ARE YOU LOOKING TO HIRE A CATWALK STAGE? ON TOUR EVENTS CAN HELP
The UK fashion industry is worth a whopping £26 billion, making it our nation’s biggest creative industry. If you operate in this industry, we don’t need to tell you how essential catwalks are. Whether you need them for a spring/summer collection launch, or you’re pulling together a show for London Fashion Week, we’ve got bags of industry experience, and we are the go-to event partners for many London and Manchester-based fashion outfits.
Even though you might be well-versed in what you need from a catwalk, it’s worth running over the primary considerations to remind you of what you need to be thinking about when hiring a catwalk stage.
+CONSIDERATIONS FOR HIRING CATWALK STAGE & DESIGN SERVICE
When it comes to settling on a design for your catwalk, your initial thoughts should be preoccupied on your venue. Where you decide to host your fashion show or product launch is going to provide the most significant limitations to your design scope. The size of the available floor space, whether you can include a custom main stage in addition to your catwalk, and available seating options for your guests are all primarily going to be determined by your choice of venue.
Once you’ve discovered the parameters within which you’ll be working, we can work with you to create a design that works for you. There are plenty of specific design choices available (see below), so it’s important to assess them all on their own merits before deciding which option serves your specific needs the best.
Next, you need to think about your audio visual (AV) hire choices. Uplighting is crucial for fashion catwalk events as it helps to show outfits in their best light. How you incorporate them, as well as other vital pieces of event production such as sound equipment, into your stage design is something you need to think about ahead of time to avoid issues further down the line.
Lastly, you have to keep your models in mind. Many fashion outfits continue to up the ante with outlandish catwalk designs and themes, but you have to remember that the models are the ones walking on the stage. If you choose to pursue an overly-convoluted design, it could result in a model falling off the stage or heading in the wrong direction, making headlines for your brand for all the wrong reasons.
Speaking of design options, let’s talk you through what we can provide for you.
+TRADITIONAL CATWALK STAGE DESIGN
This option doesn’t need much much explanation. The classic, straight-line catwalk that can be made wide enough for two sets of individuals to comfortably walk up and down without cramping each other’s style.

ON TOUR EVENTS TALKS ''CATWALK STAGING'' AND SHARES SOME USEFUL INFORMATION
As the name suggests, these are catwalks that are shaped in the letter T. They give the models the ability to strut both left and right at the head of the catwalk. Perfect if you plan to have a VIP seating section.
+TIERED CATWALK STAGES
Depending on the planned choreography for your event, you may also want to have models make their way onto the catwalk platform using a tiered staging system. You could have models entering the runway from either behind or from the side of the catwalk.
+MAIN STAGE CATWALK EXTENSIONS
Some fashion shows focus exclusively on the runway, whereas others have choreographed displays on the main stage before models make their way out onto a runway flanked by on either side by the audience. We can provide this kind of hybrid setup for you without any extra fuss.
+SLOPING CATWALK RAMPS & STAGING PLATFORMS
Increasingly, we are being asked to provide sloping ramps and walkways for our fashion clients, and we are more than happy to oblige! We can either design and build these in a straight line, or make them in a concertina fashion, whereby the ramp snakes back on itself as it loses height.
+CUSTOM CATWALK DESIGNS
Nothing in the above list suit your needs? No problem, we can design a completely bespoke catwalk stage solution from scratch should you wish. All we need from you is a few broad ideas regarding what you’re looking for, and we can get to work crafting a stage design you’re happy with.
