I know the Mistress has been very absent of late. It has been a very busy time with so much going on at work. Last week we wrapped up one of our biggest events of the year in addition to some trunk shows we had for two designers. Then it was all about our huge visit this past Tuesday where the top five brass of the company come for their yearly visit. And I'm happy to report we had a wonderful visit, one of the best I think we have ever had! The list was so minimal of changes we can get these thing done and corrected in one day! Then it was off to the yearly prototype in White Plains New York to set the whole store with our holiday trim and spectacular moments with fashion and trends. These usually have to be WOWS! We also set up all the gift giving tables and little "shops" like trim-a-home and candy shops. Why so early? Well, we do this because after were done with our work, the top brass come thru to check out everything too see. Provided they like it it then get photographed and made into a directive book and then sent to stores. All the other stores don't set Christmas till the mid -November range. Anyho, the Mistress did set up some of her visual moments I did at my own store. The first is a mannequin rigged in the YES department showcasing party dresses. They wanted over the top, so they literary got over the top!
The second is a huge wall to the entrance of dresses to showcase a gray dress. I choose to use red as a pop color. The frames really add some drama to the look.
The next pictures are not my creations. All I did was the outfit planning and styling of the wardrobe. I love my co-worker who thought to do a tie in with the show Madmen. It is one of our trends right now showcasing men's suits and trench coats.
And the last picture is a set up I came up with to highlight the Juicy Couture gift giving set-up of jewelry charms and jewelry pieces.
We also visited the Rootstein manniquin showroom. I will do a post soon to show y'all some real over the top fashion and looks. So- after such hard work and many hours on the road I'm happy to report I'm off for a lovely four day weekend now. Wonderful. Toodles!
