Fantastic news

Both last year’s Stage 2 Fashion Management magazine – The 5th Edition – and this Friday’s fashion show – The Golden Show – feature in the Diary of the Press and Journal’s YL magazine.

By the looks of the front cover, we’re in good company – Mr Clooney!

Thanks to Johnsons of Elgin

Johnsons Scarf

Another huge thank you to Johnsons of Elgin for donating this beautiful cashmere scarf to our Golden Show raffle. Yet another prize that we would be very delighted to win! Johnsons of Elgin is a brand with such a fascinating story and they’ve shown huge support towards our Fashion Management students by providing placements, donating prizes to events and giving guest lectures!

Thanks to Mackie’s of Scotland

Mackies Chocolate

Thanks to Mackie’s of Scotland for providing some of their tasty new chocolate bars for our Golden Show VIP guests. As part of their “everyday indulgence” range, you can choose from mint, honeycomb, dark and traditional milk chocolate, which reflects some of their more traditional ice cream flavours.

Hitting the Pubs for Charity!

Last week was our Golden Show pub crawl! The students headed around pubs in Aberdeen city centre with their charity buckets, handing out free sweets and trying to raise as much money as possible for Down’s Syndrome Scotland.

Thanks to Triple Kirks, Siberia, Slains, the Monkey House and Paramount Bar for their support. We had a great time and raised £122 for an amazing cause!

Happy Friday!

May is always an exciting month at the Fashion Place, where we are on the countdown to our annual fashion show, a golden celebration of the fiftieth anniversary of Aberdeen Business School. We’re also eagerly awaiting the arrival of our fashion magazine which will be hot off the press in the next couple of weeks… Much excitement!
