Debuting at London’s esteemed Halcyon Gallery, Dato’ Farah Khan has brought out her A-game for The Art of Style collection. The private exhibition is graced by the label’s VIP clientele, along with the gallery’s patrons. Inspiring the 30 piece couture collection are 20th century’s most dignified artists: Pablo Picasso, Henri Matisse, Vincent van Gogh, Marc Chagall, and Claude Monet, to name a few. Halcyon Gallery also witnessed Farah’s stunning limited edition collection of bomber jackets, inspired by Andy Warhol.
Dato’ Farah Khan has the entranced laced with a collection of couture jackets based on the work of sculptor Lorenzo Quinn. Translating the artist’s metal-based sculptures, namely Four Loves, and Forces of Love, Dato’ Farah Khan has given jackets her signature lush embellishments. An interesting information is that Quinn’s work Four Loves was based of C.S. Lewis’s literary work. Indeed, the entire collection is enveloped with all things art, making fashion a homage of art, and art imitating literature.
Among the biggest names that attended the event are Her Excellency Evelyne Genta, and art patron Datin Chai Schnyder. On that day, Datin Chai was clad in a Farah Khan Couture piece of her own, which was inspired by a Picasso that she herself is in possession of.
Ally Mukhriz attended the event wearing the Lorenzo Quinn-inspired Couture jacket. Mr Quinn himself was present at the glamorous yet intimate exhibition.
Also looking majestic in a Monet-inspired evening gown was the wife of President & Founder of Halcyon Gallery, Katie Green.
