I finished up my semester in Toronto and am home for the holiday break. It’s nice to be back in Winnipeg. Even though it is one of the coldest cities on earth, it is still my home, and I love it. Despite the cold, Winnipeg winters have a festive snowy wonderland charm. I’ve been trying to spend my time at home eating/drinking at my favourite spots and with my favourite people, and I thought I’d share some of my images from my holiday so far.

My first post I’m dedicating to Louis Vuitton’s immaculate window displays. As a fine arts grad, and a current visual merchandising student, these windows epitomize what I love about window display and how far it can be taken. Sofia Coppola teamed up with LV this season and co-designed some of these windows which were up in La Bon Marche, Paris.
The carnival-esque red and white striped hot air balloon windows I saw this summer when I was in NYC. Painters, sculptors, ceramists and designers are responsible for creating these works of retail art. LV always has beautiful & thoughtful window displays. They set a good example for other retailers, (although LV’s budget for window design must be astronomically high since they’re a luxury name brand). Even still, I feel like this could be the direction window display is heading.
