Christmas Festivities | Harrods Windows

Harrods Christmas Display


Every Christmas tourists(even locals) flock to the main department stores in London to see the beautiful Christmas displays. Harrods is among the popular department stores that always has captivating displays based around various themes. All the windows are covered up just before showdown and the unveiling is tried much like an event of the season, that must not be missed! Adults and kids alike gather around the store to take in the festivities as the curtains are dropped to reveal the year's display story. Usually I avoid such places like the plaque, but as I in the area I thought I would check out what this year's creativity brought to Harrods' Christmas window displays. 

This years theme transports you to The Land of Make Believe with beautiful creations of oversized vintage toys from some of the best designers around the world.


 If you follow me on Instagram you may have seen me post Stella McCartney's beauty princess in a shimmering dress. Harrods never do things in halves and this year is no different as their displays are via a contribution from 11 of some of the world best luxury designer brands. Each one exuding luxe and opulence. There is a lovely pirouetting ballerina by Zuhair Murad, an oversized teddy, mini stuart mice surrounded by luxury handbags and accessories. The elaborate theme around these unique displays continues throughout the store. Below you will also spot a few from the Burberry store in Knightsbridge, which, not as sparkly and glitzy are  just as lovely and enticing.

If I get the chance I may show you more of the Christmas festive windows from Selfridges or Harvey Nicols who also do amazing  creations that people especially visit the department stores for.
