Colour World 2017

For the second year running, MC Motors hosted the Colour World 2017 event and we were absolutely thrilled! With elaborate dying techniques and unique ways to keep your colour in for longer over the summer season, guests were immersed in a world of knowledge. From exciting talks to hands on demonstrations, we were never lacking in exciting things to discover!

David Bailey x Valentino 17/18 Campaign

Returning back to his East London roots, David Bailey came to MC Motors to photograph the 2017/18 Valentino campaign shoot. Like something out of the past, Bailey made a simple, yet unique set, utilising all the antique signs and props to create a visually pleasing photo, filled with many colours and textures. Almost like stepping back into The Beatles era, the models rocked the boy band look as they posed in a modern twist of vintage punk apparel. It’s always a pleasure to have such a talented character back at MC Motors for such a fun and gorgeous shoot! e14a8ccb-8f17-4870-a7d1-3a53029b5f17 a6f00910-c844-4948-805f-4bcb65d3e2cd 21f0382b-4ee5-4b1d-9a07-9a0853e309a4 e0007bd6-2ae0-4eb8-a992-2c5469c068bb 29c39f46-7374-4ed5-93fe-0cb6a3036422

Brooklyn Brewery Beer Mansion 2017

For the second year running, Brooklyn Brewery’s Beer Mansion was a huge success! It was wonderful getting to see MC Motors transformed from our everyday industrial space, to a jungle like maze, and our Blue factory resembling a booze filled beach holiday! Who wouldn’t love that!? Some of our favourite parts of the evening were strange events that occurred throughout; eating ox hearts over a ‘dead’ body, searching blindfolded through a pitch black room, eating insects(!!!!!!!), and of course, sampling all the incredible flavours of beer within the mansion. From live bands to a great DJ set, people were dancing the night away, immersed in the wonderful world that was the Beer Mansion.

Thanks again to everyone who came, it was a great experience having everyone back again, and we hope y
ou all had an exceptional time!

Ellie Goulding ft. Deichmann

Last month we hosted Ellie Goulding’s shoe launch in collaboration with Deichmann, at our MC Motors location. The setup for the event was gorgeous, with lovely little white umbrellas floating above the entrance way, sheilding everyone from the rain. The main room was styled with fabulous pastel furniture, strategically setup for the models to walk the catwalk showcase. The shoes were all displayed artistically around the location, like paintings in frames along the windows, and shoes peeping out the lockers. Ellie Goulding gave an astounding performance later on in the launch, and everyone enjoyed a good drink and chat afterwards. Overall it was great day filled with lovely people, and we were happy to be apart of it!  IMG_0941 IMG_0880 IMG_0896

Boiler Room x Zalando

Is fashion and partying your kinda thing? Say no more. On Wednesday September 21st, we hosted an incredible Boiler Room event in collaboration with Zalando. VIP guests were invited into our MC Motors location to see the launch of the popular brand which originated in Berlin. The setup was stunning with technologically advanced dresses displayed in a polaroidesque style against the industrial brick. The glass fibres of one of the dresses made for such gorgeous and unique flash photography, that it projected magnificently again the harsh background. 150 of the lucky first arrivals were greeted with the opportunity to get a free pair of specially designed, Adidas trainers from artists right there and then.

Down in our Blue Factory, the Boiler Room club scene was taking place. Ruby’s Dalston supplied the bar while Dj’s such as Black Foot Phoenix, Kitty Cash and Bradley Zero kept the crowd pumping throughout the night. To finish everything off, Jamie Woon played a wonderful, upbeat and soulful set. A fantastic night with some incredible people and we were thrilled to be apart of it!

On September 15, we were happy to host the 2016 Darc Night Awards at our MC Motors location. It was a prestigious architecture awards ceremony that contained an array of extravagant light installations from collaborations with manufacturing partners and designers. The ceremony was quite unique, presented in the style of an art gallery opening, with the option for street food and drinks, giving off a very warm and welcoming appeal. It was a great opportunity to see our location transformed to fit such stunning installations for some very talented artists! Checkout some footage from the event below, and don’t forget to go over to the Darc Night page to find out who won each category! http://darcawards.com/architectural/darc-night/
