|A fashionable offer from Congress Centre|
From: 17/11/2016 - 31/01/2018
In September hi-tech Congress Centre hosted an acclaimed catwalk show for celebrity design duo, Vin+Omi. To celebrate, when you book an event at the Central London venue you’ll receive 5% off your final bill when you mention this offer*.
Vin + Omi are renowned in the fashion world for dressing celebrities including Michelle Obama, Beyoncé and Debbie Harry. For their Spring/Summer ’17 show, Congress Hall, the largest space at Congress Centre, was transformed with hundreds of large black origami birds suspended from the space-frame glazed ceiling, which had been blacked out for the occasion. Black drapes were hung from the walls and giant black flower sculptures were installed to stunning effect, whilst dark red lighting succeeded in creating a contemporary gothic mood.
According to Vin: “The show was a huge success and succeeded in attracting all the key buyers, bloggers and fashion media we hoped it would, as well as a host of celebrities who came to watch. Congress Centre leapt out as the perfect venue as it has the right proportions, facilities, location and excellent staff. In order for us to have the confidence to transform a large space into a catwalk environment we needed the full support of the venue and Congress Centre’s staff have been wonderfully open-minded and supportive. Without this cooperation, great events cannot happen!”
In addition to Congress Hall, the designers booked the Congress Suites (four interconnecting rooms next to the Hall) to house their large backstage team of 150 people required for hair, makeup and nails.
