Students put market on display in Carlton

RMIT Visual Merchandising students have brought the Market precinct to life in a window display at RMIT’s city campus on Cardigan Street.


Using mostly recycled and recyclable materials, the display represents the Market precinct and a colour scheme reminiscent of the iconic site.


Suspension techniques, paint techniques, and graphic design skills were all incorporated into the display.


Victoria Niewalda, Retail Development Planner, Queen Victoria Market, said collaborating with RMIT to develop the window has been highly beneficial.

“The students were provided with a brief to support the visual brand, highlight the different areas of the Market and use sustainable materials to construct the window.”

“I congratulate the students on their hard work throughout the project and look forward to further developing our industry partenership with RMIT University”


Queen Victoria Market will continue to work with RMIT University on a number of visual merchandising projects and provide the students with further opportunities to work with real life clients, including a project working with some of the Market’s traders.

The window is located at RMIT Building 94, 23–27 Cardigan Street, Carlton and can be viewed until the end of May. You can view more of the students work on instagram #rmitvm
