S.T.A.G : White Junk Fashion Pop Up
Fashion is an enormous global industry now estimated to be worth around £21 billion pounds a year to the UK economy, yet it’s notoriously difficult to break into.
That’s where collectives like S.T.A.G. (Scottish Talent and Graduates) come in, giving hard working and talented young people support. Based in Aberdeen, S.T.A.G was set up by two fourth year fashion students from Gray’s School of Art, Emma Noble and Toni Roddie, who aim to offer all designers (from those starting out to the already established) from the Aberdeen area and beyond a unique chance to connect with others working either in or towards a career in the industry. This networking aims to build collaborations through fashion shoots, shows and unique fashion events.
The White Junk Fashion Pop Up is their second pop up event and will take place on Saturday 12 November at The Korova Klub. The event will showcase the work of up and coming fashion design talent such as Laura Sherriffs, Heather Grant and Tracey Bruce, pieces from local jewellery designers including Kelly McAllister, along with gift wear and pieces from local vintage boutiques.
Additionally, there will be delicious treats from Hannah Bakes Cakes and a bespoke cocktail that S.T.A.G. have created for the event. So as well as looking at beautiful handmade work, you can even enjoy a drink and a cupcake or two!
We have some incredible talent here in Scotland, talent we should be proud of and wholeheartedly support.
