The Smirnoff Midnight Circus will take place at the CentralWorld Live, 8th floor of CentralWorld on Saturday from 8 pm on wards. Visit www.facebook.com/SmirnoffThailand
Legendary fashion photographer and artist David LaChapelle will make a debut visit to the City of Angels for a showcase of his masterpieces during the "Smirnoff Midnight Circus" party.
Renowned for his distinctive vision when collaborating with famous faces such as Madonna, Britney Spears and Jennifer Lopez, LaChapelle has created an interactive art installation, which will be shown exclusively for the first time in Asia at this event.
This is a rare chance to view the hyper-realistic photos by the American lensman whose works have graced the covers and pages of many famous magazines such as Italian Vogue, French Vogue, Vanity Fair, GQ, Rolling Stone and i-D.
After establishing himself as a fixture in contemporary photography, LaChapelle decided to branch out and direct music videos, live theatrical events, and documentary films.
In 2006 he decided to minimise his participation in commercial photography and return to his roots by focusing on fine-art photography. Since then, he has exhibited in both commercial galleries and leading public institutions around the world.
Also ready to ignite fun and excitement in all party-goers on the night will be Christian Carlsson, a member of Swedish pop band Miike Snow, French-based house deejay The Toxic Avenger and Thailand's disco superstar Burin Boonwisut of Groove Riders.
