Stretching along Great Marlborough Street, the Liberty windows are famed for their innovative, all-encompassing displays. In this series, our Visual Concept Team unveils the stories behind them - from initial moodboards, to completed masterpiece.
Our Conscious Beauty campaign spotlights the brands harnessing organic, vegan or cruelty-free ingredients – whilst placing a higher worth on zero-waste packaging. To reflect these fundamental values, the team built the window display entirely from reclaimed materials, reused waste and natural, sustainable ingredients; creating visual impact, rather than environmental.
“The conscious beauty campaign concept was formed from the developing change within the beauty business. More customers are searching for new and natural ingredients that are not only good for their skin but also the environment.”

“We wanted to challenge ourselves to search out materials that we could build the windows with and follow the same ethos. This meant the creative was strongly led by the textures and materials we were researching.”

“Using our own window installation waste and sourcing recycled material suppliers we have layered the story of the products and the creative together, thus focusing attention on the emerging options of sustainable products and materials available to us all.”

"There was a lot of research involved in finding the materials, we found a great book called Radical Matter by Kate Franklin and Caroline Till, as well as a trip to Material Lab in Great Titchfield street both really informed the materials we used.”
