The Summer Ball

Rachel
I'm just starting work on a very exciting event design for the summer: Central's Summer Ball at The Old Vic Tunnels! I just graduated from Central last year and now work at The Old Vic Tunnels, so to design the ball for my old university in my new workplace is a really fun opportunity for me. 
Just to set the scene, the space is a vast expanse of tunnels underneath Waterloo station; dark, derelict, industrial and really atmospheric. I'm planning to transform the space into a world somewhere between A Midsummer Night's Dream and Grimms Fairytales... A dark enchanted forest. 
My design is well underway, so I thought it might be fun to share some of my inspiration images as a bit of a teaser.

I can't wait to start making overgrown fairy-lit archways, collecting jars and hanging cotton bolls! This is my favourite way to design - to have so much freedom and such an amazing space is so rare, I'm going to make sure it is the best summer ball ever! 
Oh... and I'm also thinking of making my dress roughly inspired by this BEAUTY (above) - thoughts?
