Lighting Club to Catwalk at the V&A

After designing Hollywood Costume and David Bowie Is… at the V&A, DHA were pleased to use their expertise to light Club to Catwalk: London Fashion in the 80s. The exhibition is displayed over two floors in the recently refurbished Fashion Gallery, and runs until February 2014. The fabulous collection of fashion on display is predominantly lit with LED spots, with retro-fit lamps used in the V&A’s older equipment.

To contrast the two styles, the Catwalksection is all in showcases and lit in predominantly white LED spots, softened by some linear fluorescent. The CLub section upstairs is all on open display, lit with coloured filters and uses a lot of uplighting for added theatricality.
