Edinburgh University newsletter criticised over fashion advice

Students at Edinburgh University have criticised an article on designer fashion tips in the university newsletter that recommended, among other things, a £2,395 Alexander McQueen clutch bag.

The university has apologised for the article, headlined “Add a degree of fashion to your graduation day”, which featured suggestions from the luxury department store Harvey Nichols. cheap prom dressesStudents said the article, which has been taken down, promoted sexist stereotypes and would alienate less well-off students.girls party dresses

“Girls, this is your time to invest in some sophisticated glamour,” the article read. “Think French chic meets New York business and you’ll get it right.

“A little black dress from a brand like Carven or Iro would be spot on, and go for killer accessories: Gianvito Rossi heels and a clutch with personality to store your lippy and smartphone. Remember, image is everything!”

Writing in the Edinburgh Tab student newspaper, Laura Williamson said the article played up to the stereotype that the university’s students were mainly posh and from private schools.

“The recommendation from the university – a body designed to create meritocracy in an inherently unequal world – to spend that amount of money on clothing for one day is nothing but classism, with a hint of sexism for good measure,” she said, adding that the piece excluded 99% of the student body.

“‘Remember, image is everything!’ says one thing alone: forget the hard work you’ve done in those four years to gain your degree, forget the congratulations for graduating; how you look means everything, and thus if you’re not investing in some ‘sophisticated glamour’ you are nothing,” she continued.

“The university has sent a poisonous message instead of what they ought to have sent: wear whatever you feel comfortable in and whatever you can afford.”

Other students and observers complained on Twitter about the message the article had sent.
