#EVENTS VIP Corporate Launch

"The Show Must Go On"
Location: K2 Mcr City Centre
Date: 25th Jan 2012

So following the SKJA Lookbook shoot a mere 2days later, the show must go on and that it did all under the elaborate Oriental K2 roof.

The models were well prepared and ready to wow the premier audience a diverse mix of Business owners, Directors, Bankers and other Corporate big shots. 

They were welcomed by a champagne reception, classy hostesses and the elegance of the extravagant surroundings.

Back of house was less glamorous and laid back as always, as the models were prepped for the Runway Opening. Having said that, it was one of the most aesthetically pleasing surroundings I've ever worked in behind the scenes of a fashion show.
The Hair & Make up Teams I put together were amazing. Rotating the male and female models efficiently and executing the briefed 1920's -1940's look exquisitely.
I was hands on back of house and front from Runway run throughs, lighting sequences, Pop Up Boutique set ups, goodie bag distribution. 

The Menswear showcased 1st and set an upbeat tone.

Stomping down the runway with full energy against a gradually exuberantly lit background to the Gramaphonedzie remix of the Jessica Rabbit theme tune, "Why Dont You Do Right", Have a listen above.

Contrary to the prior the SKJA womens range set a more classy tone. The music pace was dropped as well as the lighting then to be spot lit with romantic mood lighting. 
The room was filled with the timeless classic sound of Ella Fitz Gerald's "Lady is a Tramp". The models strutted down the runway to the playful swing beat with confidence.
This really set a high end tone for this event and the feedback from the attendees was more than positive. 
I have to take my hat off to the models they were all amazing and a massive thank you to the hair and make-up teams too.

Stay Sxc xx
