If you want to know how to do window displays, keep searching.
on 9 February 2013
I bought this book because I work for a retailer, and want to do eye-catching window displays. I thought this book with give me some theoretical and practical advice about how to go about creating such displays. What it actually is is a collection of very lavish hand colourful photos from some of the world's best window displays. If that's what you're after, you won't be disappointed. You too can marvel at Selfridges' latest 3 metre high heel shoe (I live near Oxford Street - I can see this sort of thing every day), or the Bloomingdales display that maps out the origin of the species. And if you get your inspiration from looking at such things, great. For someone like me who doesn't want to spend the cost of a house in rural England on a display, and can't delegate my artistic vision to a merchandising team, it's nice to look at but practically speaking fairly useless.
