Interview with Pierre Garroudi/ Fashion Flash Mob II


Ravensbourne2011 Interview - Pierre Garroudi from V-Films on Vimeo.


...and don't forget about the fashion Flash mob happening on Wednesdsay 8th June!

After the success of the last 'Red-Stopping' flash-mob, Pierre Garroudi is planning his second street catwalk, taking to some of London's most distinguished avenues with his cast of models and dancers.
This exciting campaign will showcase the 'Turquoise Collection'/Beauty of the Sea*** conveying an aesthetically pleasing experience of creatures born of a mystical island, lost at sea. Pierre's signature style is prominent through the hand-crafted intricacy formed through beautiful fabric manipulation; technically, its all about volume and texture.
Multi-layered matte and sheen silks become second skin to the wearer, portraying scales of reptilian kinds in all their beauty. Magnificent ruffled head pieces and elongated silhouettes are reflective to those of a mermaid, while luxuriously draped neck pieces represent secret ocean treasures.
Join Pierre on his sensational voyage on June 8th. The flash-mob of 20 models will kickstart the journey at 2PM from Pierre Garroudi gallery in London Bridge and will travel to Bond street using one of London's busiest tube lines, finally ending in the acclaimed area, Knightsbridge. Yet again, this will create huge hype with the intention to be even more engaging thana the first. Flash-mob II is a promising head-turner, this pulling surprises from his neatly sewn sleeve.

[Coverage] Pierre Garroudi Fashion Flashmob Goes Viral!



 
I hope everyone had a good Easter /Royal wedding weekend! Sorry for the delay in posting. It has been three weeks since Pierre showcased his Couture red collection around central London.The event was definitely a showstopper, causing roadblocks, hijacking the tube, train stations, passageways and even a pedal bike! We broke down the 'snobish' persona usually associated with luxury fashion and connected with what really matters. Which is? Creativity and FUN!

Wherever we went the cameras certainly followed, we cheered, the models struck their poses and the dancers entertained the crowds and kept the energy flowing.
My experience of the whole event was amazing! 
To document this extravaganza in the most creative way possible we decided to put together a viral video. Call it Fashion Loves Music with a bit of a twist. Please check out the footage below, it will guarantee to have you shuffling!!

Official Press Release: Pierre Garroudi Taking Over London



















Pierre Garroudi takes London by storm, bombarding the streets with Haute Couture
Haute Couture fashion designer, Pierre Garroudi from East London, ambushed the streets of London with his pillar-box ‘Red-Stopping Collection’ on 21st April 2011. The head turning, crowd-pleasing performance featured 20 models and talented street dance performers - posing, pouting and winking from London Bridge to Trafalgar Square. The public was astounded by the creativity oozing from the collection “the most exciting thing I’ve ever seen on the tube.” The project created a phenomenal atmosphere, fresh and exciting, epitomising the sensual limitless powers of fashion.

Pierre Garroudi is the first fashion designer to use London as a catwalk, an innovative concept of a ‘flash mob’ providing a source of advertisement and brand awareness.

This is the first of the ‘flash mob’ events. Two more of these events have been confirmed for Summer 2011.
