White Light dazzles on the runway for London Fashion Week’s finest

As London Fashion

Week recently returned for new season collection launches, technical production

specialist White Light (WL) once again delivered full support to some of its

most eagerly anticipated catwalk shows.






The Tanks at Tate

Modern housed the Tommy Hilfiger x Lewis Hamilton show, which

saw models including the Formula One driver himself and Naomi

Campbell unveil the new season’s looks. Bureau Betak

directed the whole creation and production of the show while WL provided under their

direction a large lighting and power distribution system to

transform the industrial, blank-canvas spaces. The WL

team of 16 was led onsite by Lighting Crew Chief, Alan Fotheringhame, supported

by WL Senior Account Manager, Dominic Yates.






Over 400

moving lights and more than 350 LED fixtures were utilised to enhance the

runway. These included, 114 x Varilite VL2600 profiles, 148 x Chauvet Rogue R1

FX-B moving heads, 100 x Robe 150 Beams and 80 x Astera Titan Tubes. The rig

was driven by 4 x Grand MA2 Consoles.






Another high-profile event saw Preen By Thornton Bregazzi launch their Autumn Winter 2020 collection at Church House Westminster, produced by creative agency Pretty Bird. The dome-shaped Assembly Hall provided a stylish backdrop for the runway and WL worked closely with Lighting Designer, Tupac Matir, supplying all lighting, rigging and power distribution.






The key

equipment specification included 94 x Source 4 Profiles, 48 x Astera Titan

Tubes and 13 x SGM P5 Flood fixtures.






Dominic comments: “London Fashion Week always sees our

team deliver multiple shows in a very diverse range of venues. Our expertise in

fashion events and experience in transforming different spaces, hugely adds to

what can be achieved with production to transform venues and bring the designers’

collections to life.”






Further shows delivered by WL during

London Fashion Week included Victoria Beckham at Banqueting House, produced by

Gainsbury&Whiting; Simone Rocha at Lancaster House produced by Karla Otto

and Molly Goddard, produced by Blonstein at Central Hall Westminster.
