acoté- Hayes Valley, San Franciso

As the Visual Merchandiser to the only acoté shop in the US, it was my responsibility to ensure merchandising reflected the French visual directive. One of each style & color was merchandised on the sales floor, awareness of inventory and product was crucial to this merchandising setting. Collections were biannual, refreshing the sales floor so that clients see a fresh store through the year was key.

PrAna- Pacific Heights, San Francisco

It was a great adventure to be the Lead Visual Merchandiser where I was able to bring my creative mind to play at this beautiful two-floor boutique shop on Fillmore Street in San Francisco. New color stories were released every two months and the store would go through revamps to keep things looking fresh. Window displays would be changed every three months and most times included multimedia art installations. After the window display was changed, it was my responsibility to sustainably dispose of the window collateral. I donated all yoga mats to Headstand's Gala 2015. A nonprofit dedicated to empowering at-risk youth to combat toxic stress through yoga and mindfulness. Personal feedback requested by prAna's headquarter team was often used to create the store's visual directive, marketing, and ambiance.
