Moda in Villa with Clay Paky
The Italian fashion show Moda in Villa took place in early September. The event, organized by Uniontessile and Unionorafi of Apindustria, Vicenza, was staged at the Villa Cordellina Lombardi in Montecchio Maggiore (one of the most prestigious Vicentine villas with frescoes by Tiepolo), and previewed not only this winter’s fashions, but jewellery that was to be later presented at Orogemma 2002.

In addition to a special satellite programme on the TV Moda channel broadcast by TELE + and Stream TV throughout almost the whole of Europe, the evening could also be watched live on the web via a link on

As planned by the organizers, the lighting system played a fundamental role at the event: as well as illuminating the catwalk, it also created a highly imaginative backdrop, colouring and delineating the villa’s façade and projecting the logos of designers present. The lighting rig drew heavily from the Clay Paky portfolio, and was coordinated by Altair, Clay Paky’s distributor for Triveneto, in collaboration with Rossi Luigi service, Jesolo. The system featured Stage Zoom 1200s, which illuminated the facade and provided lateral beams on the flight of steps; Stage Light 300s, positioned at the feet of the four columns, coloured them and provided backlighting; Mini Scan HPEs illuminated the stage and catwalk, Astroscans completed the special effects with slow moving evocative multiple beams and CP Colors coloured the facade. Other products sourced from the Clay Paky catalogue included the QS-LT followspot, the V.I.P. 300 DIA Display Line for logo projection and a Golden Fog 2000 DMX for effects.
