Associate Chair of Visual Merchandising Department Wins Industry Competition
LIM College faculty members shine at IRDC conference
For the second time in three years, Marjorie Lee Woo, Associate Chair of LIM College's Visual Merchandising department, was a member of the winning team in the "Iron Merchant" competition at the International Retail Design Conference (IRDC). She competed against industry professionals from across the world to create a unique display in one hour’s time.
Now in its fifth year, the Iron Merchant Challenge is an opportunity for visual display professionals to apply their creativity alongside high-level peers from across all retail sectors. Attendee votes determine the best of show for this hands-on challenge, with the winning team getting a moment to shine on stage on the final morning of the conference.
LIM College was well-represented at the IRDC in Toronto this year. Visual Merchandising Department Chair Eric Feigenbaum moderated a panel discussion which included faculty member Paul Olszewski, who is Director of Windows for Macy's Herald Square. Olszewski also came home with an award for "Best Store Windows" throughout the retail industry.
