Creating a cool new look on the Centro de Oro

  • AFTER: A simplified window display packs more punch.

Subtract eight mannequins and add a rainbow backdrop made from plastic tablecloths and you get a crisp, fanciful, and low-cost window display.

Community Design Collaborative volunteer Kara Angotti recently guided the display window makeover of Jerry’s Fashions on North Fifth Street commercial corridor, also known as the Centro de Oro . With support from the Collaborative and HACE – the Hispanic Association of Contractors and Enterprises – Jerry’s storefront went from “busy to streamlined and simple” in just three hours.

With a three-pronged goal of low-budget, visual impact and ease of installation, Kara incorporated simple and cheap materials into an eye-popping design that created a buzz in the store and surrounding commercial corridor. Be sure to check out Kara's YouTube video and blog post about her experience.
