WHILE STILL IN ART SCHOOL TONY DUQUETTE WAS HIRED BY BULLOCKS DEPARTMENT STORES TO CHANGE THE INTERIORS OF THE STORE TO REFLECT THE SEASONS.  BECAUSE LOS ANGELES HAS NO DISCERNABLE SEASONS AND BECAUSE IN THOSE DAYS THE LADIES IN LOS ANGELES WERE DRESSING IN THE SAME  FASHIONS AND STYLES AS THE LADIES IN NEW YORK, (IN OTHER WORDS IF THEY WERE WEARING TWEEDS AND FURS IN NEW YORK WHERE IT WAS COLD, THEY WERE WEARING TWEEDS AND FURS IN LOS ANGELES WHERE IT WAS WARM) THEREFORE,  IT WAS TONY’S JOB TO MAKE THE STORE INTERIORS APPEAR TO CHANGE SEASONS.
