Sweeties, don't you agree lingerie shopping today has become an aspirational whirlwind of luxury design and hedonism, where store interiors increasingly take on an indulgent appearance; opulent boudoir or luxury hotel for instance - in an attempt to transport the customer out of the everyday and into a fantasy world?
My fantastic creator, Proportion London have long recognised this trend, and developed a high-end range of visual merchandising product, to help their clients bring those lace adorned dreams to life.
Selfridges; Body Studio
The new and impressive Body Studio at Selfridges opted for Proportions free standing bodies and hanging forms from their CAPSULE and BOUDOIR ranges, which not only maximised the shop floor area but also punctuated the space with interesting and creative presentation groupings. Each piece of kit was carefully considered to suit the specific areas of the body studio.
V&A exhibition; Undressed: A Brief History Of Underwear
In addition, Proportion London supplied the V&A Museum with body forms and mannequins for the 'Undressed: A Brief History Of Underwear' exhibition. The exhibition explores underwear design from the 18th century to the present day, considering the practical and personal, sensory and fashionable roles of protecting and enhancing the body.
No stranger to the museums briefs (as in instructions not pants)! Proportion understand the importance of versatile and top quality presentation product. With over 200 examples of underwear for men and woman on show - some including custom-made items, they had to ensure their figures were the perfect fit and robust enough to stand under the spotlight and watchful eye of museum visitors for almost a year. Of course, for Proportion this was a comfortable challenge, but it is an achievement never the less.
The exhibition runs until 12th March 2017. For more information or tickets please visit their website by clicking here
