As an event planner there are times when I become inspired by a painting or a cutely decorated garden to design something new and exquisite. Today I was inspired by a venue in Downtown Houston.
With ceilings stretching up to the sky and richly textured columns The Corinthian
made my eyes widen and sparkle with ideas. I immediately envisioned a couture fashion show highlighting New York’s finest designers. The back drop of the venue had two gorgeous staircases that landed on a marble stage that could easily extend out into a glamorously chic long celebrity runway. With ceilings studded with jewel encased chandeliers and infinitely beautiful qualities it could easily seat 600 of Houston’s finest fashionistas.
With a designer’s eye, like my own, I would drape the ceiling with gorgeous sheer fabric reaching from wall to wall. Colored accent lighting would reflect against the columns to accentuate the architecture. To boost the central focus of the show where the models enter the runway there would be a backdrop framed by angelic fabrics and soft glowing lights. On either side of the runway entrance we would have large hanging crystals. Underneath these crystals will be lighting that will shift from
one heavenly color to another upon each introduction of a new designer. This light will run through the crystals creating a magical reflection uncharacteristic to any fashion show. The runway would be lined by angelic feathers shaped into flowers with Swarovski Crystal centers. Crystals would dangle down from the second floor to match the crystal candelabras placed throughout the venue. With the fabulous soiréebliss! Team we would easily transform this classical venue into the chicest of chic runway show.
