Entry Fee: Free

First displayed  at the Sofitel Le Faubourg in late 2009, the Fashion Stills exhibition – designed and staged by the famous Polka Galerie in Paris – will tour with Sofitel Luxury Hotels in Australia to visit Melbourne, Sydney and Brisbane throughout 2011.

Fashion Stills invites you to take a peek behind the scenes at Dior, Chanel, Jean-Paul Gaultier, Yves St Laurent, Christian Lacroix, Givenchy with the famous faces of Karl Lagerfield, Carla Bruni and Kate Moss.  Star photographers, Derek Hudson, Francoise Huguier, Jean-Marie Périer and Gérard Uféras, have succeeded in capturing unique moments on the haute couture catwalk, via an eccentric pose or by immortalising a dress, a design or a celebrated fashion designer’s work desk.  

The tailor-made exhibition is currently in house at the Sofitel Melbourne on Collins to coincide with the L’Oreal Melbourne Fashion Festival until the 14th of April and will launch in Sydney on the 2nd of May at the Sofitel Sydney Wentworth.

Following a four month Sydney residence, the display will then move on to the Sofitel Brisbane Central where it will be on show from the 2nd of September until the 29th of December.

Sofitel Sydney Wentworth General Manager Marc Cherrier says, “The Sofitel brand is an ambassador of French elegance and culture, and we are honoured to celebrate that heritage by supporting French themed literary, gastronomy, fashion or music events. The Fashion Stills exhibition is a great example of how the Sofitel Luxury Hotel network is increasingly using special events as a link between its addresses, countries and continents.”
