To celebrate DSF’s 20th anniversary in style, Dhamani recently hosted The Diamond Fashion Show — an exclusive and intimate evening, where jewellery designers showcased a stunning collection of diamond pieces on a catwalk set against the backdrop of the Burj Khalifa.
To ensure that the high profile event reached the required standard, SLS Production was brought on board to look after proceedings.
The entrance to the main area was through a custom-made 30m long LED fairy light tunnel. The main challenge was creating a structure that would accommodate all the equipment needed for a fashion show, yet not have too many support structures that would take up valuable floor space.
With safety also a priority, SLS used part of its Total Solutions roof system to create the main structure. Added to that, the company used its Litec truss as Sub-hangs, from which all the equipment was rigged.
A diamond-shaped truss was also created, keeping in mind the jewellery theme. To add to the glamour, the stage was finished with a silver mirror surface, while extra care was taken to make sure all cabling was neat, safe and as invisible as possible, which SLS Productions told Sound & Stage was: “really appreciated by the client.”
Lighting was fulfilled by Clay Paky, Arri, ETC & Grand MA; sound with JBL Vertec Series supported by Crown Amps and XTA processing. Total Solutions roof system and Litec Truss were used, with video kit by Christie.
