An exhibition and pop up boutique for Fleet Ilya's innovative leatherware was held at a Castle Gibson location, a beautiful five-story period property situated on the Kingsland Road in East London in November 2010. The 3 day weekend event began with an opening night with DJ sets. The period house was transformed into a setting for the elegant and stylish leather items, showcasing the sometimes extreme nature of the designs.

On the ground floor I designed and built a pop up shop displaying the Fleet Ilya's leather belts, bags and jewellery on platforms wrapped in black latex, gold studded plinths and a series of elegant rope pulley systems showed off their bondage range.

I also helped art direct the other floors. The basement housed the bar, while the second floor showed off their stunning signature leather clad horse and a satellite bar that I designed using a wall of fresh, white roses. On the third floor was an exhibition of photographs and moving stills, featuring the luxury leather and bondage wear, shot by the acclaimed fashion photographer Rankin, starring model Sophie Willing and her partner Jethro Cave.
