I Do Windows

Group Projects: Music

Posted in Class Group Projects, Discuss This Display by Arcadia on May 22, 2012

Here are the displays for the Music theme week:

Group 1 – Window

Clever idea to cut the musical note out, and I like the styling of the mannequin.  Like your classmates had mentioned, I too had wished the musical note had been constructed out of a different paper, something more colorful.

Group 2 – Table

Great job group 2!  I could see this display at the MAC makeup counter, and the colors you chose are perfectly on trend!

Group 3 – Shelving 

You’re on the right track with some of the iconic images you used for Jimi Hendrix.  The guitar is great, but the peace fabric is a little much.  Nonetheless this display would work in a store that sells vintage records, and it is truly representational of the artist.

Group 4 – Other Cubes

This was one of my favorite displays of the day.  I loved how you took the cubes and made them into a an old school boombox, yet you have a modern-day music player – genius!  My only critique is to nix the pipe cleaner musical notes.

Group 5 – Wall

The meet and greet display was fun, and who knew 20-somethings were such Beatles fans!  I enjoyed looking at the collage with the drum in the middle.  Great job!

Group 6 – Cubes

As simple as this might look, it took a lot of time to assemble.  You can tell Lady Gaga was just an inspiration for this display and not a direct representation of her. Shame the black contact paper didn’t cooperate, but regardless it is still an elegant display.

 

The final projects coming up are Pop Culture!

Lady Gaga’s windows for Barneys New York

Posted in Retail News by Arcadia on September 15, 2011

As I was speaking to some students regarding the upcoming holiday season and how plans should already be made regarding Christmas windows, I just remembered that Lady Gaga and team will create Gaga’s Workshop on the fifth floor of Barneys and its windows.  This will be really interesting!  I’m trying to keep an open mind but I already have some preconceived ideas of what her holiday windows will look like….and it ain’t pretty!
