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.
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.
Our Masters students are around mid-way through their placements and here’s a visual update from Jessica, who’s working at Pandora Germany for the next three months, and Sarah, who’s on placement at German cashmere label Henry Christ.
We love Pandora‘s branding, which is strongly influenced by both its Danish roots and Thai designs. From these photos, it’s clear to see that this translates not only to the jewellery, packaging, and retail spaces, but also to their office environment.
The brand Henry Christ is also a very interesting one, where the founders and designers were part of the German TV production, Fashion Hero. Today, only five years after the foundation of the company, their products are available in 17 countries worldwide! Like Pandora, their strong visual identity is evident in the pictures above where their logo, garments, retail and office space are shown.
Tomorrow we’ll be setting up the first year fashion exhibition for our launch event at 6pm! Hope you can make it along to what is set to be a fantastic event! This poster provides another sneak peak at what’s to come…
We’re on the countdown to our Fabulous at Fifty fashion exhibition launch on Thursday the 16th of April. Here’s a preview of what’s to come from one of the groups who will be supporting Barnardo’s with a Sound of Music themed exhibition! The event is open to everyone and free of charge so please drop by between 6-8pm to see the showcase.
It’s that time of year again and our fourth years are working hard on their Honours dissertations. As always we have a really interesting variety of research projects going on and we’re very much looking forward to reading the results!
One of our students is carrying out research into the use of fashion blogs and is looking for participants (fashion students and non fashion students from 17-30 years old) for a focus group which will take place this month in Aberdeen. If you’re interested in getting involved then please contact Suzy at firstname.lastname@example.org. Your help is much appreciated!
