FLAME Stilt Performers were invited by Carrie Berkey, the director of Passion 4 Fashion, to perform in the annual fashion show held in Wanaka, by local fashion outlets. She was inspired by the unusual height and effect of the stilts and had an evolving vision she wanted to add to the Earth, Wind & Fire themed show. Another winning ingredient was the creative costume design and making skills of Sonia Ritchie, also of Wanaka. The collaboration Carrie created with her vision, original music from The Nomad, costuming by Sonia and our Stilt performance skills came together magnificently.
Our two stilt performers opened the show with an otherworldly, wild, nature, contemporary ambience, with Alexander Mc Queen insipired headress. The rest of the show unfolded with models strutting various garments. On the final section, Fire, we donned our finale red and orange costumes to join the talented models from 47 Frocks.
Well done to all involved! super colab!
