Clear Vision for Bridport Business After Euro Win!
6:56am 13th September 2013
One of the window displays in a Bridport Business has caught the eye of a European Window Dressing Competition.
The I. J. Brown Opticians in West Street is the UK winner for a display they put together for one of their suppliers, Silhouette.
The other four winning opticians are based in Barcelona, Switzerland, Germany and Vienna.
Beverley Stiling is the dispensing optician who created the display. The prize was the chance for her to spend the day working with a London based creative visual merchandising consultant who specialises in luxury window dressing, Elpida Magkoura. They've created the current display in the window of the Bridport opticians together.
We visited Beverley after she had re-dressed the window with Elpida Magkoura who was very pleased to have won. She told where she gets her inspiration from, "I try and dress the windows with something current that's happening in Bridport, so for example the Bridport Hat Festival we make sure we have a hat in there, Carnival time we get lots of bunting, fireworks is always great because we can go really bright with all the material as well; so if it can be related to Bridport, fantastic!"
