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!
