Lighting designer Richard Rafter aims to take over London’s shop windows. Previously in-house at Liberty’s, where work included the London Fashion Week display shown above, Rafter has just set up his own company. The Lighting Department Limited aims to provide temporary lighting design for window displays. ‘Stores tend to spend a fortune on displays and props and don’t bother with the lighting. Most are dreadfully lit,’ says Rafter.
