Retailing is constantly changing and a vision of the future can be obtained from Singapore. This is a city of green walls, futuristic architecture and progressive retailers. It is also a city that has maintained the traditional quarters and the wet market and Arab quarters are still some of my favourite places.
It is also one of the most expensive cities to live in. 90% of produce is imported and buying in a supermarket is an expensive activity.
One lesson that I took home was that window displays can be made effective by using simple tools and materials. Paper and a cardboard are very much in vogue as a window prop.
