How To Take Your 80’s Event Styling To The Next Level!
It was the 80’s that brought us Flashdance and The Breakfast Club, made slogan tees stylish and gave us stars such as Madonna and George Michael. One thing for sure is that they sure knew how to have a good time! If you’re looking to turn the clock back for your event and harness the tubular vibes, we’ve got the styling how to for you.
"Your venue will set the scene an 80’s wonderland. And once that’s done, just put your hair in a perm, pop on some Cindy Lauper and wait for the guests to join the dancefloor."
There’s no need to go over the top with fingerless gloves and scrunchies to throw an 80’s themed event (although personally, I'm on board if you are!). If you want to stay on brief but still want to retain some sophistication, think floor to ceiling drapes, uplit with classic 80's colours, use a combination of candy pink, sky blue, lime green, fanta orange and lemon yellow lighting for good measure. Your venue will set the scene an 80’s wonderland. And once that’s done, just put your hair in a perm, pop on some Cindy Lauper and wait for the guests to join the dancefloor.
Lighting in an important element for any event, especially in styling the iconic 80’s. Think bold lighting effects and playful ceiling installations with LED tubing. LED lighting can be used to change up the stage at your event or used to make an 80’s-esque gala performance come to life! - that will make the girls wanna have fun!
Forgot another mediocre photobooth (we've all seen that one...) and create the ultimate 80s scene with a vivid fluorescent backdrop and stunning lighting that will make you look gorgeous all night long. Use a carpet runner in hot pink to add that additional touch of glamour for all your guests. They'll be queing up to have their picture taken - so start crimping!
