Case Study: The Design Maketh the Marquee

The Collaborative rises to the challenge year after year, to transform a number of rather austere marquee settings into glamorous and grand arenas for corporate hospitality events, across both the Caulfield Cup and Melbourne Cup race carnivals.

Tasked with a brief of creating an inviting and unexpected environment for guests we built an enviable vintage scene, drawing inspiration from all things antiquarian and equine.

The look was brought to life using French inspired loose weave hessian drapes, a palette of classic neutral tones, rustic ladders, wooden screens, eclectic installations of antique horse racing paraphernalia, vintage cloches and terrariums, custom designed horse silhouette upholstery and vintage inspired floral blooms.
