Magazine Project

Image

Our stage 2 BA (Hons) Fashion Management students have started work on the annual magazine project as part of their module in fashion communication.

The magazine is in its fifth year and each year the students produce something completely different from the last. As part of this project, the students will each produce a magazine cover, fashion spread, product page, article, editor’s letter and contributor profile.ย 

Last week, we had a visit from fashion photographer and lecturer at Aberdeen College, Steve Smith (http://stevewilliamsmith.com), who gave the students some interesting things to think about and inspiration for the photo shoots they’re currently planning. In order to ensure they get the best possible result from their shoots, the students are working on mood boards to help develop their concepts and convey these to their photographer and models. Most of the students will be working with photography students from Aberdeen College and Gray’s School of Art.

Another interesting aspect of the project is a blogging taskย  where students are required to set up a blog and, throughout the duration of the project, deliver at least ten posts. We look forward to sharing some of these with you in the next few weeks. The fashion magazine project has helped some of our students establish themselves as successful fashion bloggers, for example Nicola Kirkbridge who graduated in 2012 and works as a stylist in Melbourne, Australia (http://nicola-claire.blogspot.co.uk).

In a few weeks time, the students will choose a name for the magazine. And as soon as we know, you’ll know!

Colour Exhibition

Our annual colour exhibition has arrived and our first year students’ work is on display in the Aberdeen Business School atrium.

The exhibition looks great and it’s interesting to see the different ways in which our students interpret this project each year!

Fashion Magazine

Fashion Magazine

As part of our Fashion Communication module, our stage 2 Fashion Management students create and publish their own fashion magazine.

The students are responsible for all aspects of the project, from design and photography to content. A key consideration is the magazine cover and here are our covers from the last 4 years.

We can’t wait to see what the students come up with this year!
