Preloved ladies wear shop

Mediterranean shop window

 

 

Pre-loved or pre-owned fashion shops are springing up all over the place at the moment. We recycle our rubbish so why not recycle our clothes.

We were given a brief to install a window   with a Mediterranean theme.

Mediterranean blue shutters were installed in the window together with a wooden slatted table and 2 chairs. To bring some further colour to the window we arranged some coloured glassware on the table, wine bottles together with some lovely green apples and vibrant lemons.

White wooden coat hangers were fixed in three different positions suspended from the ceiling with galvanised wire. The wire enabled the coat hanger to remain in position and not to swing round and this helped the client to change the outfits in the window easily.

Chairs are a great prop to use as it’s fairly easy to fold and drape items on them. We added an accessory group on the table and with the addition of a hat the look was completed.

Fashion installation

We dressed a ladies fashion window today for one of our long standing clients of over 12 years.IMG_6911

It’s a difficult window to dress as the building is very old and the window is wide but doesn’t have much height or depth.

We showcased four outfits in total. It’s not possible to use mannequins to display the clothes because of the limited dimensions of the window and so due to the lack of space the use of ‘T bar’ frames to display the outfits were extremely effective in this window.

The boutique style display was completed with the addition of some wire bird cages suspended at varying heights. The muted ‘Tiffany’ coloured cages complemented the blues and jades of the outfits and they completed the simple look of the window.

 

 

window dressing

If your window space is too small to use mannequins to display your fashion pieces then try draping and folding your key pieces on chairs or alternatively over pieces or furniture – small chests of drawers are ideal for this. Soft dressing can be a very effective way of displaying shirts, jackets, knitwear, trousers, skirts and accessories. VM Design can advise you on this and other visual merchandising techniques.
