Adlib won a competitive tender process to supply catwalk hire, audio visual, lighting, staging and technical production services for Celebration of Style – a major multi-venue fashion event hosted in Liverpool.
Adlib were responsible for the technical production and AV equipment hire for the launch event at The Venue at The Royal Liver Building, the main catwalk show at The Cunard Building, a gala dinner at Knowsley Hall, the after-party at the Port of Liverpool Building and an exhibition at Rum Warehouse.
With just 2 weeks’ notice, Adlib was able to deliver over 180 lighting fixtures, 26 technical staff to support the events. During the planning, our project management team worked alongside the client to advise on and adjust to specific venue restrictions and to ensure the best possible experience for the guests.
For the main fashion show at The Cunard Building Adlib supplied:
Our lighting department supplied a lighting design that lit the models evenly whilst keeping within budget. This included design and supply of a large truss structure on which over 70 lighting fixtures were suspended above the catwalk. The Cunard’s existing architecture provided the backdrop to the event and was lit in pastel colours using high power LED wash lights.
With The Cunard Building being a large open-plan space, Adlib were required to create a changing area within the space. This was achieved through the use of our “pipe and drape” system which allowed us to drape off a section of the room and partition this into segregated quick change areas.
Adlib supplied the sound system for the catwalk show which required high impact music and sound for the MC and voice of God announcements. A separate PA system was required for the pre-show entertainment which included a live band performance in the centre of the room.
AV & Projection
Adlib supplied a large rear projection screen at the end of the catwalk which displayed sponsor slides and brand logos.
