Selfridges: A hundred years of Windows.

8th Jan 2013

I’m a costume drama kind a girl. It stems from my teenage obsession with Catherine Cookson and Bronte books. Soooo you name it any BBC/ITV period drama that airs- I’m watching it. I loved the first episode of Mr. Selfridge on Sun and the ohhhh-ahhhh moment came when the first window displays were unveiled. At the time they caused a stir and continue to do so- my favorite in recent years was the Louboutin take-over. Here’s a quick post on some of the Selfridges windows over the years.
