Light the way

Versace seen here at City Center in Las Vegas uses bright lights and plexi risers to successfully create a moody backdrop for it's store.

for more news of this new retail venue - see www.citycenter.com

we LOVE visual merchandising

and visual merchandisers - and all the many people it takes to give brands their look at a retail level. Like many things, its easy to take something for granted "from the outside". When a shopper walks into a pleasing retail environment, he or she may not understand all the many steps it took to make that magic happen.
Well we do and we salute the creative directors, the production teams, the brand ambassadors, the VM field teams, the store teams and the many, various departments, peoples and teams it takes to make retail shopping fun and retail stores beautiful.

and for those who are out of work or looking for work in the field - try this website
LONG LIVE Visual Merchandising and exciting retail experiences.

High rolling at LV

Here's a gamble that paid off. Seen here at City Center, these shots of the Louis Vuitton store, show big gold dice used to highlight some of their leather goods in an animated way.

What's black and white and used all over?

Apparently newspaper!
I love when ideas get reused.
Seen here at J Crew in 2008, newspapers covered everything but the clothes. This year spotted at Brighton in Vegas, newspaper became the clothes to add a little pizazz to this great accessory store window...and I think the trend will continue.
Keep an eye out and read all about it here.
