Holiday Spectacular – Fashion Show, Las Vegas

A Holiday Themed Spectacle on the Las Vegas Strip.

Houses had the unique opportunity to work on a one-of-a-kind project when approached by General Growth Properties to create a “holiday experience” on the Las Vegas Strip. GGP’s property, Fashion Show, is a retail venue located on the northwest corner of Las Vegas Boulevard and Spring Mountain Road. The plaza of Fashion Show recently went through a major renovation. Part of this renovation was the addition of 3 giant LED screens, equating to 10,000 square feet in total area and towering to 112 feet at its maximum height. This is modern technology at its finest, the screens were designed, manufactured, and installed by USA-based manufacturing company, Daktronics.

With these new screens at our fingertips, Houses hit the ground running researching and conceptualizing a spectacular holiday show for all audiences. The show was to play every hour on the hour from 5pm to 2am with the ultimate goal of driving people into Fashion Show to go visit Santa…and shop of course. So we set out a few rules, design and production parameters, and ran with it. The overarching theme we settled on was; the holiday season from start to finish…

People start the season by decorating their homes…they get wrapped up in the holiday spirit…gifts get built/packaged somewhere (for us it’s in a futuristic Santa’s workshop)…they go participate in a winter activity…they enjoy giving and receiving gifts…they go to a party, they dance, they relish in the holiday spirit…they count down the last seconds….Happy New Year!!

The 4 minute piece came together without a hitch. Everyone was extremely pleased with how the holiday spectacular turned out, as were we. We had a jolly good time working with everyone involved. Enjoy!
