Prints Charming

Our Spring 2014 window installation at The Fashion Institute is our second collaborative effort with our corporate sponsor TJX Canada. All of our fabulous finds were provided by: Winners, HomeSense and Marshalls. Entitled, "Prints Charming", the display is a celebration of Spring, filled with explosions of colour and playful prints.

Thirteen mannequins were adorned with a variety of printed merchandise featuring florals and a contemporary paint stroke print. Imagery included enlarged shots of actual prints from the merchandise to create works of art as a backdrop for the display. HomeSense provided thirty giant rose balls that we suspended from the ceiling creating visual interest and adding texture to the display.

Challenges included suspending twenty-six prints and thirty rose balls from the ceiling grid with fishing wire. This proved to be more than your average work out at the gym, but well worth the effort.

window display came to life.
