It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas.

Well it is for Bath School of Art and Design’s textile alumni Sara Gifford.
Sara is busy working in the team producing and conjuring up the magic for seasonal display at Harrods.
Sara says…
I’m a Visual merchandiser in the home department in Harrods, we create 90% of the in-store schemes and work alongside brands that have their own brand handwriting.

I would say Christmas is my favourite season.I love to create a magical space for all ages

We do have a very significant amount of say in all aspects of vm, from research, concept and delivery.
Eventually I would like to go into home styling for magazines or catalogs and further down the line to have my own business.

We can’t see why not Sara.You were an extremely capable and creative student and nothing has changed!

Keep in touch Sara with updates please.We love to see your practice.



Showing in London during the Design Festival

We are always keen and excited to show our work.Here we ‘lifted’ the studio and transplanted it into the heart of London during London Design Festival.
The students worked on projects and displayed finished outcomes.Talking to potential employers and purchasers is great experience as they launch their careers.
