Chic Catwalk Show
Portal, the hotel lobby bar and the spiral staircase were utilised as a dazzling three-dimensional fashion runway for the opening party on 17 June. Professional models presented three extraordinary fashion catwalks to showcase the impressive 2016 autumn and winter collections of over 15 fantastic designer brands, including CHEZ HEEZI, J WOO, NOIR, Tina Blossom, C/MEO COLLECTIVE, FINDERS KEEPERS, KEEPSAKE, THE FIFTH, etc. from Korea, Australia and Thailand. All invited guests were dressed specifically in “classic” and “contemporary” styles, according to their preferences. Korean designers also provided a tutorial to share outfit-matching tips with guests on-site.
Inspired by the works of an illustrator and fashion designer from Jordan, Shamekh Bluwi, the hotel collaborated once again with young contemporary paper-cutting artist, Ms. Guo Meng, to make a series of creative sketches of women whose dresses are cut in a way that the background is visible, rendering some parts of the bodies transparent. Guests used most of these artworks with Portal and the hotel interior as their background, and just let their imagination run free.
