Virgin Atlantic Uniform Launch 2014 – Case Study

Summary

Celebrating 30 years of high-flying excellence with premier UK travel brand, international style icons and artists this event brought together A List guests including Sir Richard Branson, Vivienne Westwood, Debbie Harry and Goldie. OneBigStar worked with production partners The Active Group and Rod Clay of MSPL for the iconic Virgin Atlantic.

Challenges & achievements

Keeping to a very tight schedule and restricted load in, we worked some long shifts to meet talent requirements and corporate expectations including a storming live set by Blondie and DJ set by Goldie. We had to ensure that all entrance and ambient areas combined perfectly with the Westwood-designed garments for this high-profile, star-studded occasion at the very cool Village Underground in Shoreditch, London. We supplied all the lighting and video technical crew along with the usual high standard of OneBigStar owned kit, including our brand new Philips Showline Nitro 510C RGBW LED Strobes. You can see what an impact they made in the video highlights here.
