Beginning in 2002, LDJ became onsite venue and show operations manager for the 70+ shows each season in “The Tents.” In 2013, we became the production agency of record, handling all aspects of the design, production and operation of the 100,000+ square foot facility hosting of 70+ shows and 20+ sponsor activations. In 2015, we took lead on moving and re-engineering NYFW after 22 years in tented structures entirely redesigning the runway venues, the guest experience, and flow of the event.
Since 2007, LDJ has produced every Project RUNWAY finale show, which takes place during NYFW. An iconic show that is the very best of television entertainment.
The LDJ Fashion Show Team produces and directs many of the top shows during New York Fashion Week, Men’s Fashion Week, and Bridal Week each season. We operate both onsite in the IMG Venues as well as source or produce in outside venues.
Clients include: Project RUNWAY, Christian Siriano, Thom Browne, Jenny Packham, Lela Rose, Billy Reid, Carlise, Leanne Marshall, and Mara Hoffman. In addition, we produce 5-10 international designer shows per season, with groups from Europe, Southeast Asia, and Central & South America.
Since 2009, LDJ has helped Christian put on some of the most exciting and innovative fashion shows each season. We have been honored to be part of his incredible journey as he continues to push boundaries in both design and culture and consider him both an excellent client and a personal friend of LDJ.
For the past 3 years, LDJ has produced the Kleinfeld Bridal show during Bridal Week. Kleinfeld’s impressive standing as a national bridal powerhouse is all that more impressive when understood that their quality and commitment to new design is always at the front of their corporate agenda.
LDJ’s Show Team produced the international launch of Thom Browne’s newest collection for 2017. Photo is during that photoshoot for digital and print advertising.
LDJ has been partnered with WORTH BY DESIGN for the past decade, and has watched the global brand grow into a powerhouse in their market segment. Pictured here, LDJ produced WORTH’s 25th Anniversary at the Waldorf Astoria ballroom. We re-imagined the space transforming it into a giant showroom of current collections displayed in rows on floor models and 25 years of magazine covers on the surrounding walls.
Mara Hoffman is no stranger to going big and bold. Her collection, featured here, was part of her newest swimwear line photographed at the Versace Mansion in Miami. LDJ produced the most important fashion event of SwimWeek.
Partnering with actress Eva Mendes and New York & Company, LDJ produced the launch of a new brand and fashion icon. Pictured here at Academy Mansion in New York, the salon style fashion show moved room-to-room through 3 separate and sophisticated styled atmospheres, highlighting the refined approach of the designer.
