Fashion Show : SAKS Hair & Beauty

31/05/08

We were approached by SAKS hair &  beauty based in the David Lloyd leisure centre in Long Ashton.

They wanted to put on a Fashion Show to showcase their hairdressing prowess. In addition they wanted a live band.

The ceiling was only about 7 ft high so we built the lowest catwalk in history.

We made sure to provide plenty of lighting to ensure the models hair sparkled and the clothes looked their best. 16 x 500 watt par cans on dimmers hooked up to a basic dmx lighting desk.

We bought in the Pete Trill band as they are a great audience pleaser and very easy to work with. We supplied a live sound rig with 2 x 18″ bins, 2 x 12″ tops and 3 x floor wedges all powered by Crown. We used an A&H desk with a rack of BSS eq and DBX outboard. It sounded great.

It was a great night but nobody paid any attention to the band which was a travesty as they display some of the best musicianship in the UK.
