RMIT’s visual merchandising students have created a vibrant window display for leading Australian fashion retailer Supré.
The challenge for the Diploma of Visual Merchandising students to design a fashion window without mannequins while presenting the brand in a creative and authentic way.
Justin Compton, RMIT Visual Merchandising teacher, said the project was a great way for students to gain real life work experience.
“An assignment of this type prepares students with the skills required to project manage and produce an installation of this type once they enter the Visual Merchandising industry,” Compton said.
“The Visual Merchandising program at RMIT is very proud to be supported by Supré.”
Supré Visual Merchandising Manager, Rowie Kelly, said the project created an invaluable learning environment for students.
“This task allows students to work with the needs of a real client and deliver concepts to a fixed budget,” she said.
“I feel this opens them up to a sense of retail industry awareness that they can’t always receive in the classroom.”
The Supré windows will be on display every day at RMIT Building 94, in Cardigan St, Carlton, until Friday 19 June.
