ABOUT SOLENT FASHION DAY '14
Southampton Solent University's Fashion Management with Marketing students bring you an array of exciting events centred around the world of fashion.
As part of Solent Fashion Day '14, a B2B fashion conference is due to take place at Grand Cafe in Southampton on Thursday 3rd April 2014. We have an exciting line up of influential industry experts who will provide their expertise on how to grow and succeed within the current fashion industry. We aim to create an environment and atmosphere where businesses can meet, interact and network with one another.
In addition, an exhilarating fashion runway show will be held on the same day in the evening at Grand Cafe's prestigious venue Club 4, where we will be showcasing designs from Southampton's very own independents, up and coming fresh designers as well as clothing from local fashion retailers.
In accordance with Solent Fashion Day '14, we also have Aspire and our Visual Merchandising Workshops alongside the major events.
Our overall goal is to bring the fashion industry closer to both students and business people, situated in and around the Southampton area.
As project manager, I am in charge of overlooking the live projects that are part of the final year BA(Hons) Fashion Management with Marketing degree course. My role requires me to ensure all live project outcomes are successful and in line with the set goals. I am also responsible for maintaining communication between the project team members, the course leaders as well as the programme leader. In addition, I am coordinating the course's End of Year Exhibition Show whereby 3rd year students showcase their final outcomes within a gallery environment. After my degree, I hope to pursue a career in marketing.
