WindowsWear Museum Opens – the World's First Museum of Fashion Windows and In-Store Displays
Monday, December 12, 2016
The WindowsWear Museum at Berkeley College was launched on December 6, 2016. This is the world's first museum celebrating one-of-a-kind, influential fashion window and in-store displays from the world’s best fashion brands.
WindowsWear also has the world's largest digital archive of fashion window displays. Items from the archives will periodically be featured in the museum. The WindowsWear archive dates back to 1931, the same year Berkeley College was founded.
The first installation, from Coach, was unveiled during a reception at the Berkeley College campus in Midtown Manhattan. The installation will be open to the public from 8am to 9pm daily on the first floor of the Berkeley College campus at 12 East 41st Street.
WindowsWear is the ‘Google Earth’ of stores, featuring online in real-time, the largest and most comprehensive database of the world’s fashion window displays, interiors, and e-commerce packaging. Visual creative teams and schools use WindowsWear for inspiration, trends, competitive analysis, and more.
Berkeley College has approximately 8,000 students spread out over nine locations in New York, New Jersey and online, with approximately 2,700 students currently enrolled in New York City. The Fashion Merchandising and Management degree programs integrate the creative and business aspects of the fashion industry.
