Although this year’s Milan Fashion week was over-shadowed by COVID-19 concerns, we can use this time to look back on the huge success of Moschino’s runway show in 2019 which was a grand show by the luxury fashion label.
The runway event incorporated an 80’s gameshow "Glitz and Bling" theme which was elegantly brought together with retro props and of course a dazzling sequin display for the finishing touch. The yellow gold sequin wall measured 4 meters high and 6 meters across, and served as the backdrop behind a classic golden slots machine, as well as a group of glamorous models dressed up in glittery Moschino haute-couture.
The gold sequin wall, populated with our standard 30mm shimmer disc range, brought a lot of attention towards the runway show, and caught the eyes of many of the photographers. The gold sequin panels can be seen in countless articles about the Milan Fashion week in 2019.
Shimmerwalls in Fashion and Runway shows
Over the past few years, Shimmerwalls has been involved in countless projects with fashion brands all over the world. A number of these can be found on our website. Sequin panels are a great way to show off a new clothing line in an extravagant but elegant way.
How to present your runway show with Sequin Walls
Runway shows are famous for going all-out with colours, shapes, lights and props to give their audiences an exciting display; so, what better a time to add a glimmering sequin panel wall to catch your viewers’ attention. Moschino perfectly incorporated our Shimmerwall into their event, using our expansive range of available colours, we were able to help them choose the correct shade of gold which would complement their 80s game-show theme.
Using the following tips, you can have your dazzling sequin wall backdrop captivate the audience at your fashion show in no time:
1. Make sure to use a wall size which charms the audience, but which also doesn’t steal the show! When designing a fashion show, it is important to use empty space so your audience knows what they should be looking at (in this case, your clothes!). As a general guide, we would recommend a height a meter above the height of a human model, 2-3 meters; and a length wide enough for a photographer to snap that magazine-cover shot, 10 meters!
2. Choose a sequin colour(s) that complements the theme of your show. Have a think about the colours you are incorporating into your event to make sure the colour you choose will match well with your theme.
3. Lastly… get creative! You can go for our more subtle 30mm standard sequin range to border your set elegantly, or else choose our micro 15mm sequin range if you want to show off some extravagant detail and add that extra shine to your display. Don’t hesitate to ask our experienced designers for advice on what could work for your project, we are here to help.
