KPU fashion marketing students design displays for Holt Renfrew

Thu, Mar 13, 2014

Vancouver, B.C. - Holt Renfrew teamed up with KPU’s fashion marketing students to design two window and wall displays at the Canadian company's downtown Vancouver location.

Inspired by impressionist and abstract paintings of springtime, the high-end department store gave Kwantlen Polytechnic University students the opportunity to develop their vision and come up with an attractive design concept. 

Beginning with a hand-painted backdrop, the budding fashion marketers added photographs and picture frames to blend both digital and artistic mediums. Striking spring colours and pixelated images were used to reflect the landscapes of Vancouver, while incorporating the digital lifestyles of the city's residents. 

The displays were unveiled at the end of February, and will be up for six weeks. More photos of the project are available on Flickr.
