How do you show apparel?

Now that you have a better idea of your shelving and hanging options, you’ll want to know how to display clothes on a wall. There are many ways to display your clothing and apparel. With a multitude of options and display accessories, your choice will come down to the desired look of your shop or retail space.

That being said, there are a few rules to follow when it comes to effectively displaying apparel so that it appeals to customers. In essence, the way things are displayed can have a real effect on whether items sell or not. 

If you’re thinking of using a wall display system for your clothing, keep these things in mind:

Consider the height

When you’re working with wall systems, you have a lot of available space to work with. Because of this, it’s easy to think you should fill up all of this space for your display – from floor to ceiling. However, it’s best to think about your customers when selecting the placement and height of your displays. For their convenience and yours, position clothing within reach and within eye-level.

Placing clothing items too high can lead to customers ignoring them or becoming frustrated that they can’t look at them more closely. On top of this, it can become a safety risk if customers try to reach for items above their heads.

Think about adding texture and variety to your displays

The art of visual merchandising can seem confusing, but essentially it is about making your items look as appealing as possible to your customers.

You can do this in a number of ways, but some simple things include adding different textures and colours to your displays, as well as a variety of items to catch customers eyes.

By creating several different points of interest in your display and showcasing your range of clothing items, you’ll better appeal to a broad range of customers and give them more purchase options.

Don’t clutter or overload your displays

A big part of visual merchandising, as well as workplace safety, is avoiding clutter in your wall displays. When you overload your displays, it can put strain on the wall system. This can become a safety risk if the systems were to break or collapse. Make sure you check the weight limits of your chosen system so that you can display the appropriate amount.

Cluttering your display with too many items also affects the visual appearance. With too many items, customers won’t know where to look. Display select items that you want to highlight and include multiple size options, but don’t overload racks, hooks or shelves.
