Fashion Merchandising 2012 Students from Curtin University have just dressed our front window for their final Visual Merchandising project, and we're pretty happy with what they did!

Murder on Roe
This scene depicts a housewife, unaware of the murderous death coming to her. As she indecisively tries to put together the perfect outfit, she is suddenly murdered and dismembered in her dressing room.


They came up with their own brief and made their props. Nice going ladies! We hope you get 10/10!

Their display will be up until 22nd October, and features pieces by local labels Baroque & Roll, Martha & Lilly and Suzi Homemaker.
