Crate & Barrel Window Design Project

Most fashion fanatics geek out on great window displays — Johnson & Wales University students Hannah and Caitlin got to design one, for a project that took them beyond the classroom and into the merchandising industry.

For their real-world class project, the girls got some key guidelines: Crate & Barrel’s corporate vision for the windows, suggested products and a floor plan to fill in. The rest was up to them!

Once Crate & Barrel approved their design, the girls had just a few hours to bring it to life at the store's location in Downtown Providence.
