On Friday 17 February, the largest fashion show ever to happen in London took place at the iconic Palladium theatre in front of over 2,200 guests. The Department are proud to be co- producers of Joshua Kane’s landmark AW17 runway show, which was one of the highlights of London Fashion Week. A film of the show co-directed and co-produced by Sky Sharrock and Massimo Petracca (Lowkey Productions) can be viewed here: https://vimeo.com/205527802
Joshua Kane filled the 2,286 seater London Palladium for what has been hailed as London Fashion Week’s biggest capacity show. The collection was presented in the most theatrical of bespoke sets designed by David Gardiner, and the show featured performances by dancers Amy McTee and Ruaridh Bisset from the Central School of Ballet, directed by Heidi Hall. The dancers wore specially tailored versions of Joshua's signature three-piece suits.
The theme of Joshua Kane’s AW17 runway show was ‘Journey’, and the audience were treated to a visual journey choreographed by Andy Turner (Mass Movement) with assistant choreographer Gaz Davis, featuring models wearing the exquisite tailoring of Kane’s AW17 collection, ballet and live music from a classical string quartet.
The Department have regularly collaborated with Joshua Kane and supported his stratospheric rise to the top of the fashion industry, and in 2016 Joshua had a starring role in The Department’s immersive experience with Jude Law to launch the Lexus RX.
