Harvey Nicks on New Cathedral Street has gone for a rainbow of 5,000 metres of colourful lights and an explosion of 3,000 stars for their festive window, which they say is aiming to spread “joy and positivity. Janet Wardley, head of visual display, said: “Themes of joy and positivity ran through the recent catwalk shows, evoking a determination not to dwell on the uncertain times of the current climate. "This inspired us to create a high energy scheme that uses dazzling colours lights and shapes to entertain our customers - some of the vinyls are so bright that the team had to wear sunglasses during the install!”The slogan “You shall go to the ball” ties in with the retailer’s big Christmas advert this year based around a modern-day Cinderella fairytale where a young woman loses her glittery heel on a train, and a handsome young chap helps to return it to her. Similarly, Paddington Bear features heavily at Marks and Spencer, as the cartoon bear features in the retail giant’s heart-warming Christmas advert.It's all gone a bit Harry Potter at Primark, with a magical snow-capped scene dominating the huge windows of its Market Street store.Restaurants have also been getting in on the act, with Rosso Italian restaurant at the top of King Street wrapped up like a giant Christmas present in a huge golden bow.Fashion shop Diesel on King Street has gone for a suitably wacky display with goats dressed up in leather jackets and jeans with the slogan “also available for humans”.French Connection, which has just opened its new store on St Ann's Square sparkles with strings of lights, while the Jack Wills store on King Street also impressed with dazzling lightwork.
