Incredible ‘Spring Orchard’ installation at Melbourne’s GPO, by Amanda Henderson of Gloss Creative.

‘Spring Orchard’ installation at Melbourne’s GPO, by Amanda Henderson of Gloss Creative.

I spent a fair bit of time in the city last week during the final days of Melbourne’s State of Design festival, and whilst there I noticed this AMAZING installation cascading from the first floor of the GPO!  Jeepers CREEPERS it is incredible!  Entitled ‘ Spring Orchard’, this stylised paper jungle is the work of GENIUS Melbourne-based visual merchandiser / event stylist Amanda Henderson of Gloss Creative.  In an extraordinary coincidence, last week I was also very lucky to meet the amazing Amanda Henderson for the first time, after we were fortuitously both invited to co-host a discussion panel for the festival early last week.  Must say I was a little star struck as I have been a fan of her work for such a long time… she surely is one of Melbourne’s most talented creatives!  I am now stalking her for an interview.  Stay tuned!

Do pop in to the GPO and check out the stunning Spring Orchard installation soon!  Too beautiful.  (ALSO new spring fashion is in store in all the lovely posh shops on the first floor… happy window shopping!)

    Lucy , thank you for your post on this – for me it’s strong proof that retail centres are understanding that it is an experience they are giving their customers and are creating a new kind of retail theatre. For a client to attempt this kind of work in the current ‘doom and gloom ‘ is courageous and inspiring….. But more on that in our interview…..Amanda H
