Creative window-dresser throws shop a lifeline
PIALBA'S Lifeline store was at threat of going under but its finances have been turned around thanks to the skills of window-dresser Louise Lavelle.
"I'd get the shoes and make them all fancy dancy and get the little bit of accessories and I'd just put it all together," she said.
"It's the talk of the town.
"Everyone loves and buzzes about it."
Louise is now a manager at the Lifeline store, which has seen a significant customer increase as her "spicy" window displays continue to attract interest.
"I come up with an idea about what the next major event is in the area, say Valentine's Day, and I think red, black, sexy, lingerie, chocolates, love hearts, flowers," she said.
Louise has an eye for design which has led to her becoming the chief window designer for the Pialba Lifeline branch.
