ON DECEMBER 8, 2022, VMSD attended the annual PAVE Gala at the Frank Gehry-designed IAC Building in New York. In honor of PAVE’s 30th anniversary, the evening intended to inspire, connect and celebrate students, educators and professionals across the retail industry.

During the event, VMSD honored three retailers with our 19th annual Excellence in Visual Merchandising and Store Design awards, which recognize retailers whose New York stores support a visual merchandising strategy that enhances the brand image and highlights the merchandise; for daring to be different and coupling the nuances of innovative store design and the magic of visual merchandising.

This year’s winners included House of Showfields (Brooklyn); the NHL flagship store (Manhattan West); and Hermès (Madison Avenue). VMSD’s Managing Editor Carly Hagedon and New York Editor Eric Feigenbaum took to the stage to present the coveted crystal apple awards to the winners in attendance.
