Colour exhibition

colour1

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.

 

Welcome!

10th Cohort

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…

 

Repeat patterns

pattern making

Our first years have been busy creating repeat patterns as part of their Fashion Construction and Technology module! We love these examples.

Guest Speaker: Julie Brander

JulieB

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!

The Cotton Candies

Group 1 Cotton Candies

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…

It’s (almost) showtime for our fashion exhibition…

Beetlejuice3

We’re pleased to reveal another exciting theme from our upcoming Fashion Exhibition: a Celebration of Creativity and Culture… One of our student teams headed to Aberdeenshire’s Haddo House to stage a Beetlejuice themed photoshoot featuring two of the students (first year Fashion Management) as models (don’t they look great?!) and their garment – sourced from Aberdeen’s Shelter charity shop.

Beetlejuice2

The team are hoping to raise awareness of Shelter’s mission to help the homeless through a creative showcase, inspired by the 1988 cult classic movie Beetlejuice and its links to fashion trends.

“Fam fatale”: A celebration of 1920’s fashion and style

Team 4 Great Gatsby

We’re pleased to reveal another theme from this year’s fashion exhibition… “fam fatale”! This particular showcase promotes Oxfam, whose international work on women’s rights has inspired the students to host a Great Gatsby themed exhibition, tipping their Trilby hats to  celebrate 1920’s fashion and style.
