Jill Frost

The Business School selected "Jill Frost" as the winning window treatment for Winter 2012. Students and graduate students worked diligently to bring the window to life by creating an icy pink frosted winter wonderland with a non traditional pastel pink colour story to mimic the student photography which featured a fashionably dressed frosted figure peering through ice covered branches in an enchanted forest setting.

Challenges faced included: "Jill Frost" was truly the most challenging window display that we have executed to date. Creating a 55 ft. wall of crinkled pink transparent cellophane proved to be very challenging. Drooping cellophane bunches stood up into place once we figured out that gravity could work for us. Adding a balloon weight to the bottom of 35 separate pieces of vertical fishing line created the perfect positioning for the cellophane bunches and made the wall more manageable. Spray ice was used on the actual window to simulate frost. Mannequins were positioned to look like they were scraping their way out of the window with blinged out ice scrapers. Chipping away the frosted film was harder than we imagined and provided hours of entertainment. Suspending 200 branches and 70 mirrors required more ladders than we had access to which slowed us down a little. Students were inspired by one of their favourite retailers "Fashion Crimes" who are known for creating elaborate up do's made of tulle and interesting props. Creating an icy pink frosted winter wonderland was the ultimate challenge.
