New Season Window Dressing London

New Season Window Dressing London

Fantastic feeling this month to be back designing and installing this fab new season window and instore display for our new client, Wed2B. This concept was installed in their Baker Street store in London. Taking inspiration from the current pampas grass trend which is very heavy featured on platforms such as Instagram and Pinterest.

Re-Opening Window Display For Tower Bridge London

Re-Opening Window Display For Tower Bridge London

It was so good to be working with the retail team at Tower Bridge again this month now they are fully re-open !
I worked together with the Tower Bridge Retail team to remove all the previous Spring displays and replacing these with fresh Summer installations.
They have just launched their second children’s book , The Tower Bridge Cat and the Baby Whale 🐳 so this became our main focus in the windows.
It was so good to see smiles from some of the children passing by as I was dressing this installation !

Top Visual Merchandising Tips For Retailers Post Covid-19

Top Visual Merchandising Tips For Retailers Post Covid-19

During this time of most retailers now starting to re-open I thought it would be useful to detail some key Visual Merchandising tips to assist retailers post Covid 19 ;

1. Make an impact within your window displays to really welcome your customers back to your store ! Your window displays are one of your stores/ brands biggest advertising spaces – so create a scheme which reflects your brand image and will appeal to your customers.
2. Ideas for window display installations could also follow trends for celebrating and conservation of our planet ! Great inspiration can be taken from brand’s like Selfridges with their ” Project Earth and Thank you” concepts.
3. Consider creating interaction within your window and use QR codes so that customers can interact with you virtually via their smart phones.

I have been working with Elena who owns Elenique Skin Clinic in Fulham London for almost four years now. My consultancy with Elena started prior to her opening her new business premises in 2016 with Visual Merchandising training. 

I now work with Elena to create her window and in store displays three times per year and March prior to lock-down saw us creating beautiful Spring displays – which are my favorite installation to date ! We created some beautiful cherry blossom trees which created the height needed in Elena’s windows and promoted the fabulous skin care range, Intraceuticals which is a brand Elena uses during her treatments.
