August has been busy for VMC running many bespoke retail courses, which are usually held on the retailers premises.
I had the pleasure in meeting independent retailers Dawn & Amy Lawrence this month, when they booked a besoke Visual Merchandising Training Course to be held in their store in Tiptree, Essex. Dawn & Amy own Blossom Bags & Accessories and they have been trading over a year.
The course included the key VM subject areas of ; window dressing , effective visual merchandising principles, mannequin styling/dressing , effective store layout principles and the importance of carrying out regular customer flow exercises. I also spent time looking at all areas of the store and together we discussed ways on how these can be improved.
The photos below show the great window displays that Dawn & Amy worked on whilst on the course ;
