bbrown Springs into 2018 with Sparkling New Ranges

We’re delighted to announce the launch of two new product ranges for 2018 at the forthcoming VM & Display Show and Retail Design Expo, this Spring.

18-01-31 Apollo New Crop
Apollo PVC

Metallic surfaces and finishes are in high demand, but using metals can be expensive, heavy and impractical to cover objects that aren’t flat. Our Apollo range of metallic silk PVC comes in five colours; silver, pewter, gold, bronze and the latest addition to the range, red. The fabric is lightweight (355gsm), can be used on a number of different substrates, can easily be used on uneven surfaces or to cover unusual shapes, and is more cost effective than using metals. The antique metal effect provides a strong metallic sheen with good lighting and is ideal for retail displays including shop windows.

18-01-31 Glitter Jazz New_resized
Glitter Jazz & Glitter Disco

In addition, we will be introducing 19 new trend colours to the Glitter Jazz, and two new colours to the Disco Glitter, ranges. What makes the Glitter Jazz range really stand out is the way it has been manufactured. Standard glitters are created using encapsulated pieces of glitter, or plain glitter, that is stuck flat onto the backing. Our Glitter Jazz is randomly stuck to the backing fabric, so regardless of the location of the glitter fabric or the lighting source, it will always catch the light perfectly wherever your audience’s viewpoint is – ideal to bring your display to life and create impact.

 

We can now overprint both Glitter Jazz and Disco Glitter ranges with your bespoke artwork, and still provide you with the peace of mind that we are the only fire rated provider in the industry. Samples are now available to order via this website, simply go to Products/PVC/Metallic PVC for the Apollo range or Products/Fabrics/Glitter Fabrics for the Glitter Jazz and Disco ranges.

 

We will be on stand C1 at the VM & Display Show between 18th and 19th April, and on stand F201 at the Retail Design Expo between 2nd and 3rd May. Come and say ‘hello’.

Another TV show with Glitter: The People’s Strictly

This week, we’ve seen the launch of a new version of one of our favourite shows ‘Strictly Come Dancing’: The People’s Strictly.

In this show, instead of celebrities, we will see real-life heroes dancing and singing on the famous ballroom floor.

But what we most like of the show is the setting, because there is glitter EVERYWHERE!! The show was launched this week and it will last for 28 days! – So if you haven’t seen it yet, you have still plenty of time to see our Glitter!

Stars in Their Eyes is back!

The nation’s favourite has been missing from our Saturday night viewing since December 2006 when it was last hosted by Cat Deeley. The very first show, way back in 1990 was hosted by Lesley Crowther, saw the first 5 contestants step through the doors & smoke, transformed into stars Kylie Minogue, Shirley Bassey, John Lennon, Frank Sinatra & Roger Whitaker.

As the lights changed, the music started & they gave it their all. The set was fairly simple in its design but the clear change of lighting colours gave each contestant a set which looked different to the one before it. Simple but effective .

Take a look back to the first ever show from 21st July 1990 in here.

Its was a huge success & a Saturday night viewing hit was born, peaking in the 1990s under best known & loved host, Matthew Kelly who fronted the show for 11 years.

“Tonight Matthew I’m going to be…“ couldn’t resist it!

The revamped 2015 has a new host – madcap Harry Hill, who incidentally once performed as Morrissey on the show. Harry brings his own unique zany style to the show. Its early doors & his slapstick, don’t take us too serious style has divided opinion, but one thing that isn’t in doubt for us anyway is the sensational stage set. More glamorous than ever, the designer cleverly uses Glitter Jazz Platinum to add all the sparkle these look-a-like, sound-a-like stars can handle while making full use it’s capability to carry vibrant colour with every lighting colour change flick of the switch. Every act gets a new look.

I know we bleat on about Glitter fabric but this is a great example of just how versatile it is. It really is a perfect for stage sets. It’s no wonder that the cameras & set designers love it.

Here are just a few of the colour changes this one silver glitter set above under went in one show.
