International and local fashion designers, both globally established and emerging regional talent, will have a chance to use Sofitel So Bangkok as their canvas for a month-long show, highlighting conceptual fashion, art, and design ingenuity. Entitled "Nature vs Society", the multi-disciplinary fashion and art exhibition allows the artists free reign over how their works will be showcased in order to have audiences immersed and at one with the exhibition.
Execution of the theme is completely open to reinterpretation by the respective artists based on their personal, hypothetical, imagined, or circumstantial experiences. Designers taking part in the event include Tawn C, emerging talented Thai designer, Christine Gauthier with a "Waterlily" display, Cambodia-based Filipino designer Don Protasio, and Eric Raisina who will come with a "Haute Texture" showcase. There is also a fashion showcase of the staff uniforms at Sofitel So Bangkok's Club Signature designed by Christian Lacroix.
A specially curated art tour and corresponding booklet will provide visitors and hotel guests with information on the art installations displayed throughout the Street Lobby hotel entrance (ground floor), Red Oven Water Pond (7th floor), Park Lobby (9th floor), Metal Element Atrium (14th floor) and Club Signature (25th floor).
Nature vs Society will be on show at Sofitel So Bangkok on Sathon Road from Aug 1-31. Call 02-624-0000.
