Favorite Window Display

This is my favorite window display of the week because of the technique that is being used here. I really like the idea of the fishes that are being represented for Louis Vuitton. This is a very interesting display because its elegant as well as very creative. This also looks very abstract and has a nice glam to it. The color palette is nice and simple, uses all kinds of colors that represent the company.

Inspiration – Lea Michele

Lea Michele was born on August 29, 1986, in the Bronx, New York. She’s a theater actress, singer, television actress. She’s best known for her role as “Rachel Berry” on the show Glee. Lea Michele had many challenges throughout her life. Despite her success, she did not fit easily at her high school. She’s an amazing women, and has achieved so many different things at a young age. She’s a huge inspiration to many.


imageFor this project, I was inspired my Jackson Pollock’s Art. I created my own painting of abstract expressionism. I decided to go with three main colors; black, white and orange. The main colors that Jackson used were black and white, then he added some other bright/primary colors, so that’s basically why I chose those colors.  When I was painting I first started off with the color black, followed by white and lastly orange. I wanted the orange to stand out, so I put that color last. This was actually I really fun project, because me and my classmates got the chance to play around with different colors of paint.

Artist: Andy Warhol

Andy Warhol; was one of the most prolific and popular artists of his time. He was born on August 6, 1928, in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. Andy Warhol was a successful magazine and ad illustrator who became a leading artist of the 1960s Pop art movements.

He is important because he’s considered one of the two (with Picasso) most influential artists of the 20th century. Also,
Warhol is one of the most well-known twentieth century artists (and in this sense, he exists in the same realm as Pablo Picasso, Jackson Pollock and Marcel Duchamp).

Andy Warhol created window displays. He exhibited 5 large paintings in the window of Bonwit Teller, a New York department store where he had been working for a lot time producing window displays. His paintings were mostly based on comic strips and black/white newspaper ads.

He’s most famous for his artwork; Pop art, modern art and video art.

“I think it would be terrific if everybody was alike”. This is my favorite quote because it just simply speaks the truth. If everyone in this world was the same then it wouldn’t be a good thing at all, everyone would be b0red and basically would copy each other. All the artwork, window displays and etc. would be the same and it would not look good at all.



This is my favorite piece of art because its very well detailed and also has so many different colors. I like how the artist created this. The pattern of the colors continue throughout the whole image. This image looks very specific and atomically tells what is it.

The 60’s

Fashion: In the 1960s fashion was bi-polar in just about every way. The early sixties were more expressive. The late 1960s were the exact opposite. Bright, swirling colors. Tie-dye shirts and long hair and beards were commonplace. Woman wore unbelievably short skirts and men wore tunics and capes. The foray into fantasy would not have been believed by people just a decade earlier.

Cars: Cars from the 1960s were simply the best people said. Not too modern, not too old. Just right. Mustang. Camaro. Road Runner. The list goes on and on. Detroit stated 1964 models were designed with serious consideration for the needs & tastes of American women. Women represented over 1 million sales a year.

1966 models brought the first front-wheel drive car since 1937. People were shocked that someone would make a car that would pull by its front wheels.

Color Stories: Colors were inspired by nature. Green, gold, orange and yellow were very popular and could be found on everything from clothes to home décor, and even cars. Previous eras had similar popular colors, but in the ’60s they were pumped up to vibrant hues.  Combinations such as fuchsia pink and tangerine orange were placed side-by-side. Bright and metallic vinyl wallpapers are used. Contrasts in black-and white were also popular.

Furniture: Furniture was made of metal, glass, wood and PVC, and sometimes combinations of these. New technologies allowed furniture to be made from molded plastic and formed into organic or space age shapes. A lot of furniture was designed to be disposable and temporary. Homes were now being built with casual family rooms or dens in addition to having just a formal living room.

Favorite Window Display

This is my favorite window display of the week because I really like how theres so much things going on at once, so many details yet it tries to look simple. I like the color palette that is used for this display, all the different kinds of blues and a bit of white and light pink for the lights. Everything in this display is well incorporated. The mannequin in the center bring the whole story together and makes it look elegant as well as glamorous. The theme of this display is most likely a holiday/winter display because of the colors that are used and snow at the bottom of the display.

Inspiration – Lucy Hale

My inspiration of the week is Lucy Hale. She’s an American actress and singer. She first started out as a singer, appearing on ‘American Juniors’. She is also known for her role as “Aria Montgomery” on the ABC family series Pretty Little Liars. Lucy was the lead for “A Cinderella Story: Once Upon a Song”. The filming began on February 2011. She’s an inspiring young women, who’s only twenty-six years old, and has accomplished so many goals in her life.
