Art Becomes Fashion
By Sara Darling
Fashion Month might be over, but there is still time to soak up some incredible designs, which are on show at the Sofitel London, St James until June 20th.
French artist Stephane Koerwyn is showcasing a number of his one-of-a-kind dresses and canvas paintings in an exhibition which opened during London Fashion Week, and the pioneering hotel in central London is the perfect backdrop for his experimental works.
Merging the worlds of art and fashion, Koerwyn’s show stopping dresses are constructed from recycled Aluminium, and the cutting-edge designs are displayed as installations throughout the hotel lobby, along with more of Koerwyn’s artworks.
Hailing from the south of France, he made his foray into art after quitting his high powered marketing career. Based in Paris, he focuses on pushing boundaries of the conventional art world, to paint on Aluminium sheeting. This unique approach breaths a new lease of life into the reflective surfaces when they are transformed into timeless wearable art for men or women.
See them for yourself at the Sofitel London St James- which is the perfect backdrop for the vivid colours and complex textures which complement the vibrant décor of the hotel. The exclusive residence in central London is one of just 120 chic and decadent hotels which transcend time and offer an understated sense of luxury around the globe.
