BTS Harper's Bazaar 150th Anniversary Event
FW18

A quick overview of how this project went down.

When Harper’s Bazaar asked us to help produce their Empire State of Fashion Event to cel- ebrate their 150th anniversary, we couldn’t have been more excited.

The night would start with a party at the iconic Rainbow Room and culminate with timed projections of the pages of Harper’s Bazaar over the last 150 years onto the side of the Empire State Building. But before the big reveal, there was much preparation to be done...

As usual, it all starts with a walk through - this one began with a ride up one of the fastest el- evators we have ever encountered - seventy floors in forty two seconds. After taking in the view, and the majestic ballroom of the Rainbow Room, we decided to use brass and gray velvet decor to compliment the venue’s already opulent aesthetic.

First impressions are of course- key, so we constructed a twenty foot wide step and repeat to match Tiffany’s Blue...

And ordered four hundred pairs of gold binoculars, staged at the entrance to greet guests as they arrived - What better way to give them a hint about the main event?

After cocktails and an introduction by Glenda Bailey, Editor-In-Chief of Harper’s Bazaar, the lights dimmed and the countdown began, and the guest of honor, Kylie Jenner (!!), flipped the switch and voila - there was 150 years of Harper’s Bazaar imagery illuminating the Empire State Building.
