One of the highlights of this year’s Virgin Australia’s Melbourne Fashion Festival was the Mimco Fashion show. Held at Central City Studios with rigging and lighting supplied by Resolution X . Studio 2 was transformed from a cavernous empty space, into a cutting edge fashion show presented in the round, and then converted back again, all in the space of 24 hours.
The concept of a circular catwalk and design requirements of lighting the models from each side without the light spilling onto the audience was achieved by using two circular trusses. An inner 11m faceted circular truss, and an outer segmented elliptical truss, all pieced together with Browns Precision Welding400mm box truss. By utilising the faceted truss system Resolution X are able to create circles from 4.75m diameter all the way up to massive 23.75m truss circles.
Two and five kilowatt studio fresnels (with some clever barn-dooring) created the bulk of the illumination, whilst ResX’s new Full Boar Hog4 controlled a fleet of 12 Martin MAC Vipers to great effect. Luke Thorley Project Manager at ResX took the overall concept for the show and made it a reality.
