Fashion Scene at 2011 Art Basel Miami

Filed under: Displays,Fashion,Mannequins — Tags: , , , , — eve @ 6:21 am

Another star-studded event took place last Dec. 1 2011, at Miami Beach, and it’s emerged as a major affair attended by the crème-de-la-crème of the fashion industry. The Art Basel Miami is said to be the sister event of Art Basel in Switzerland. Apart from being a platform for contemporary art dealers and collectors, it’s also an important event in the luxury fashion arena.

It’s a star-studded event that somehow created a fashion exhibit out of an art exhibit. Although the glam and fashion is already overwhelming, the Financial Times notes that the many fashion brands attending the event have to adhere to a certain set of rules and guidelines : the collection must have an impact in such a way that the art will be the highlight of the show.

The event illustrates how fashion and art can roll into one and a lot of highly regarded designers, photographers and high-end luxury brands presented their creations at the event. It points out the importance of presentation, how you present your creations to the world can have a huge impact on whether or not people will love it or hate it.

It’s quite similar to how you display your dresses in your shop windows. Your mannequins can play a big part in attracting potential buyers.

Filed under: Displays,Fashion,Marketing — Tags: , , — eve @ 8:27 am

Targeting small retail stores without their own e-commerce, there are a growing number of  websites that allow retailers to join as part of an online shopping community. These online shops offer a wide range of clothing and accessories for men, women and children. Customers browsing the site can view delivery information and photos for items, as well as details about the particular shops selling them. Visitors can search by item or by shop and area; when they find something they like, they order and pay.

They’re a convenience for people that helps them to save time for things that are more important than buying groceries or shopping for clothes.

In fact there are a lot of ways to promote your products like online marketing and virtual marketing, but the classic window shopping will never go out of style. Yes it’s true that it’s convenient to shop online, but the fun and enjoyment of shopping is still different when you’re actually doing the choosing and trying on clothes.

Jewellery Display

One of the best ways of displaying jewellery is on part of the human anatomy especially the hands as people have an affinity to handling jewellery pieces.  I’ve attached an image of an example of this.  As seen it automatically catches the eye and hopefully draws the prospective buyer to further investigate.  For other examples of jewellery displays using hands in different position or other displays  can be found here Jewellery Display Hands Jewellery Display
