Concept of dress shop Bridal Magic

"A circuit-style dress shop inlaid with frames"

Many people of all nationalities throng the main street that leads from JR Himeji Station to the World Heritage Site of Himeji Castle.

Dress shop “Bridal Magic” is located in a side street just off this main street and was planned as a related facility in anticipation of the wedding hall that will face on to the main street (opening in March 2011).

The floor plan was created so that fitting rooms are located in the middle of the space and reception, waiting and dress display spaces are arranged around these. All four walls surrounding the fitting rooms are mirrored and randomly inlaid with frames. Some of these frames simply contain mirrors but others contain displays of accessories, apertures, lighting equipment and handles for the fitting room doors.

This use of space surprises customers and creates an encounter with a stunning dress. This dress shop evokes the feelings of expectation and exaltation of the bride, who is the centre of attention, with respect to her wedding.

    I love the concept of glass as a room divider and mirrors to make the rooms look bigger.

    …the interior is way more attracting than the dresses…

    Such a phenomenal pure space.
    Every bride will feel like a queen in it.
    I love that even the front door is satin glass.

    Great design, great concept.

    i don't mean anything bad really, the ambiance is right, but i seriously think if someone would have walk into it and had to look into the mirror all the time, they would have had their heads spinning…

    yes, glass have a way in making the room looks bigger, but when glass combined with random frames, it is very messy in a sense that you cant focus anymore, and also you would felt like you're trapped.

    No offense, but i personally think that…It is design for those who feels proud of their body shapes and their looks.

      I learned.
      I used as a reference next design.

    Urban Outfitters did white frames over everything a few years back… not seeing how the bridal shop is doing it differently.

    The white frames aren’t the highlight of that space – it’s the colours, the textures, the layout.
