Fashion Show Bench Hire & Design

Fashion shows require a specialist style of seating that is minimal and stylish. Often normal seating is fussy and visually distracting from the clothing and show of a fashion event taking away from the garments and visualisations which have been so meticulously planned in production.

This year we saw an unusually high demand for fashion show benches, so much so that our entire set-build facility was at maximum capacity for a week making 86 benches for the world famous London fashion show. With only one week to make the benches, the team worked swiftly and efficiently to successfully complete this work.

As is our commitment to your production, we'll work tirelessly to meet your design requirements, brief and budget to ensure the smooth running of your production.

In response to this need, SXS have designed and developed our own bespoke fashion seating system that is perfect for the needs of fashion show producers. These benches are used for retail fashion events as well as couture shows and are used at London Fashion Week almost every seasons.

Fashion show bench features

Here at SXS events we developed this design from initial concept right through to final production. Durable, easily transportable, stackable and aesthetically pleasing this benches are perfect for any high-end fashion event. Our benches have been made from solid pine throughout and feature the following features:

  • 8 foot reducing the unit numbers required
  • Can be painted in any colour of your choice
  • Due to the wooden construction they are fully refurbished before every use using resin filler, prior to sanding and repainting.
  • They are stackable and interlocking meaning they are easily transported and stored. This is often very useful for shows where the benches need to be setup and removed quickly
  • Their minimal aesthetic doesn't detract from the clothing
  • They can easily be bolted down when needed depending on the flooring type in situ
  • They are easily transported for installation in sets of ten
  • We designed and manufactured them in house which means we can make more as needed at short notice (we've made 86 in a week before)
