Indulge in fashion decadence when Kate, Karl and Chanel make their Sofitel Brisbane debut on Friday September 9th.
Sofitel Brisbane Central presents Fashion Stills, a unique and exciting collection of photographs featuring some of the most iconic figures and moments in fashion history. Following a highly successful tour across Europe and North America, the exhibition was first displayed at the Sofitel Le Faubourg in late 2009. Designed and staged by the famous Polka Galerie in Paris, the exhibit has been touring with Sofitel Luxury Hotels at Melbourne and Sydney throughout the year, with its final destination – Brisbane, Queensland.
Fashion Stills invites you to take a peek behind the scenes at Dior, Chanel, Jean-Paul Gaultier, Yves St Laurent, Christian Lacroix and Givenchy, with the famous faces of Karl Lagerfeld, Carla Bruni and Kate Moss. Star photographers, Derek Hudson, Francoise Huguier, Jean-Marie Périer and Gérard Uféras, have all succeeded in capturing unique moments on the couture catwalk.
