Hunt is on for best dressed window in Norwich

The Retail Skills Academy has launched the second run of its window display competitions to find the best dressed shop window in Norwich.

The competition is run in conjunction with Norwich Fashion Week, which takes place from Thursday, September 22 until Thursday, September 29 and will see retailers working with students from the Retail Skills Academy in Norwich to create eye-catching window designs that celebrate fashion in the city.

Head of the Retail Skills Academy in Norwich, Sue Dougal, says that the competition is a great opportunity for retailers to get some fresh ideas for their window designs: 'The window display competition is open to all retailers in the city giving them the opportunity to attract more customers with different designs and eye catching displays.

'The competition gives a student wanting to get into the retail industry invaluable experience and gives the retailer the opportunity to win a Mary Portas Masterclass at the academy.'

Vanilla, pictured above, on Ipswich Road won the award at Norwich Fashion Week back in February and this time the independent fashion retailer will be one of the judges along with Jarrold VM manager Jane Evans and Ms Dougal.
