Shop Windows

 I went into the centre of Glasgow today to attempt to take some street style shots. However, after been told to go away like 5 times I decided that I probably should give up my battle and began looking at the shop windows. This year the visual merchandisers of shops like Urban Outfitters (above), Fred Perry (below) and Topshop (further below) have totally pulled it out of the bag. Urban outfitters was by far my favourite! I liked the use of comedy to attract people to the shop (reverse psycology does work people!) but they totally backed it up by having these amazing hanging paper sculptures. To be honest I've always loved the shop windows and interior design in Urban Outfitters, so I wasn't surprised by this excellent display. In Glasgow we only have a tiny little Fred Perry shop but their huge advent calendar style window display was definitely attract attention (It wasn't only me taking pictures of it). Topshop didn't go with a full blown Xmas window but they definitely went for the party season look and in one window had lots and lots of sparkles. But, it was the other window that I like the best. Three large photographs of models were placed behind mannequins. In both the photo and the mannequin there was the same item of clothing, just styled in a different way. veryu smart. Christams shopping is one of the most stressful times of year so it's nice just to take a second and look at what the visual merchandisers of each shop have come up with.
