high fashion style shoot

I just wanted to check in and see if your space was available on the 25th of next month? It looks perfect for the shoot I am planning! I am a fashion photographer and am coming over to work on some projects and travel. This project is 'sidewalk studio' where I am wanting to invite passers by to model in a high fashion style shoot. In using 'everyday' people in the place of fashion models I wish to explore representation and identity. I would need to set up a backdrop so am wondering if it is possible to move furniture etc if it is needed?
