Window Displays

by - September 05, 2012

As a lot of you guys know, I returned to college this week (blah!) and was inspired by my Visual Merchandising class to do this post.

Prior to this, I never paid much attention to window displays and who was the brains behind the whole process but if you think about it, it's quite fascinating. For higher end stores, visual merchandisers can afford to play around a little more and let their creative noggins loose. However, if you're taking a stroll around the mall, many window displays are kept simple and usually a bit boring.

But do they do a good job of getting you to come into the store, regardless of their simplicity?

Here are a few pictures I took today for a project. Which one stands out the most to you? Can you recognize the store even without the name?








Let me know what you think down below! Have a great rest of the week :)

  6. I took a visual merchandising class last semester and I loved it! So much fun. Some of these are pretty great, Louis Vuitton especially always has awesome displays. I love that third one, but I'm kicking myself because I feel like I should be able to tell what store it is!

    1. Oh, awesome! The projects I have seem interesting but also time consuming so I'm kind of not sure how I feel about it at the moment. and yes! I love Louis Vuitton but they have the money to do cool stuff.

      hehe :)

      I'll share the answers in a few days!

  9. The windows are all gorgeous - I really like the LV one too. I have to admit I never usually stop to look at them, but they really are visually compelling! Enjoy your class. x E

  10. I returned to college too last week! I am going to post about it today! Awesome photos! I hope your school is near a mall, mine is in the middle of NOWHERE! Do you know UCONN, my fellow New Englander? And thank you for your awesome comment again Chisana. I'm sure you could pull it off lol! I find it interesting when people tell me that, it could be considered personal style, when you wear something that no one else can wear the same way. Idk! But the Louis Vuitton one really makes me want to shop!
