Project Details

We helped create a spectacular exhibition which showcased iconic garments from the Fondation Pierre Bergé – Yves Saint Laurent collection for the first time in the UK.

The show also opens up a dialogue with The Bowes Museum’s collection, creating a unique sense of narrative around the history of fashion.

We were heavily involved with delivering dramatic lighting scenes throughout the exhibition, whilst also battling the heavy restraints that the precious textiles create.

Enhancing the delicate patterns was achieved by careful lighting design.

These effects were achieved by installing lighting that raked the textiles whilst also keeping within the 50 Lux threshold.

Along with undertaking the lighting throughout the exhibit, we also installed a handful of AV interactives including a large projection with immersive audio system playing back the iconic catwalk moments of the YSL’s Haute Couture.
