A small group of young women, recently graduated from high school, had a big desire to support people with cancer. Between them, an idea sparked to raise funds through a fashion show, ‘Where Couture Meets the Cure’, with all proceeds to be directed to the Australian Cancer Research Foundation.
Initially the group approached Impact AV with a request for a basic audio visual package to support the event, to be held at Dockside. At that stage, not in their wildest dreams did they imagine how successful the event would become! The support they generated was amazing – including from fashion icons Alex Perry, Bianca Spender, Camilla, Carla Zampatti and Marie Skillings; big name entertainers such as Mark Lizotte (Deisel) and Wess Carr; and hosts Richard Wilkins and Natalie Gruslewski.
Suddenly we had an exciting, high profile event, with extremely complex production requirements, a limited budget and a tight time frame! The enthusiasm of the girls was so infectious, and their cause so admirable, that Impact AV happily became a sponsor of the event, providing services well beyond the brief to support an outcome which matched the professionalism required.
