Gallery 8th floor, Bangkok Art and Culture Centre

Bangkok - French Embassy, Alliance Francais, and Bangkok Art and Culture Centre present a Thai-French Fashion Photography Exhibition ; Fashion3, giving a 360 degree view of Fashion: on one side of the camera, fabulous Fashion photos, portraits of creators and models, and on the other side, exceptional photographers.

France is world-renowned for its Haute Couture and its catwalk shows; Thailand also has many fashion creators. Thanks to modern communications, Fashion has become a world passion, and photography, much more than television, has widely contributed to this phenomenon. There are countless Fashion photos that have become iconic and as famous as their subjects. But the names of the photographers are rarely known. As they are necessarily behind the camera, they are retiring people and rarely in the limelight. This year, with 3 exhibits in 1, is giving a 360 degree view of Fashion: on one side of the camera, fabulous Fashion photos, portraits of creators and models, and on the other side, exceptional photographers.

Fashion3 is the title chosen by LA FETE for 3 exhibitions in one: “Fashion Story(ies)” / “Moonlight” / “Samsara: The beauty of Birth, Death and Everything else in between (repeat)”. With Fashion3, discover the diversity of fashion photography through the eyes of French, Thai and European photographers.

“Fashion Story(ies)” shows a world of beauty through the eyes of 4 world-famous photographers: Jean-Marie Périer, Gérard Uféras, Françoise Huguier, and Derek Hudson. They will share all the secrets of French Fashion with you: from the workrooms to the cat-walks, behind the scenes of “Fashion Weeks”, the daily life of stars, such as Yves Saint-Laurent, Kate Moss, Yamamoto, Lacroix, Mugler, Givenchy, Dior, Carla Bruni, Chanel, Karl Lagerfeld… Fashion at its stunning best! Adélie de Ipanema and Edouard Genestar are the curators of the exhibition and, also, directors of Polka Galerie (Paris, France): www.polkagalerie.com

“Moonlight” illustrates the renewal of Fashion photography. Jean-François Lepage worked for great names such as Christian Dior, Comme des Garçons, Masaki Matsushima, Nina Ricci, Le Printemps and Shu Uemura. He has been published by many international magazines such as Harper’s Bazaar, Mixte, Numero, Purple and Vogue. His distinctive style turns photography into fine art.

"Samsara: The beauty of Birth, Death and Everything else in between (repeat)" showcases the works of Thailand’s main Fashion photographers. This exhibition is a perfect complement to the first two and will enable you to appreciate the talent of Sakchai Guy, Nat Prakobsantisuk, Punsiri Siriwetchapun, Tada Varich, Surat Jariyawaatanawiijit, Chutharat Pornmuneesoontorn, Kornkrit Jianpinidnan, etc.
