When in Rome…

We pride ourselves on our versatility here at Wire Fittings, but we must admit even we were quite impressed to see our handiwork used to decorate a department store in Rome, one of the great shopping capitals of the world!

We created these colourful wire hangers following a request from Fruit Of The Loom, who wanted something to display their 2012 Born In The USA collection in the Italian capital’s flagship UPIM store. UPIM is a popular fashion chain with over 100 outlets in Italy, specialising in clothes, cosmetics and perfumes.

We love the finished look of the window dressing – great work by the Fruit Of The Loom guys!

The combination of the chains (not made by us!) and the large hangers really bring the clothes to life and give the display a punchy, in-your-face quality that is sure to turn heads even in the hustle and bustle of busy Rome.

Of course this is a bit of a departure from the work we produce on a day to day business – our central focus is still on providing high quality wire display stands and racks for retailers and other businesses. Still, we don’t like to turn down the chance to do something a bit different if the opportunity arises, especially if it means we get pride of place in a shopfront in the Eternal City!

Congratulations to you lucky five; your prizes will be on their way shortly.

If you entered but didn’t win, don’t worry – you can still claim your 5% discount on orders of our new combination system until the end of September.

For those that don’t know, our combination display stand is a unique system that allows you to display different sizes of cards on the same unit, giving you a level of versatility that you would normally only get with a bespoke system. You can order it direct from our stock, and there’s no minimum order requirement – you can ask for as many or as few as you want!

Head on over to our website to find out more about this innovative new floor stand for cards. It’s ideal for independent retail outlets, as you can sell a larger range of cards from more publishers, so you increase your product range and give your customers more choice!
