Selfridges Bright Young Things - Window Displays London Oxford Street

Faithful Reader! The nights are over, and once again we can enjoy the fruits of our labours. This September, we've welcomed 15 brand new Bright Young Things to Selfridges. The last two months have been devoted to carefully planning and guiding the individual designers as they come to grips with working in our 100 year old windows spaces, and on Friday, these extraordinary installations were unveiled to the public along Oxford Street.
Included here are a selection of pictures I took over the four dedicated night shifts - as ever, click on the images for bigger versions.
