London College of Communication, Student Guest blogger Kathryn Kane

Kathryn Kane, Fda Display Design, Work Placement at Marks and Spencer.
In June I had the opportunity to gain some work experience at Marks and Spencer at the new Westfield Shopping Centre. It was a very busy time as M&S were celebrating their 125 year anniversary. The first week was spent making sure we had all the decor for the store and the right outfits for the mannequins in the window, and over a very long night shift it all came together. The windows were unveiled the next morning, revealing vintage inspired window displays for each department. Marks & Spencer had decided to go back to their roots as inspiration for these displays reflecting different decades from the 1920’s onwards. I like the vintage inspired idea, reflecting the many changes in fashion and lifestyle. I think that Marks & Spencer 125 year celebration is reflected well in these windows.
