Dressing Christmas Windows at Scamp & Dude Stores

What a brilliant couple of months leading up to the festive season this year! I have been very grateful to have had the opportunity to work with inspiring retailers and brands to install their Christmas Windows and Visual Merchandising.

I loved working with my longtime friend and fellow Visual Merchandiser, Frankie Rossetti to assist with installing the Christmas windows and in store Visual Merchandising for Scamp & Dude, for both their Marlow and Battersea London Stores. The Christmas display scheme comprised of snow ball garlands, neon baubles in the brands iconic colours and hat boxes wrapped with neon ribbon. The snow ball garlands and baubles were hung within the window, framing the mannequin groupings below, we hung these in a variety of heights to create 3D depth to the window space. Mannequins were styled in the Christmas party wear collection, which featured lots of sparkle and sequins !

Autumn Window Dressing at Elenique Skin Clinic London

Autumn Window Dressing at Elenique Skin Clinic London

The new season has started with my window and in store installations to celebrate Autumn at Elenique Skin Clinic in Fulham, London.

For the window installation we have re purposed the wooden arch which we have used in past campaigns but this time used Autumn textures including ; dried wheat, natural raffia, natural pampas and golden leaf garlands. These textures have helped to create our chosen theme of ” Golden Harvest” This theme was an important one for the clinic owner, Elena as this pays tribute to her home country of Ukraine.
