December flashback

AnnusMoris Dec

Happy Friday to all our fashionable followers!

Here’s a flashback to this time last year at the Fashion Place! Today we’re at the Clothes Show Live with our first years!

Our fourth years are preparing to hand in work for this year’s fashion project! Last year students were tasked to shoot a look book for the Burberry trench and this year have been given a collection of items from McCalls Aberdeen. We’re looking forward to seeing the results!

Have a fabulously fashionable weekend!

Cath Kidston review for 2nd year project

Great success for last year’s second year students who put together beautiful design concepts for the #CathKidston brand.

We sent a selection of their projects to Cath Kidston’s head office and have received excellent feedback from Sarah Richards, executive assistant to Kenny Wilson (CEO) and Paul Mason (Chairman). She writes,

“Kenny, Cath and the design team enjoyed reading through the projects.  A couple of your students are very in tune with the retail market…”

She goes on to tell us about the product launches for next season and which of our students made accurate predictions but we don’t want to give the game away!


Cover Up!

We are excited to be welcoming a new group of first years into the BA (Hons) Fashion Management course in a few weeks as the ‘newbies’! Current first years, however, can look forward to progressing to their second year with the much anticipated Fashion Communication module to produce the annual Stage 2 Fashion Management Magazine. Thoughts are already on what will be the next front cover…

For inspiration, we’ve found a creative cover from a recent Marie Claire edition with their ‘zipper’ front cover…




We’re excited to see what the students will come up with this year!




The 5th Edition Student Magazine

The 5th Edition Student Magazine

We can unveil the cover of this years student magazine, The 5th Edition, which is produced every year as part of the Fashion Communication module. After a great deal of hard work from the 2nd year students and lecturer Fiona, who put the magazine together, the magazine has now been published in full glossy print.

Just for you, we also have an e-magazine, have a read using this link:

Northern Lights

Northern Lights

The Northern Lights fashion show was a huge success thanks to the dedication and professionalism of the third year students who took part. An incredible total was raised for Mrs Murray’s Cat and Dog Home and an enjoyable evening was had by all. Highlights of the night included our very own ‘selfie’ photo-booth and our token canine models, Winston and Lily.

Thank you to everyone who was involved!

Fundraising with Fergus

Fundraising with Fergus

The Fashion Management third years have been hard at work these past couple of weeks raising funds for Mrs Murrays Cat & Dog Home, the charity benefiting from the annual fashion show, Northern Lights. The fundraising activities has been a variety of bake sales, sponsored walk, car boot sale and face painting in Bon Accord centre and have so far raised a whopping £1,227.18! Here are a few snaps of the students during their fundraising events.

First year Fashion Exhibition

First year Fashion, Event and Public Relation students held their annual Fashion Exhibition, this year inspired by the spirit of Scotland. With a small budget, teams of students purchased, styled and exhibited an outfit compiled of charity shop finds with the aim of creating awareness for the shop’s charity where the garment was purchased. An excellent turn out of friends, family and fashion followers gathered to see the students’ work in Aberdeen Business School. However, it is safe to say that four-legged model, Bailey, stole the show!
