The Year 4 Window Display Competition, sponsored by Purfex Visual Merchandising Specialists and Ton van der Veer, Visual Display Artist, was held in Newmarket.
The First Prize, a $1000 Purfex mannequin was awarded to Erin Balle, Second Prize, a $500 Purfex mannequin to Trish Peng and the Runner Up Award, a beautiful book on the fashion designer, Jeanne Lanvin, sponsored by Ton, was awarded to Erica Bryers. The students presented displays of two outfits from their current collection and employed methods of visual communication to enhance their display and clearly convey their concept and designer image. The stores that participated in this year’s project were Isakelle, Saks, Muse, Method, October Reign, Pearl and Gigis. The retailers were very impressed with the student’s displays and enjoyed working with them all. Some even had customers wanting to buy the student’s designs.
