Not to get picky, but this looks more like a job for a door dresser than a window dresser. Two very distinct occupations with wildly different standards.
Interesting about the standards for doors and windows. I have a very old connection to this stuff. My mother was a staff artist at Saks 34th Street. As a kid, in summers I would often go into the city with her. The Saks building was, as I recall, 8 stories tall, with one through five being the retail space. The artists occupied a long, narrow bullpen along the north wall of the 7th floor. Ten foot ceiling, desk-to-ceiling windows, gorgeous light (the Macy's building, directly across the street, was about the same height and didn't block the light). The rest of the enormous 7th floor served as storage and preparation area for all the materials used by the window-dressers. It was a fabulous playground for a fairly self-reliant little kid.
