>Portfolio: Selfridges Window Display


I thought it was about time I showed you a little bit more about how I spend my time other than going out taking pictures and editing them for Snippets of Shiny Thoughts! In reality, I spend most of my time pottering for my Fashion Promotion course which I take at Middlesex University in North London. For this project, I was asked to design a shop window display for a new contemporary mens floor of Selfridges. I chose to start looking into the Male Group which lead me to creating a fictional band called The Mannequins (ok there did used to be a real one but we’ll look past that for now!) This band would perform in the window on the opening weekend with dummy mannequins being the audience. Here’s the step-by-step process of making the window on Photoshop:
Hopefully you can see that the coloured people would be the band and the others, the mannequins. I wanted the whole window set to be very clinical, pointing to the environment a mannequin would feel comfortable in (cream coloured, plastic…) The Mannequins band therefore would stick out like a sore thumb.
Told you it would look like a sore thumb! Here’s the finished representation, with people and lighting created in 3D by my lovely, clever housemate Miguel:
