The Lakme FW Installations We worked on city-wide wrappings and strange installations for the LFW
For the Lakme Fashion week installations, the idea was to use quick and cost-effective materials to create a unique language, in a series of fun, high-energy city wide interventions
The Design of the Installations involved detailed studies of levels and drapes for the various levels proposed. We favoured the use of a distinct geometry to create a form of inverted scalloped dome in fabric
As a build up to the Fashion week, we created a series of city wide wrappings, to pique curiosity about the event. We wrapped Froggie, a series of mannequins in participating fashion stores, and a bunch of odds and ends across the city
The Installations were experimented with at various levels within the venue, each detail being designed to optimise effect while keeping weight to the minimum so as not to stress the prefab shed structure
Lighting tests for the Chandeliers, and the overall effect of the inverted domes. We designed two different textures into the domes, to play with drapery and lighting
The Finished wrapped Facade for the Lakme Source venue, to continue the wrapped theme. The idea was to connect with the city-wide wrappings at the venue

The Finished lit Chandeliers, at the Talent Box, Source venue. The idea of using fabrics allowed great versatility in lighting, allowing the chandeliers to work differently at different places through the venue
Our strange installation inside the Lakme Fashion week event, playing with non-linear narratives. We tried to create new meaning by wrapping disparate objects together with small tags, to create quirky stories

We also worked on spin-offs of the wrapping idea, with the language extending to every element of the space, in different variations.
