window decorating competition

During the last quarter of 2016, four groups of students from The Art Institute of Austin, a branch of The Art Institute of Houston, competed in the “2nd Street Deck The District” competition. The fashion and interior design students were paired up with retail stores to transform business storefront windows into elaborate art installations. The competition offered the opportunity to earn collegiate scholarships. Our student teams worked with the stores Prize, Swatch, and Luxe to create the window concepts and then deliver on the design.

The Art Institute of Austin’s student team that worked with Prize earned the “Viewer’s Choice” award and “3rd place overall” with their window theme, “The Naughty List.”
