Vivienne Westwood: The Exhibition travelled to a small and exclusive list of international cities, including Sheffield. The launch event was required to be a striking and glamorous affair that evoked the style of Westwood.
Ruby Slippers worked with Museums Sheffield and the Westwood team to provide a full event management service that supported Museum Sheffield’s marketing and communications objectives. The event was developed with careful attention to detail, designed to create talkability and place a spotlight on Sheffield.
“The V&A Vivienne Westwood exhibition launch at Museums Sheffield was The Sheffield party of 2008. As the only UK showing of this world V&A tour it became the “must attend” event for the city with tickets being traded on ebay just to get in. Without Ruby Slippers we simply would not have had the capacity to deliver an event this big with our in-house team. Ruby Slippers brought imagination, a passion for Westwood design, and most importantly for us meticulous organisational skills to deliver this huge event. From arranging celebrity attendance, to security, to set dressing, to clearing up after they applied their tireless enthusiasm and dedication with equal vigour. I would certainly use them for future events in need of a bit of magic”.
