Famous French fashion designer Pierre Cardin plans to visit Astana twice this summer and attend the world specialized exhibition EXPO 2017. This was told to the Bnews.kz information portal by the nephew of the legendary fashion designer - designer and architect Rodrigo Basilicati.
"We came to present Pierre Cardin’s project about the energy of the future. It is one of the projects that my uncle made a long time. The technology is unique, no else did it before. It will be interesting for EXPO visitors. The project is called “The Palace of Pierre Cardin", it is a three-leafed glass flower, connected by 6-discs in the middle. Each of the petal fulfils its function: the first petal is the office space, the second petal is the residential complex, the third petal is the hotel. The Palace will be fully provided with alternative energy sources such as the Sun and the wind,” Basilicati told.
He noted that the structure has been invented in such a way as to “distribute” energy to other buildings.
"I liked the project, and I decided to work with one engineering group of 30 people, to make it interesting and correct. We worked on this project for a long time, in fact the project was prepared for Venice, because there is a lot of sun and wind," the architect shared.
Speaking about the visit of the fashion designer himself, Basilicati said that Cardin plans to stage a spectacle in Kazakhstan entitled “The Picture of Dorian Gray".
Cardin is not only a designer, he has staged a lot of plays, films, about 50 performances. His favourite production is “The Picture of Dorian Gray.” It reveals the theme of beauty and its fragility, which was presented with great success in Venice, Italy. We went to South America, to Spain, and now we go to you,” said the nephew of the famous fashion designer.
The performance will take place on August 31, and from 1 to 4 September the fashion show of Pierre Cardin will be held in Astana.
“There will be about 200 costumes presented in Kazakhstan, and there must be something new and interesting. He never forgets the past models that he showed 40 years ago.We will be holding a performance and making a show in honour of the 70th anniversary of Pierre Cardin's work in fashion business. We are now negotiating his project called “Palace of Light" and his arrival would be relevant.We are working to ensure that his visit takes place when a press conference on the project is held, as well as the premiere of "The Picture of Dorian Gray” In Astana,” concluded Basilicati.
The edition notes that the official spokesman of the House "Pierre Cardin" in Astana, Gulnar Zhussupova, confirmed the dates of the legendary fashion designer’s arrival in the capital of Kazakhstan.
