Research projects

It’s that time of year again and our fourth years are working hard on their Honours dissertations. As always we have a really interesting variety of research projects going on and we’re very much looking forward to reading the results!

One of our students is carrying out research into the use of fashion blogs and is looking for participants (fashion students and non fashion students from 17-30 years old) for a focus group which will take place this month in Aberdeen. If you’re interested in getting involved then please contact Suzy at s.camlin@rgu.ac.uk. Your help is much appreciated!

Brands in a day

Brands in a day

Here’s a little challenge that Dr Morag Hamilton, Course Leader for the Masters in Fashion Management, sets our students each year. Morag completed her PhD in luxury branding a few years ago and introduces the challenge as part of her fashion branding module.

Research has shown that we, as consumers, tend to be more loyal towards brands than specific retailers and most of us could relate to a number of brands we engage with on a daily basis.

These are Morag’s “brands in a day”. Only one of these is merely aspirational – I wonder if you can guess which one…

What would be your “brands in a day”?

World of Colour fashion show makes the headlines

Well done to our third years and we hope we’ll be reading more about the event in the local press in the weeks running up to the show.
