Bally's Grand Bazaar Shops in Las Vegas- Swarovski Boutique

One of the newest excitement in Vegas is Bally's Grand Bazaar shops at the corner of the Las Vegas Strip and Flamingo Ave. Central to the Grand Bazaar Shops’ experience is the Swarovski Crystal Starburst. Brilliantly colored light with sound and video, the Starburst soars above Grand Bazaar Shops’ colorful, mosaic-patterned rooftop canopy. The 14-foot-diameter sparkling sphere, composed of 924 custom-cut Swarovski crystals and more than 1,800 points of light, is the exciting focal point of the new retail venue. Her are some images of the project I had the opportunity to photograph very recently.

Congratulation to my client JGA for winning the Silver Award at the 2015 A.R.E. Store of the Year competition with the Las Vegas Hershey's Chocolate World store design.  Click below to watch a video presentation of the store.

John Varvatos Store, Detroit

Today is the public opening of the John Varvatos store in downtown Detroit.

The store is in a Gordon Lloyd-designed, 1891 building, which once upon a time housed the Wright Kay Jewelers. The 4000 sqft. store is touted by Bedrock Real Estate services -a Dan Gilbert company -to be "the first high-end designer fashion retailer in decades to open a permanent storefront in downtown Detroit."

I have photographed the new store for John Varvatos a couple of days ago. Let’s hope that this store will  start a real retail renaissance in Detroit.
