“Thinking about age all the time is the biggest prison women can make for themselves.”,
There is a great interview with Nicolas Ghesquiere and Dominiques Gonzalez-Foerster BALENCIAGA BOUTIQUES by Olivier Zahm in the Spring Summer 2012 issue of PURPLE FASHION magazine
Since now I’m working for the Department of Commercial Interior and Visual Merchandising at the Westerdals School Of Communication, where the main focus is on retail design and interior architecture, I ‘ve developed a special interest for window decoration and visual merchandising design. It’s a very difficult area to work around, because it’s the most commercial one. Very often the all cool concepts end up just with a styling of the things that shops find difficult to sell. And it’s easily for a designer to become tacky and for window decoration to look cheap , even for the luxury brands that invest in the window decoration.
I find that the best window decoration for the moment are done by Arnold Goron for Isabel Marant. He has done the packaging’s concept and illustrations for Isabel Marant as well. Sometimes I think, that my decision to purchase something from Isabel Marant is made not because of a seasons ” must have” by her, but because of the Goron’s work. As such, the goal of visual communication designs is.
My favorite is MOLECULAR STURCTURES
Yesterday I passed by BIT, Bogstadveien 48,
my last interior project as a project leader while I was still working for Scenario Interiørarkitekter, and noticed a sticker on the window:
Awards For Design Excellence Norwegian Design Council.
Congratulations to BIT and Dinamo, Scenario Interiørarkitekter and little bit myself , since the BIT interior is a part of the new BIT’s brand.
