Happy New Year

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…

Happy New Year

Happy New Year

It’s our first day back on Fashion Avenue after the Christmas break and we’d like to wish our followers a Happy New Year!

Here’s a little flashback to January 2013 at the Fashion Place. We very much look forward to welcoming our students back later this month!

The fifth edition

We’re pleased to announce that, in celebration of reaching a magazine project milestone, we will be naming this year’s issue…

The Fifth Edition

Our students have spent the past week brainstorming ideas and, having narrowed these down to a small range of suggestions, were voting for their favourite over the weekend.

It was felt that the number five just couldn’t be overlooked, particularly with its various fashion related connotations, from Chanel No. 5 to New York’s Fifth Avenue. There are also a number of other interesting references that can be drawn, including five star, the famous five, high five, etc.

Now that the name has been chosen, we’re so excited to see what this year’s cover will look like!

Four weeks…

It’s only four weeks until we welcome new and existing fashion management students to the University for induction week!

It’s been an eventful summer at Aberdeen Business School, where work on our campus masterplan development has been in full swing and we’ve seen many changes including the relocation of our library to its new state-of-the-art tower, which boasts stunning riverside views. We’re also pleased to finally welcome ABS staff, from all five departments, who will be brought together under the same roof in our new office development.

For our fabulous students, we are excited to present a number of new facilities for them to enjoy, including a learning hub, conference suite, placement and study abroad office, and new catering facilities.

Roll on induction week – we’ve really missed our students!
