It is the creative process that evokes the desire to buy. This course teaches the student the co-ordination of all the physical elements required to create a visual.

Visual Merchandising is the art of presenting the product or service to the consumer, in a way that it looks enticing enough for them to make the purchase. It is the creative process that evokes the desire to buy. This course teaches the student multidisciplinary visual merchandising and branding experience, and students will learn to achieve a wide range of design skills that will include all aspects of visual retail display and fashion spaces.

Visual Merchandising, when done well, can show the wide variety of products in a store, while also highlighting the product or service that need to be the focal point for the brand. Store displays change with every new collection or sometimes with special occasions.

The study of colours, associated moods, interiors and ambience design are all taught in this course, to make the student understand how to best showcase a brand's merchandise.

It is all about telling a story most creatively, and we teach that to our students under the able guidance of an industry veteran Sarah Manning.
