Visual Merchandising Students Create Window Display for The Fashion Center
Students' work on display for the public throughout the holiday season
The work of LIM College's Visual Merchandising students is now featured in a window display at the Fashion Center (located at 209 West 38th Street in Manhattan).
The “Holiday Fantasy” installation is a project of the College’s Visual Presentation class, which is taught by Marjorie Lee Woo, Associate Chair of the Visual Merchandising Department. The students were challenged was to develop a holiday-themed window presentation that would delight tourists and fashion industry professionals alike as they bustle through New York City’s Garment Center.
Under the direction Professor Lee Woo, students Flora Evoli, Corinth Montanye and Kristin Smith were responsible for the conceptualization, development, production and installation of the project. The team decided on a concept based on a festive illusion of a winter princess in an ethereal enchanted forest. They utilized a variety of materials, including paper, corrugated board, twigs, ribbon, and feathers. In the display, a corrugated cardboard tree embellished with a filigree of magical stencil cutouts sets the tone for a stylish young woman as she wanders through a snowbound forest.
The primary mission of the Fashion Center is to sustain and improve upon the vibrancy and vitality of Midtown Manhattan’s Fashion District by promoting the area as a strategic business location for fashion and non-fashion related business alike. The “Holiday Fantasy” window will be on display throughout the remainder of the 2012 holiday season.
