  • VM-chroniclesa series of extra-ordinary events No. 1Historically Speaking: Retro-lution not EvolutionHistory is the only way backwards for the retail forward thinkers.Sometimes to go forwards and seize the brave new world, the onlyanswer is to take a step backwards into the past.

  • VM-chroniclesa series of extra-ordinary events No. 1The Apple of our Eyes: "Satisfying the Eclectic Taste!"Fishs Eddy feeds the growing appetite for vintage, individual cookwareproducts as an antidote to modern mass commercialism and productstandardisation. Rather than dictate the purchase to the customer - thenumber of pieces, the uniformity of the pack - Fishs Eddys storeproposition is based around an eclectic "pic n; mix", an all pervasive "mix n match2 where the customer is free to select across categories,styles, colours, periods, designs according to their own whim andindividual taste. The freedom of expression is mirrored beautifully in thevintage props and store fittings, the wonderfully crafted messagespainted lovingly on scraps of wood, or reclaimed tin signage, and thedistressed wooden store environment which provides the perfect shellfor the wonders that spill out over it, filling every surface with intrigueand impulse. full posting on facebook https://www.facebook.com/pages/VM-unleashed-Ltd VM-chronicles: a series of extra-ordinary events from VM-unleashed!

  • VM-chroniclesa series of extra-ordinary events No. 1"Beauty & the Beast!" Primark puts on a new faceYoud have had to have been on a different planet not to know thatPrimark has enjoyed a sensational rise in popularity and in profit overrecent years. This success has been fuelled by the combination ofdesirable, commercial product sold at unbelievable prices, representingunbeatable value. Visual Merchandising has largely been used toenhance the perception of value through the bold display of price heroesand fashion image makers. The very latest fashions and “must-haves”at incredible prices. However, lately the underlying value message hasbeen strengthened further with the development of more inspirationalstore environments and best practice visual merchandising principles.Mannequin displays have entered the store layout creating focal pointsto departments & categories. Importantly there is now a focus onsilhouettes and outfit building, as well as the power prices we havecome to expect. Experiential branding and visual merchandising is notjust the domain of expensive product, and anyone soon to be caught upin the “frenzy” of the new Oxford Street Aladdin’s Cave will understand. full posting on facebook https://www.facebook.com/pages/VM-unleashed-Ltd VM-chronicles: a series of extra-ordinary events from VM-unleashed!
