“The biggest challenges always tend to be size and durability when dealing with window displays — making something intricate but also large, that will stay up for a long time and not be affected by the weather outside the store. When we designed and built Gucci’s international flagship windows, we also had to figure out how to ship giant paper bags to more than 20 countries, which was not easy; but it was a fun and ultimately successful challenge!”
