Final Year students from the EVENTS and DISPLAY teams worked hard to create a festive soiree tonight for all the FMM students across year groups in the WSA cafe. Mulled wine (smelt amazing) and Prosecco flowed for the lucky students who turned up to support, and one lucky winner won a box of chocolates and a bottle of fizz in the raffle. Well done to all those who helped and those that supported this lovely xmas event. Everyone left feeling a little bit more 'xmasy' than when they arrived!
Level 2 Fashion Management Students had a great trip out visiting key exhibitions in London including OPERA: Power, Passion & Politics at the V&A, and Balanciaga. Opera was a truely brilliant exhibition, as ever at the V&A, and a huge insight into the history, social and cultural context of OPERA. The day was a mix of opulence, glamour and a taste of couture fashion but then a trip over to to East London and the Barbican gave a contrast into the artworld of New York in the 80s at the Basquiat exhibition. One student spotted Stella McCartney and Cara Delevingne passed in the nite! An exciting time and fully booked so we were lucky to see it at the glamourous launch. All this valuable research feeds into the Product Management Module where students are asked to create new opportunities in product, analysing trends in Denim, Wearable Tech and the Sportswear Industries. Back to the office now where we are working hard on Buying and Merchandising skills to support in their ideas development.
Fantastic launch of FEAST MAGAZINE, The Millennial Edition. We are already working on the next one, follow @thefeastmag for more information or enquiries. FEAST is an in-house magazine project led by the programme leader and a student managing editor. The magazine project allows students to develop and refine skills in editorial writing, art direction, styling, graphic design, marketing and creative branding and sits outside the core timetable to allow easy access for everyone wanting to be involved.
A bouyant start to Level 1 and we warmly welcome our Freshers into Winchester School of Art on the Fashion Marketing and Management Programme. Although they are busy moving in, meeting new friends and finding a supermarket (the priority) we have set them a task to get creating from day one. Students were asked to get into groups, and go out and capture 'street style' images thinking about whats trending in fashion, the model, the location, & most importantly now, 'the post'. Theres a prize at stake for the winning group which will announced today. We hope to find the next Tommy Ton amongst our group but the standard is set high already.
