A fashion showroom allows a fashion designer to showcase his or her latest designs for clientele. It usually is not open to the public, but rather it's a way for invited clients and department store buyers to take a sneak peek or to schedule an appointment for private fittings. A fashion showroom may also be close to the fashion designer's workspace and may have an area for models to show the latest creations.
Things You'll Need
- Clothes racks
- Coffee table
- Three-way mirror
- Changing room
- Designer's catalog
Position the clothing racks in a row against a wall. It is important to have the clothing pieces hanging in a way so the client can see them easily. Grouping the clothing by color or by day wear versus evening wear are good ways to organize the collection.
Position the sofa in the center of the room. This will allow the clients to sit and view the collection, whether by catalog or live model.
Place the coffee table directly in front of the sofa. This shows maximum hospitality to the client by holding beverages and light meals, as well as catalogs and sketches.
Set up the three-way mirror in an area near the changing room. A platform may be placed in front of the mirror for the model to stand on to make hemming and adjustments easier for the designer. This set-up can also be viewed by the client while sitting on the couch.
Place the designer's catalog or sketches on the coffee table for clients to see. Creating a comfortable area for the client is essential while showing the pieces of the collection.
