to hear all about your experiences (and read your placement reports!)
Earlier this week our fourth year Events Management students were taken on a trip to London and visited some famous British venues, including Wimbledon. There they found this fabulous window display and learned about the changing trends in tennis uniform (amongst other things)! What do you think of the Wimbledon chic?
