Window Project: Nathan Gray
Not a Dance is Nathan Gray's first attempt at blending installation and performance. Throughout the Melbourne store, Gray has set up a series of domino-like actions to create artworks and situations that are instant, exciting and pointless.
Window Project: Jesse Olsen
"For the past few years, my work has been predominantly focused on concepts of nostalgia and grieving. I moved around a fair bit when I was a boy and one place I find particularly influential to the themes of my artwork is a Mountain community where I spent most of my youth."

Window Project: Minimarket & Annelie Carlström
For their SS09 collection, Minimarket’s inspiration was “dark versions of Disney characters torn apart and pieced together with each other”. Instead of a Frankenstein-esque horror, they presented a range full of colour, quirky details and fun shapes.

To coincide with Sydney Fashion Week, Elke Kramer and Christopher Morris created a window project especially for our Paddington store. Featuring pieces from Kramer’s AW10 collection, pieces were presented as specimens from a museum in custom made cabinets, complete with workshop tools and the crystals that inspired the range. Photographic cardboard cut-outs by Christopher Morris of the jewellery featured alongside actual pieces from the collection to create curious dioramas.

Lomography Christmas Window
The incredible team at Lomography never fail to impress with their creative approach to window concepts. In the past they've turned a Japanese vending machine into Santa, created a fisherman's dream for the La Sardina range of cameras and for Christmas 2012 they pulled all the stops and made our very own snowy Christmas town complete with flying Lomo cameras and thousands of tiny snow balls.
