Project Summary:

Women's apparel store


Project Description:

Design rejects ‘the usual brand choice of sheetrock and dropped ceilings in favor of more creative solutions. Merchandise is integrated into a variety of creative vignettes and displays designed to offer the customer an entire look at a distinct lifestyle.  The artful visual merchandising provides connections between the store design, the merchandise, and the customer, creating        a tailored shopping experience for each customer.’ *
