In the fall semester, undergraduate interior design students taking the Window Display Design course, with faculty Francisco Spratley and Nikola Meyer, invited the fashion design seniors to collaborate on a project to design and fabricate an installation to showcase 2 looks from the seniors’ final collections within PCA’s Rocroy Gallery window space.
Two looks from fashion seniors Antonia Avery and Kelly Hsieh’s final collections were selected, and the interior design students worked collectively on developing window display proposals based on either one or the other of the looks’ narratives. Following on from initial feedback from the seniors, and conversations between departments thereafter, the designs were finalized, fabricated and assembled by the interior design students within the 2 seperate window spaces giving onto rue Rocroy.
The inspiration for the window display stems from the movie “La Planète Sauvage” and the narrative of Antonia Avery’s collection, titled “The Great Coexistence.”
“The Great Coexistence” collection draws its foundation from the 1973 French science-fiction animation film, “La Planète Sauvage.” The designs within the collection are informed by both the visuals of the film and the overarching theme of the human desire for control. Immerse yourself in this vibrant and psychedelic window display that reflects the essence of both the movie and the collection, created in collaboration with fashion designer Antonia Avery, and interior designers Sophia Grieshaber, Emily Ernszt, and Touleen Taha.
Join us to celebrate both departments’ collaboration and the resulting window displays! All welcome.
