Calvin Klein's 40th Year in Business

Discussion in 'Landscapes, Architecture, and Cityscapes' started by Mr. Graceful, Sep 13, 2008.

  1. $3.5 million dollars, 5,500 roses, a 4 hour party for 700 exclusive guests and he didn't even show up. The party included access to the Highline: an abandoned, elevated railroad track that will eventually become a public park. The price tag included an "undisclosed amount" to the Friends of the Highline as a charitable donation.

    Lighting by jkld, inc., and God . . .

    Waiting for the truss to fly in (any flat surface will do) . . .

    This shot was taken after we were done striking all the lighting gear waiting for the truck to show up.

  3. Good stuff Rich! I take it you work for Calvin Klein or the company responsible for setting up this event?
  4. Thanks.

    Thanks, Dez. I work for a lighting design firm (freelance, of course) that does mostly fashion shows. Last week was pretty busy!
