Fortnum and Mason Follies windows

More window display news! These Fortnum & Mason ‘Follies’ themed displays are left over from Christmas, but I’m glad they haven’t taken them down yet. They’re perfect for cheering up January, when all you see in shop windows are huge and tatty SALE SALE SALE banners.

There’s nothing like some good, old-fashioned, high camp glamour. You know, just riding a sparkly deer, chatting backstage in a foot-high wig, sharing some champagne and a joke with a mustachioed man in tights. No big deal.

Dressing up as a giant peacock.

The visual merchandisers must have had so much fun researching and decorating these windows. There are lots of cute vintage details.

If these photos don’t make you want to wear something pink with feathers, you haven’t looked at them long enough yet.

    Glad to see window dressing is not an entirely lost art form – not much to see on this scale in my antipodean locale…. Thanks for sharing !
