Calling North East fashion bloggers

I’m looking for fashion bloggers from the North East of Scotland who’d be interested in being interviewed for my current research project into blogger identity and motivation. This is an opportunity to get involved in an exciting piece of research into an area that’s of increasing importance in fashion communication today! Interviews will, ideally, take place in Aberdeen during the next four to six weeks and should take no more than an hour. These will be very informal, lasting around one hour, and can be done over coffee. All responses will be entirely confidential and you and your blog will not be named at any point during the research. If you’re interested in being involved then please get in touch via email at m.marcella1@rgu.ac.uk. I’m also looking for some suggestions of fashion bloggers who I could contact and please do feel free to share this request with anyone you think might be interested. Where a face-to-face interview might not be suitable for participants, I would be happy to arrange a telephone or Skype call. Many thanks!

Fashionable fundraising and research update

ABS Fashion Show 2015_495-(ZF-10155-80377-1-019)

It’s been a busy few months at the Fashion Place with two of our annual student events taking place in Spring! Over the past few months, the students have been working hard to plan their events in celebration of Aberdeen Business School’s fiftieth anniversary. Our fashion exhibition, in April, was a huge success where our students raised around £400 for a range of local charities. The students planned lots of value adding additions for their launch event, including the pink lemonade tower (pictured below).

Our Golden Show fashion event took place on the 29th of May and the students completely transformed the atrium of Aberdeen Business School, using crepe pompoms, paper dresses, balloons and confetti. We got some fantastic feedback from guests and successfully raised £4737 for Down’s Syndrome Scotland. We’re very grateful to all the sponsors who helped make the night a success!

It’s always sad to see the students leave for summer, the campus is so quiet without them. The fashion show is a lovely send off though and the perfect way to end the semester. I’m so passionate about this event, having been part of the very first student cohort who organised it (back in 2008).

Now the focus is very much back on my research projects and I’m delighted to have conducted my first fashion blogger interview today – I can already see that there will be lots of interesting and thought provoking data that emerge from these! More on that soon…
