[FASH 49] More photos of student’s displays

Posted in Class Group Projects, Discuss This Display, Fashion 49 by Arcadia on June 7, 2013

Here are the rest of the photos from various weeks throughout the semester of the visual merchandising class:

fash 49 - wedding display

Wedding theme: This display from Group 2 was too pretty for words!  All of the flowers were hand-made!

fash 49 - sports display

Sports theme: Group 1 did a fantastic job with their Men’s Health display considering the bad shape of the shelf unit.  They literally transformed it!  The stack of chairs on the side are helping to hold it up (lol)!

fash 49 - tory burch display

Fashion Designer theme:  This Tory Burch display is another example of how a few dollars and a lot of man hours can go a long way.  The fabulous floral logo was all done by hand! – Group 4

fash 49 - the blonds

Fashion Designer theme:  Here’s a table display in progress from Group 1.  That bust form is amazing, it is almost an exact replica of what The Blonds created for their runway show!

fash 49 - LUSH display

Green/Eco-friendly theme:  Here’s a completed cube presentation from Group 5.  I love that they chose to provide signage above the display and not just on the table.  It frames the  presentation and makes it complete.  I could see this in a LUSH store for sure!

fash 49 - mardi gras

“Pick a City” theme:  This was such a fun display from Group 4!  Pick a city meant the teams could choose any city they wanted to build a display around.

fash 49 - Katy Perry

Music theme:  Group 1 had the challenge this week of working on the beaten up shelving unit, but the way they transformed it, you can hardly tell!  This was a delicious display ,and notice the under-cabinet lighting they provided.   A very important and good detail!

fash 49 - green display

Green/Eco-friendly theme:  This was the best window display this semester.  Group 2 reused a few flowers from their wall display.

fash 49 - coachellafash 49 - coachella

Music theme: This Coachella display was perfect, from the lights they included around the ferris wheel backdrop, to the floral headband – Group 2 – I loved it!!!

philip treacy

Fashion Designer theme: Here’s another window that impressed.  Group 6, which were on a British kick for the class :),  chose famed milliner Philip Treacy as their designer to highlight.  Each student hand-made a hat to display in their overall design.  The big flower arrangement you see is a hat as well!

There were so many other projects that were good, but these are a few that really stood out to me.  They all learned that display work:

  • Is not easy!!!
  • Requires everyone’s assistance the day of installation
  • You eventually have to settle on an idea and get to work
  • You need to be organized and allow time ahead of the due date to purchase materials/supplies
  • Paint needs time to dry  – or else you get it everywhere!
  • Conditions are not always ideal, but you gotta deal with it and move ahead
  • Sometimes you gotta improvise
  • No one sees your mistakes unless you point them out
  • COMMUNICATE, COMMUNICATE, COMMUNICATE with your team!

Like I said before it was a great semester and I am so proud of the work my students have produced, you guys ROCK!

FASH 54A I haven’t forgotten about you guys.  I will be posting your fashion editorials and advertisements soon.  It’s just  A LOT of photos and model release forms to sort through.  But in the meantime I will post the photos from your very first project, where you had to “re-style” yourself in whatever outfit you choose to wear to class that day – remember that?  I know some of you are cringing right now (lol)!  I promised you they wouldn’t be seen by anyone else but me, but some of you did fabulous work that should be seen!

Visual Merchandising Student’s “green” Theme Displays

Posted in Class Group Projects, Discuss This Display, Fashion 49 by Arcadia on April 6, 2011

Group projects are underway in class and we are off to a great start!  I love this part of the semester when I don’t have to lecture as much and the students get to unleash their creativity.

This week’s theme was “green”.  Their displays had to have an eco-friendly focus.  The students get to choose whatever product they wish to promote.  Here are some photos from this week’s displays.  The only group missing is Group 2, as the display cubes went MIA from our classroom (I’m on the hunt for them now)!

Group 1 had the wall this week:

Two students who are proud of their work!

 

Group 3 had the window this week:

Group 4 had the table this week:

Group 5 had the shelving unit this week:

So how do you think my students did?  Everyone in class is getting the chance to critique each others work.

Coming Next Week Holiday

Our class – Fashion 49 have been presenting their group displays this past few weeks.  Students were asked to present four display projects

  1. Store Window
  2. Display Cube
  3. Wall Display
  4. Table Display

Using pre-selected themes and budget of $80.00 each:

  • Pop Culture
  • “Eco-friendly”/Green
  • any Holiday
  • Music

Here are a few photos from some of the students work.  Can you determine from the display what the theme is and what “product” they are selling?

Great job Group 3!
