Visual Merchandising Plans
Sharing the process followed at Tanishq when it comes to Visual Merchandising Sukanya Gopinath, Manager – VM, Tanishq says, “The design brief for the festive season begins 4-5 months in advance in keeping with the marketing and retail calendars. Of course, certain campaigns might also be reworked due to the changes in the market scenario. Therefore it’s important for the VM concept to be able to accommodate last minute changes. However the festive season is easier to handle as the mood for the season is about the spirit and the festivities. With trend reports and market visits for new materials, a mood board is presented to the concerned departments. Post this, prototypes and samples are made and tested on site. Market surveys done during the proto phase will help with the vendor finalization and raw material procurement process. Typical production timelines are about 2 months for an all India roll out.”
