I realize it’s a little bit past Christmas, but hey there’s still snow on the ground, so this winter themed news is still relevant! Professor Ehrhart’s BUS208 Display & Visual Merchandising class, and the entire Fashion Program want to thank Charles Men’s Shop from the bottom of our hearts for allowing us to decorate windows for the annual Holiday Window Display in the city of Batavia. Eight students were provided an opportunity to decorate the windows: Maggie Gabalski, Lauren Countryman, Bailey Johnson, Jordan Reese, Jessica Rush, Jeanne Riviera, Jessica O’Brien, and myself (Kasey Edgerton).
The Charles Men’s Shop windows at 200 East Main St. placed first in the Holiday Window Decorating Contest sponsored by the Batavia Business Improvement District. For winning, the store received $200 which was then split among the eight visual display students. Ten judges- all of them senior citizens who live in the city-cast their votes after viewing 16 downtown store windows, both during the daytime and evening hours.
In conclusion I would just like to reiterate how thankful we are to Charles Men’s Shop for their continual support of the GCC Fashion Program, and to our marvelous professor Ms. Ehrhart for arranging the educational opportunity.
