For the 3rd in the Koi series of fashion galas, the spotlight on October 20th was firmly on a private collection of vintage Dior.  With a night entitled PARIS BONSOIR RETROSPECTIVE TRIBUTE TO CHRISTIAN DIOR, Koi restaurant and the Club@Koi took guests on a sartorial trip through the ages of Parisian fashion.

Having hosted the enormously successful Versace Retrospective in April at the grand gala launch of both Koi restaurant and the Club@Koi, as well as the Roberto Cavalli Tribute fashion gala in August; the Koi triumvirate venue of restaurant, lounge and club channelled Paris through the ages for the Paris Bonsoir Retrospective Tribute to Christian Dior with an exquisite private collection flown in from Europe.

Amplifying the fashion show to a new level were Vogue dancers from the Thailand Waack Company who brought such energy and movement to open the show.

Italian DJ Luigi Anello got the party started with his tantalising mash-up of house, funk, groove and electronica.  Italian vocalist Davidino HTS worked his vocalist magic to elevate the music to new heights.  These two are the ultimate Italian party starters.theclubkoi (166 of 199)

Some guests arrived early to Koi and partook in a special dining experience extending the evening to a dinner and show.  A sensational set menu designed by Head Chef, Chef Hisashi crafted to show off the talent of the chefs and the quality of the food at Koi was served to a full house.  Barron point oysters, Koi signature Geleno rolls, Kagoshima beef and foie gras skewers, pumpkin and lobster bisque, salmon carpaccio, almond crusted Japanese golden snapper, Wagyu beef and Omakase Nigiri with a Koi special dessert ‘Koi Love’ blew the diners away.


Offering breath-taking views of Bangkok’s skyline, this exclusive event took place on the 39th Floor of Sathorn Square Building.

In the USA Koi’s ground-breaking California-Japanese style cuisine and its emphasis on design, intimacy and style have made it a regular for the nation’s glitterati from George Clooney to Madonna. In the same vein Koi Bangkok has already become a go to venue for food, fashion and nightlife.
