Long time collaborators Inca Productions approached us to bring some immersive magic to Harrods High Jewellery Gala event in celebration of their top clients’ loyal custom.
Held at the magnificent Banqueting House, 175 guests entered an Enchanted English Garden, where foliage, flowers and a 360 soundscape set the scene. Guests were treated to an exclusive exhibition of Harrods’ finest jewellery in the Undercroft, before a thunderclap and sounds of rain signified it was time for guests to continue their journey. Under the cover of umbrellas, Cellar Society staff led the way upstairs to the main hall.
The main hall, where guests sat for dinner, resembled overgrown formal gardens. Amongst the abundant wild flowers and trees lay Grecian statues. As the light of the day began to fade, the sound of a string quartet was carried on the wind, and our statues stirred. Awake for the first time they filled their lungs, stretched, laughed. Joyfully they left their pedestals and began to dance freely in their garden. They danced amongst the guests, playful, spellbinding, just out of reach, until, mesmerised by their own reflection, they fell beneath the surface of the pond.
