A fabulous example of marketing which reminded us to remind our fourth years (again) to complete the National Student Survey!
We’d like to wish Trend Aberdeen a very happy birthday!
The latest issue celebrates the sixth anniversary of Aberdeen’s fashion and lifestyle magazine and we are very proud to be represented in this fabulous pre-Christmas edition; with our very own Morven MacSween (stage 3 Fashion Management) gracing the cover – in honour of her appearance in the very first edition, when she was only 15 – and testimonials from our fashion management staff (Karen and Madeleine) .
Trend have been very supportive of our Fashion Management programme – the BA (Hons) Fashion Management is also 6 years old! – where they offer an exciting placement opportunity to our third years and we are very pleased to sponsor a prize at the Trend Awards each year!
Gray’s School of Art is one of Scotland’s four art schools and an integral part of Robert Gordon University (RGU) in Aberdeen. The School portfolio covers a wide range of specialist subjects found within the breadth of Design and Fine Art disciplines. It is home to a range of individuals including practicing artists, designers and researchers of national and international standing.
Aberdeen Business School’s very own Dorothy Giles is teaching an evening class in kiltmaking this year. The course is aimed at students with an existing knowledge of hand sewing techniques and offers a unique opportunity to learn this traditional craft.
Our World of Colour fashion show has been and gone and was a huge success! Our stage 3 Fashion Management students raised a grand total of £8,826 for MND Scotland! Here’s a short documentary which the students put together and showed on the night. Lots of photos to follow!
With only one week until our World of Colour fashion show, organisation is under way and our students have been working on their decorations for the show. These include handmade city scapes, paper dresses and a giant World of Colour logo collage.
The last of our fundraising activities will take place tomorrow night, where the students are participating in a fancy dress pub crawl of Aberdeen; all funds raised will go to MND Scotland (www.mndscotland.org.uk).
We’ve sold out of VIP tickets but there are still standard tickets available and you can buy yours today by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org. Our standard ticket includes a complementary goody bag, cocktail and full access to our retail experience on the night.
We’re looking forward to a busy week of fashion show preparation!
With less than 3 weeks until the World of Colour fashion show, our students are busy fundraising for MND Scotland. Last week the students took part in a sponsored cycle at RGU: Sport where they raised £180 and cycled 180 miles – £1 per mile (which could take them from Milan to Venice)!
Yesterday the students raised over £230 selling vintage treasures at a car boot sale in Errol!
Watch out for them in Aberdeen’s Bon Accord & St Nicholas this weekend, where they’ll be in the centre all day Saturday – running competitions, painting faces and selling tickets for the World of Colour fashion show!
With only four weeks until the show, the World of Colour countdown is on!
Our (student designed) tickets are here and you can email email@example.com to get yours today.
The show starts at 7pm and will take place in the atrium of Aberdeen Business School. We’ll be showcasing the latest fashions from the Aberdeen Bon Accord & St Nicholas Centre (so guests on the night can “see it today and buy it tomorrow”).
The show will feature walks which represent the world’s fashion capitals (London, Paris, Milan, New York and Tokyo) and there will be “between walk” entertainment.
We’re hosting a raffle on the night (with some fabulous prizes to be won) and a “fashion avenue” retail experience where a number of boutiques will be selling a range of products – from accessories to sweeties.
As a World of Colour guest, you will receive a welcome drink upon arrival and there will be great food and cocktails which are available throughout the evening. You’ll also get a World of Colour goody bag to take home.
All proceeds from the show will go to MND Scotland and we’ll announce the grand total of funds raised at the end of the night.
We hope to see you there!
Our third years have spent this morning designing paper dresses for a World of Colour window display at the Fashion Place.
The dresses represent the world’s fashion capitals (London, Paris, Milan, New York and Tokyo) and we also have two special dresses which the students designed – one for MND Scotland and another to represent the world of colour logo and theme overall.
Can you match the paper dresses to their fashion capitals?
In the run up to our World of Colour fashion show, our third years are organising a range of fundraising events – with all funds going to MND Scotland (http://www.mndscotland.org.uk)
This is the last official week of term at Aberdeen Business School so the students have some exciting events planned…
On Wednesday, there’s an Acoustic Night at Bar Below (on Aberdeen’s Belmont Street) and another fashion management bake sale on campus (we’re expecting lots more “slutty brownies” and cupcakes). On Thursday, the students will host a pub quiz at the RGU Union (with a special fashion round).
Another event which we’re particularly looking forward to is the “fashion night in” which will (of course) be hosted in the Fashion Place. The students have a Paris themed night planned which will include DVDs, cupcakes, mocktails, nail painting and hair styling. We hope to see all our fashionistas there! There will (of course) be lots of photos to follow…
