London Fashion Weekend

Mulberry

Happy Monday!

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!

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”?
