The Aberdeen Fashion Game

As an Edinburgh resident working in retail, moving to The Granite City to study fashion at university was a big change. It’s interesting to compare the different street style looks, shopping opportunities, and attitudes towards clothing here.
I thought it would be good to talk with some girls from my Fashion Management course about their personal style and thoughts about Aberdeen compared to their home towns.

Boho Vintage Concept Store

During my adventures in Prague, Czech Republic, this week, I’ve discovered so many intriguing retail treasure troves. From pokey, dark little shopfronts filled with eccentric collections of antiques to huge thrift stores full of second-hand clothes to vinyl record and book shops with bargain classics lining the walls to flagship high-street and designer giants on the main shopping street.
