When the design team for Stacey Bendet's Alice + Olivia brand called for assistance with their 2013 Fall Fashion Week show, we knew it wasn't going to be your run of the mill fashion week show. Superstar Performance Duo DJ Mia Moretti & Electric Violinist Caitlin Moe (aka The DOLLS) provided the soundtrack and musical festivities, which meant professional Audio & DJ Equipment riders needed to be satisfied...
We were contacted less than 3 weeks before the event, and our schedule was almost completely booked for NY Fashion Week. (Some designers book up to a year in advance to ensure there were no issues with equipment or staff.) This was going to be interesting!
Luckily, the event was taking place in the heart of the Meat Packing District, where we had multiple trucks and staff already staged at other events, so all we had to do was allocate everything to this event to make it all work. And WORK. WE. DID.
We arrived at an empty-canvas of a space. Our task at hand was to transform it into something magical.
We built 3 separate Stages, set up DJ equipment & a full Sound System, laid down Red Carpet, and set up Blue Velvet Ropes and Chrome Stanchions for crowd control. Charged up the rental walkie talkies, built a platform for the photographer, and performed a sound check...
Then handed the reigns to the set design crew. WHEW!
One of our Audio Engineers returned later to provide technical support for the duration of the event.
As always, it was a gorgeous, out of this world Alice + Olivia show, this time inspired by French Street Fashion.
Check out the final result...
