Over the past week our first year and masters students have been working on their colour inspired mood boards. These are currently on display as an exhibition in the atrium of the School of Creative and Cultural Business.
The students produce these each year as part of their Fashion Design Concepts module. It’s really interesting to see how the students interpret the task differently each year, reflecting on changing trends and influences.
With the new semester starting next week, we’d like to welcome all our new and continuing Fashion Management students! It was lovely to meet our new first years (and what will be our 10th Fashion Management cohort – but more on that later!) at their induction session yesterday…
Today our first year Fashion Management, Events Management and Public Relations students launched their Fashion Exhibition: a Celebration of Creativity and Culture. There were so many highlights that we don’t quite know where to begin…
We’re looking forward to sharing more photos of the full exhibition spaces soon but here’s a sneak peak at some of the charity shop garments and from today’s launch event!
The stands looked great and were all really different and exciting in their own way! From balloon animals to tarot card readings, there were lots of interesting ideas for audience engagement.
There was even some handmade bunting which will be donated to Sue Ryder Care after the exhibition!
Tomorrow our students have their exhibition debrief where we’ll discuss our successes and identify areas for improvement.
Overall, we’d like to congratulate our students on a wonderfully styled and creative event! Although we don’t yet have a final total, we’re delighted to have raised over £200 between the charities represented.
Our first years have been busy creating repeat patterns as part of their Fashion Construction and Technology module! We love these examples.
We’re pleased to see that cult classic 90’s television is still enjoyed by our first year students – some of whom were only born at the end of the millennium! Next week’s fashion exhibition promises both Friends and Clueless themed showcases and if you drop by the Clueless stand and make a small donation to the PDSA you’ll be able to grab a cake and some Juicy Fruit gum.
It was lovely to welcome this familiar face back to RGU this morning!
Julie Brander graduated in our first BA (Hons) Fashion Management cohort and, since then, has enjoyed an exciting and successful career in the Scottish Communications sector as an Account Manager with Weber Shandwick. Julie has very kindly come along to talk to a number of our student cohorts about her career and some of the opportunities that exist for our hard working and creative students!
Thank you for a very inspiring talk Julie!
Who doesn’t love candy floss and a touch of pink? That’s what one of our student groups thought when they chose a candy striped shirt from Aberdeen’s Cancer Research shop! Styled with a denim skirt, the Cotton Candies plan to theme their fashion showcase around a traditional British carnival – inspired by the hit musical and movie Grease.
We look forward to seeing this colourful, feel-good fun brought to life at the exhibition launch on the 12th of April! We’re guessing there will be sweeties involved…
