THE MAKING OF CHRISTMAS
INTERVIEW WITH JOHN REDMOND
BROWN THOMAS CREATIVE DIRECTOR
This year the windows celebrate the art of the Christmas greeting card, with eight different themes depicting magical scenes and miniature worlds. We caught up with our Creative Director to find out more about the making of a Brown Thomas Christmas.
How did the theme of Seasons Greetings for Christmas 2016 evolve?
Every year we reflect on the previous Christmas and develop our theme, the most important part of the Christmas windows is to create amazing memories for our customers. From our travels around the globe this year we were inspired by vintage Christmas cards, each window has a Christmas card scene from an ice-skating rink to champagne flute.
What is your aim with the Christmas windows each year?
Our aim is to offer that special Brown Thomas magic to our much valued customer, the season begins when our windows open.
What is your favourite aspects of Christmas at Brown Thomas this year?
I love the owl as the hero for The Marvel Room, this is inspired by both the film Labyrinth - a nod to David Bowie and also a very Irish motif - the owl from The Late Late Show.
