Visual Merchandising and display course

This week I took part in a fantastic workshop day held by Sarah Manning. The course was an introduction to display design and was a great chance for me to learn about the etiquette and skills involved in this industry. Sarah has worked in such companies as Selfridges, Harrods, and Harvey Nichols and I was able to get lots of advice from her. I now hope to do some further work in this field, window dressing for shops privately and also in an assistant vm role.
