Fashion + Aid 2017 with Resolution X

Posted on Wednesday, October 18th, 2017

Celebrating its 10th year, FASHION+AID combines the latest designer master pieces and collections with fine dining to support several great charitable causes. Held at Crown’s Palladium, FASHION+AID is one night that is celebrated by any fashionista and those who love the finer things in life. The night was hosted by the celebrity comedian Dave Hughes, along with entertainment from DJ’s Chloe and Perio, Eva Soclaro, as well as many others.

Resolution X was chosen by Australia’s most exclusive special events company, Trumpet Events, to supply a spectacular lighting and stage set for the night. ResX supplied and programmed a myriad of fixtures, including Claypaky Sharpys, Martin Professional MAC Auras, and MAC Quantum Washes, controlled via MA Lighting International grandMA2 light consoles.

The jaw-dropping centrepiece of the lighting design was the custom LED archway – designed and production managed by ResX’s very own Jamie Russell. The LED archway used over 150 pixel-mapped ShowPro DreamPix Tubes supported by sections of T2 Box Truss. By individually pixel-mapping the DreamPix tubes, the team were able to extend the artwork on the rear LED wall through a coolux Pandora’s Box media server, creating some spectacular and unique looks. Mixing the DreamPix tubes with the curved T2 Box Truss made a unique spiky proscenium arch which wowed both the organisers and the attendees.
