Every year, the major North American Television broadcast networks gather in NYC for what's called “Upfronts”.
The main purpose is to allow marketers to buy commercial airtime “up front” before the fall TV season begins, and the networks usually hold them in grand venues such as Radio City Music Hall or Carnegie Hall.
This year CBS's Upfront Party was held at Lincoln Center in NYC. Complete Production Design & Production Management were executed by Chris Jones Designs who chose Drape Kings for their pipe and drape rental needs which included creating custom built gable ends (as seen in upper area in the photo to the right) using our exquisite white sheer drapery fabric which allowed amazing light to enter the event space. To finish off the look, Drape Kings' Royal Blue Velour Pipe and Drape was used to frame the main entry way. (More photos are available to view on the CBS site.) In each photo above, you can see Drape Kings royal blue velour pipe and drape in the background .
“We were so thrilled to work with these primetime networks helping them showcase their red carpet events with our best royal blue velour drapery”. The first half of event was a showcase of CBS Fall 2011 show line-up for media and sponsors, and the second was a party/celebration for CBS employees.
For the 2011 FIFI Awards & Celebration held at Damrosch Park Tent @ Lincoln Center, grey velour drape was the prime choice, and Drape Kings again had the pleasure of working with Chris Jones Designs as well as Dalzell Productions. The first half of event was dedicated to an awards presentation for the fragrance industry, and the second was a party/celebration for industry professionals.
The FIFI Awards & Celebration was an exciting event this year with many famous attendees, celebrity presenters and winners such as Fergie from the Black Eyed Peas, Mary J. Blige and Halle Berry. See slideshow of photos at Bizbash.com.
