V&A Museum - Wedding Dresses
A combination of Precision Lighting’s Pico Zoom and Evo X11 LED fixtures have been selected to illuminate the glamorous new Wedding Dresses exhibition at the V&A Museum. Wedding Dresses 1775-2014 offers an insight into the history of dresses and the lives of the wearers. The exhibition is on display at the museum for 10 months and contains the work of key fashion designers such as Vivienne Westwood, Vera Wang and Charles Frederick Worth. Pieces on show include those worn by Dita Von Teese for her marriage to Marilyn Manson, and outfits worn by Gwen Stefani and Gavin Rossdale for their wedding day.
The lighting design by Studio ZNA offers a high contrast scheme with Precision Lighting’s spotlights precisely focused on the luxurious gowns to highlight the exquisite details within the fabrics. The Evo X11 LED fixtures contain 20º optics; specified to ensure the gowns are well-lit, whilst preserving the high impact environment which ensures the pieces have a particularly eye catching intensity and prominence.
Precision Lighting’s Pico Zoom, with tool-less adjustable beam technology, allows for flexible lighting design and ensures that lighting for all future exhibitions can be easily adjusted to suit without the need for new fixtures.
The exhibition remains at the V&A until March 2015 and offers a panorama of fashion over the last two centuries.
