Styles of the Studious: Madupe, Anna & Sophie

Throughout the last few weeks I have been traipsing the hallways, scouring the buildings and perusing cafeterias, trying to track down the stylish scholars of Robert Gordon University.

I was successful, but not before experiencing some rejection as I tentatively approached a number of potential subjects. The phrase “Sorry I’m going to a class” was a favourite as they bolted in the opposite direction. Or a shake of the head accompanied by a nervous smile and slow retreat. I finally managed to pin down and convince three style conscious students to; stop, let me take their picture and talk to me about their fashion do’s, don’ts and words of wisdom. My favourite of which would have to be “Just never wear Uggs!”, because, it is excellent advice! The three girls I “interviewed” all had varying takes on fashion and what style meant to them. This was illustrated through the unique and distinct way each of them fashioned their outfits.
