VM design elements Colour Can immediately create a mood Lighting: Should accent focal point, if possible Customers entering a store are greatly influenced by the visual information they gather in the first split second. One simple visual element, such as colour, can catch a shopper's attention and also greatly affect their mood. In today's ultra competitive market place it is of paramount importance that retailers understand the basics of visual merchandising. A right choice of colours in the display can turn walkers into stoppers and significantly convert them into customers. It is therefore mandatory to choose the right colour for the right theme of display.

10. Case study....

11. Adidas

12. Adidas Clarity of thought : The window display focuses on the women wear and accessories specially for the sports. Creativity : The tagline being used is quite motivating for women of this era and would assure her that anything is possible. The straight mannequins also suggest forcefulness and rigidness of the women’s attitude. The colour used in the background is blue signifying the cool and sporty look.

13. Adidas Effectiveness : The display of upside down women signifies the freedom and independency of women which will motivate them to walk in the store. Why did it work : It forces female customers to ponder what the store holds for them.

14. Marks & Spencer

15. Marks & Spencer Clarity of thought : The window display clearly shows that the sale season is going on for the apparels and accessories offered by the store. Creativity : The red color is used to indicate sale period which can be discovered from a far distance. Red colour is psychologically attached to the customers; it portrays excitement/ impulse purchase decisions.

16. Marks & Spencer Effectiveness : A customer interested would surely walk-in to avail the discounts as the display is shouting out for the sale season. Why did it work : The entire display used the red color tints and shades indicating sales period & also providing an opportunity to avail extra reduction. The big banners as well as mannequins wearing similar t-shirts talking about sale are also very helpful.

17. Research Look beyond and read between the lines… What are artists doing? Art instillations… Could this be a source of inspiration. Competitors… Trends… Fashion/ Lifestyle

20. WGSN...

21. WGSN VM trends: New Nostalgia: Glamorous looks are restrained by wartime austerity as humble and luxury walk hand in hand. Highlander: The modern manor breathes new life into dusty heritage looks Country Grunge: Traditional country styling is distressed and destroyed with gothic and grunge overtones. Earthbound: Natural evolution sees weather-worn, decayed and scarred surfaces inspire chunky knits and geological print directions 80s Power: Sharply structured dressing makes a powerful statement in the face of economic downturn 80s Cocktail: Indulgence directs this party wear trend, flying in the face of economic misery. Shimmering fabrics and dramatic 80s styling creates a look designed for hard partying. Biker Body-con: Building on the season's overriding mood of power and anarchy, the Biker Body-con look draws on punk and rock influences Warrior Goddess: The warrior influences span time and space, referencing gladiators, medieval knights and galactic invaders.
