A group of Aberdeen students have created a range of fashion styles that showcase the north-east’s energy industry.
The fashion management students from the Robert Gordon University (RGU) were challenged with putting together a short film as part of their third year project on the theme of Northern Culture.
The young fashionistas were inspired by the north-east’s oil and gas industry, as well as green energy resources such as wind, solar and water.
Shot in studios and on location in various settings around Aberdeen, the film is the first time students at the university have been asked to create something other than a catwalk.
Nichola Strachan, fashion management lecturer at RGU, said: “This is the first time the fashion management students have been tasked with creating a film rather than a real life fashion catwalk.
“This has given the students the opportunity to throw themselves into the media and more digital aspects of the creative industry.”
From billowing gowns representing wind power, to futuristic reflective dresses illustrating the power of the sun, the students created a kaleidoscope of imagery.
Student Courtney Williams, the creative director for the project, said: “The idea behind such a creative direction within the film rather than a catwalk is to campaign the influence of oil and gas within the northern landscape and also highlight the talent that Aberdeen and surrounding areas have to showcase.
“The digital aspect of this project has really inspired me and is a great experience for our course and future job prospects.”
The film will be launched on Thursday at RGU’s business school at Garthdee at 6.30pm. The event will also include an exhibition and presentation from the students.
