Shape Play


My display was influenced by the Memphis Movement, which originated in the early 80’s. The Memphis group’s work featured colourful decoration and asymmetrical shapes. I wanted to reinterpret this with a contemporary concept. I loved the idea of using colour pop and geometric abstraction throughout the display to draw the customers in. As this was a big trend for Spring Summer 15, I had a wonderful selection of clothes and accessories to choose from within Brown Thomas, which is where I did my work placement during my final year in DIT. I had A lot of fun with it!
