Tall Storeys at Vogue Festival
The exacting standards of Vogue magazine saw Neptunus structures supply the temporary venue that housed the recent Vogue Festival 2016 fashion event. Abigail Parkin (31 May ’16)
Themed around the magazine’s centenary anniversary, the event was staged in partnership with Harrods at ‘Vogue World’ on East Albert Lawn in Kensington Gardens and at The Royal Geographic Society.
Visitors flocked to the venue for two days of all-things-fashion induced by a speaker panel of style luminaries which included Domenico Dolce, Stefano Gabbana, Christopher Kane and Kim Kardashian West.
Events agency Timebased Events was enlisted to deliver the Vogue Festival brief. The agency has a rich provenance in creating demanding events for glamorous names such as GQ and the (imminent) Glamour Women of the Year awards.
Richard Dodgson, Timebased’s creative director, said: “Neptunus supplied us with an excellent selection of equipment for this event that was all delivered on time and within the budget. We were particularly pleased with the brand new roofs which ensured the event structure looked suitably premium.”
This included a series of temporary structures covering over 1,800 square metres which formed a fashion show catwalk, talk space area, a Green Room, main entrance, production offices and a kitchen. A team of 10 Neptunus’ technicians took just three days to construct the venue.
