Waste throw away cosmetic bottles, broken beauty and hair tools and products were collected from beauty salons across London and used to create an up- cycled prop in the backdrop which is handcrafted in the basement of a student dorm.

The mannequin was imported from Italian suppliers and the boxes and logo were manufactured through a local vendor in London. Creative concepts were designed keeping in mind the objectives to be achieved by the Salon. Considering the shoe string budget, the idea was to develop a cost effective visual display that attracted passerby audience who often missed the salon or found it difficult to locate.

Although the idea was to attract attention, the color was kept white with an accent of black and pink reflecting a clean and a refreshing look ideal for a Salon. There is a need for visual merchandising solutions that use re-purposed material in emerging countries like India where the key challenge is limited budgets allotted for visual merchandising by retailers.

There is a need for cost effective yet sustainable solutions not just in emerging countries but everywhere.
