Fashion and Retail Interiors
You know how you feel when you step into your favorite designer’s flagship store location. Not only do you love the fashion but you probably love the way things are presented as well.
The CEOs and their respective design and marketing teams all know how important store layout and design is to overall brand aesthetic. They also know how it affects and drives retail sales and their bottom lines.
Most retailers spend hundreds of thousands if not millions of dollars each year on teams of in-house visual merchandisers to ensure that their collections are being presented with the proper aesthetic, with attention to each new line or collection, and how to showcase the features and benefits of each garment to their customers and clients in a way that will maximize sales opportunities.
There are reasons why everything looks so beautifully presented when you enter your favorite retail establishments. Having amazing product is one piece of the puzzle, but having an irresistible presentation and store interior design is something else entirely.
