Take Pride

This window display entitled "Take Pride" was created in anticipation of the annual "PRIDE" parade and to visually represent our commitment to celebrating diversity within the college community and the world at large. We were thrilled to feature a student model, Kayla Bustard, Fashion Arts Diploma program and Eden, Elmer Olsen Model Management within the window imagery.

A series of same sex mannequins are sporting trendy black and white graphic looks with pops of the famous rainbow PRIDE flag colours to accessorize their outfits. A black and white checkered abstract environment was created by stapling paper squares to large sheets of foam core panels creating visual interest by using repetition and contrast as our primary attention getting devices.

Managing the movement of fourteen mannequins in a confined space was the biggest challenge we faced creating this display.
