Passage - A Walking Exhibition
Catch innovative window installations and designs as Curtin University Fashion Merchandising students work with retailers on Beaufort Street as part of a new community project kicked off by the Beaufort Street Network.
The Beaufort Street Network is a new community organisation for people who love the unique vibrancy, lifestyle and retail nature of the strip– and are committed to making it even better.
Working to the theme “Passage: a walking exhibition”, nine groups of Curtin students have been asked to work with retailers to develop innovative window displays – which show both creative flair but also includes the retail store’s particular products.
This is a great initiative which provides a practical and hands on opportunity for students to learn about display merchandising and project management, while also bringing together retailers and developing a sense of community.
The community project will be kicked off at a special evening launch on the Street on Thursday evening, 23rd October at Billie and Rose from 6pm and end at Headturners hairdressers where the winner for best overall window display will be announced at 9:30.
The walking exhibition will run for two weeks until Wednesday 5th of November.
The stores participating in the project include: Planet Video; Libertine; Behind the Monkey; Ruck Rover; Test tube; Headturners; Ware; Baker and Shuhandler; and Billie and Rose.
