Visual Merchandising contest with students and ALU!
A selection of students from JAK Akademie for Fashion Design in Hamburg, are in a visual merchandising contest. Students were asked to create 10 different window displays based on a theme they are given for that day. They are working with merchandising fixtures provided by ALU.
What’s an Autopole? I remember back in 1992, when I was doing visuals for Macy’s, my boss came to me and said we are now going to be using these poles throughout the store for merchandise, as well as signage. Autopoles are based on what photographers use. An Autopole is an extremely lightweight vertical expansion system. It only takes one person to assemble it! It can offer you a 360° display range thanks to the “super clamps” or “Autopole Adapters” you can use. I really loved how easy and accessible the Autopole made everything!
[Caution: I do not recommend the Autopole for pole dancing!]
The themes the students were given were:
- Denim Apparel
Here are a few photos of the student’s window displays:
