Selfridges Christmas Window Display
With this year’s theme: Journey to the Stars I had to share the stunning Selfridges Window Display 2015…
Millner Lara Jensen helped to create the 12 looks, which took a total of 178 hours to install with a team of almost 100 people working on them continuously over 8 days, in a rotation of shifts.
Lara has created hats for a list of famous clients, including Lady Gaga, Johnny Depp and Leona Lewis…
“I wanted to use the opportunity to do something wonderful and beautiful.”
Lara – you have!

Cancer – ‘Children of the Moon’

The headpiece used in the window representing Scorpio was made by Maiko Takeda, who is known for making the incredible headpieces worn by Scorpio star Bjork whilst performing in her Biophilia tour.
Sagittarius – ‘Free As A Bird’

The mermaid tails in the window representing Pisces made up of 3,000 scales in total (1,000 each), with approx. 15,000 crystals. It took 5 people 2 weeks to attach and embellish all of the scales!
