...AUTUMN CHARITY SHOP WINDOW...

i have volunteered at age concern in northampton on st.giles street, they call me the window dresser...it is a lot of fun and there are ALWAYS biscuits...


i had seen this crimson velvet dress in the shop a week before and i thought it was very appropriate for autumn, i found it challenging to create a window that looked unified with stock that is donated and therefore not trend led, i thought the simplest way to do this was to have a male and female window and to create colour schemes or themes...


...there were certain things i had to keep in the window such as christmas cards and diaries as theses sell well at the charity shop...i thought these little ceramic animals added a playful feel...


...i have accidentally deleted my full length photo of the men's window but it had an outdoor countryside feel to it, lots of wool, tweed and leather, i used maps, binoculars and umbrellas as props
