christmas at the MLC belinda store

Branded like our gift packaging, this was an inexpensive and elegant way to do our MLC windows for christmas..
i was also at the end of my energy and inspiration, so i needed to change from the proposed Klimt inspired design and create something that would still retain its class... i know its not an innovative idea, but i think it is well executed and sometimes, that is just as nice:)

stained glass christmas at Double Bay 2

Ah.. 'the three wise women rejoice in miu miu, stella and Marni'
stain glass joys in Double bay Belinda.

The first image is before i hand painted the colours.. big props to Eric , our signwriter for working on the vinyl elements with me:) <3

then i painted the colours... on the inside or back of the stained glass panel..

the effect , as viewed from inside..

the street view..(eventually, we had a sign with the title made up, for the top of the window)

the effect close up, from the entrance to the store..

stained glass christmas at Double Bay

Stain glass was the inspiration for this years Christmas windows. It was a project that was influenced heavily by the stain glass ideals of hand worked but very graphic elements, and the look of modern stain glass panels.
Whilst at the corner shop window (see below posts) i used perspex to create fields of colour and light within the window.. at Belinda we were more literal with giant sheets of clear acrylic hanging to create stain glass window pains within the window.

Originally the idea was to paint directly onto the glass and turn our store fronts into stain glass windows, however budget and time constraints meant i had to use the perspex sheets and bring the 'stained glass' inside for most of our displays.. except this one... Due to the architecture of the window, we were able to paint directly onto the glass, and for that, this is my favourite of all of them.. it is installed as it was designed:)
Yay! small victories but good ones:)

xmas at the corner shop paddington

Today i did our xmas display in the corner shop paddington. The idea was a collaboration between simone and myself. i think it has a lovely feeling; modern, young and arty, but still very functional, feminine and all importantly, festive!
merry christmas
