Dublin is a thriving shopping location with many inviting department stores. The aim of my thesis project was to fill a gap in the market for a fresh, contemporary and chic retail destination within the city centre.

The design concept for Findlater House department store came from the shapes and outlines of mannequins. I emphasised the exaggeration of forms and simplification of curves from the human body that mannequins allow. The visual shown here shows part of the womenswear section.
