It’s a window that follows the actual trend started by the big department stores like (Selfridges, Macy’s, Lafayette, Bloomingdale …) who replaced products and mannequins for the Christmas display with fairy tales reproduced with the help of: miniature scale or real size characters, props and display ambient. A balanced composition exposed in 2 acts, easily remarkable both daytime and nighttime.
The design and concept work was performed by Alina Dobre who briefly indicates us the theme, accessories, props and the symbolic name of the windows “Stardust “. “We are made of” stardust “, composed of substances” landed “on Earth millions of years ago thanks to excellent transport: comets.”
